Tips & Tricks
  • Make your Hot Cross Cream Puff platter extra festive by decorating with Easter eggs!


  1. Gently melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, whisking until smooth.
  2. Evenly divide the melted chocolate between 3 bowls, reserving a few tablespoons for piping.
  3. Mix the cinnamon and cream into the first bowl of chocolate and mix the food colouring into the remaining 2 bowls.
  4. Dip half of your cream puffs in the cinnamon mix and set aside.
  5. Dip the remaining cream puffs in the coloured chocolate and quickly scatter with sprinkles before the chocolate sets.
  6. Place the reserved white chocolate in a piping bag, and pipe white chocolate crosses over the cinnamon cream puffs.
  7. Arrange the cream puffs on a platter in the shape of a wreath. Place in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
