Hot Cross Bun Truffles

  • Author: foodnerd4life
  • Total Time: 2 hours 2 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Adapted from Paul A Young Recipe


  • 2 Hot Cross Buns (of your choice)
  • 200ml Whole Milk
  • 50g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
  • 500g Dark Chocolate (but you can use milk chocolate instead)
  • 25g Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4tsp Mixed Spices (if your hot cross buns are really spicy you might want to miss this out)
  • 75g Cocoa Powder (for rolling)
  • 1/8 tsp Mixed Spice (for rolling)
  • 75g White Chocolate (melted)


  1. In a medium saucepan bring the milk, sugar, butter and the hot cross buns crumbled to a gentle simmer for 2 minutes. Using a hand blender purée until smooth.
  2. While still hot, pour on to the dark chocolate drops and whisk well until smooth and allow to cool thoroughly before refrigerating for 2 hours.
  3. Once set roll the ganache into even sized balls using your fingers and cocoa powder to prevent the ganache from becoming sticky and place on a baking tray.
  4. Mix the cocoa powder and additional mixed spice and coat the ganache balls. Pipe over the white chocolate in a cross over the top to resemble a cross on a hot cross bun.
  5. Enjoy them within one week and keep in a cool dark place. If they last that long in your house.
