This hot cross bun nice cream sandwich is the ultimate treat to enjoy over the Easter break. Hot cross buns are good on their own but the addition of spiced nice cream really takes it to the next level. For added decadence, we recommend a drizzle of chocolate sauce. 

To simplify, you can purchase your choice of organic and/or gluten free hot cross buns from your local health food store. However if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even make your own! Try our healthified chocolate chip hot cross buns.
