Top the ice cream with a drizzle of chocolate sauce (because why not?), and finally, crown your creation with the other half of the hot cross bun. Add mini chocolate easter eggs for an extra bit of chocolatey goodness! Behold, a delightful ice cream sandwich that’s perfect for Easter indulgence.

Give your hot cross bun a delightful afternoon tea makeover. Split a Traditional or Cranberry Hot Cross Bun in half and generously spread your favorite jam on both sides. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top, and voila! For an extra crunch, try toasting your buns to perfection.


4. S’mores Hot Cross Buns

Embrace the gooey goodness with a s’mores-inspired hot cross bun delight. Split your hot cross bun and spread each side with chocolate spread. Sandwich 3-4 marshmallows between the top and bottom bun. Pop the whole ensemble into the air fryer for 3 minutes at 180 degrees or until the marshmallows turn irresistibly soft and gooey.
