Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream Sandwiches

Servings 6


  • 6 Hot cross buns – I used the brioche version for $4.50 for 6
  • 6 large scoops of Countdown Own Brand Hokey Pokey Ice Cream
  • Your choice of leftover Easter eggs –The hollow ones are best for melting but for mixing with ice cream anything is suitable. I used 5 Hollow Cadbury Easter Eggs and 1 Klett Hollow Bunny.


  1. Take your ice cream out of the fridge for 5-10 mins to soften.
  2. Crush up your Easter eggs by cutting with a sharp knife. You don’t want the pieces too big otherwise they don’t mix into the ice cream well.
  3. In a bowl, add the ice cream and half of the crushed chocolate and mix. Put back in the freezer until you are ready to assemble.
  4. Put your oven on grill and the jug on to boil.
  5. half your hot cross buns and lightly toast
  6. Make a double boiler to melt your chocolate by pouring boiling water into a pot and placing a stainless steel bowl with the chocolate in it, on top. The water should not touch the bowl.
  7. Slowly the chocolate will melt. I give a stir with a metal spoon occasionally. Once melted turn off immediately and take off the heat.
  8. Take the tops of your buns and spread the inside with melted chocolate, set aside.
  9. Take your ice cream out of the freezer and place a large spoonful on top to the bun bases.
  10. Place your bun top on top and serve!
