Make the most of Easter treats

Throughout April shops are filled with hot cross buns, marshmallow eggs, speckled eggs and many more delicious treats for the Easter weekend. Despite the amount of chocolate everyone eats, there always seems to be an abundance of leftovers. Perdeby looked into ways you can enjoy leftover Easter treats.

Hot cross bun ice cream sandwiches

Use these baked Easter goods to the fullest. Cut open the hot cross buns and place the bottoms in a baking dish.

Ice creams that pair well with the hot cross buns include rum and raisin and chocolate.
