Cookery class: chocolate hot cross buns in 3 easy steps

It’s almost Easter, so it’s time to share my latest seasonal treat.

How do you make chocolate hot cross buns in 3 steps (and 30 seconds)? I did this at the office, because someone donated the ingredients and someone else made a wise-crack about combining them. (I seem to have this face that says, ‘give me food – preferably with chocolate’.)

Start with a hot cross bun and some Easter eggs from the bottom drawer…

Fire up the office toaster…

Chocolate lava-centered hot cross bun… Tastes WOW.

Tip for young players:

Don’t try this first time just before an important meeting with your boss, lest some of that chocolatey goodness should squirt out of your bun and all down your skirt. My director happened to come past in time for me to give her a big, brown grin. And I’m not at all being naughty.

Thanks to CS for the bun and YD for the awesome suggestion.

    Too funny!
    I do this with white bread too. Shane, who is a bit more of an expert on this sort of ‘bachelors cooking’ has perfected the art of placing a mars bar in a coffee mug, putting it in the microwave and zapping it. The goop at the bottom is really quite delicious! It’s doesn’t mix, so it’s kinda like a layered desert πŸ™‚

      Microwaved chocolate – that opens up a whole new world!

      Sometimes, the simplest things are the best. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it sooner!
