Celebrate spring and Easter with a tasty 3 ingredient hot cross bun ice cream sandwich! So simple and so delicious!
Easter dinner can be a pretty epic event. Cooking a massive roast dinner is no mean feat and if you have family coming over then it’s pretty hectic.
We’ll be having a big roast dinner with all the trimmings, so for dessert I wanted something no-fuss.
I love baking cakes, and my easy carrot cake is great at Easter. But sometimes I just can’t face baking (I know!).
If you want a dessert ready in mere minutes, then you must try these hot cross buns ice cream. They’re quick, easy and a definite crowd-pleaser.
Although you can use any store-bought hot cross buns, you could also make my carrot and ginger hot cross buns.
How To Make 3-Ingredient Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream Sandwiches
You will need:
Hot cross buns (any flavour works well – I used toffee and dark chocolate)
Vanilla ice cream (go for a really nice one! Or even a dairy free vegan one)
You can pretty much tell how to make these just from looking at the photo! Just toast the hot cross buns, add a scoop of ice cream, drizzle on some chocolate sauce and serve!
The ice cream melts slightly beneath the hot toasted buns. Vanilla is the perfect ice cream and it works beautifully with the gently spiced, sweet hot cross buns. The contrast between the fluffy bread, cold ice cream and rich chocolate syrup is a match made in Easter dessert heaven.
Plus, after spending half the day cooking Easter dinner you can whip the dessert together in just a few minutes! This is surely the quickest, yet showstopping, dessert possible.
