M&S has shared a simple trick to transform hot cross buns into tasty churros

Trine Jensen-Burke

It wouldn’t be Easter without a hot cross bun, or two – but we bet you have never had them this way before.

M&S just took to Instagram last week to share a genius food hack – how to turn hot cross buns into crispy, delicious churros.

And needless to say, people were loving the idea.

Captioning the tempting-looking image, M&S wrote:

“Any two packs of our delicious hot cross buns are just €3.50 in-store.

“And if you’re looking for a treat, why not slice into strips, fry and coat in cinnamon sugar to make churros – they taste amazing served with a warm chocolate dipping sauce!”

Luckily, they also shared the recipe, so we can all try these out over the Easter break at home:

The recipe says you’ll need double cream, chocolate, maple syrup, sugar and butter alongside the hot cross buns and cinnamon – and most of us have that stuff in the kitchen already (especially at Easter).

Fans of the supermarket chain loved the idea.

“Seeing this is not going to do anything good for my diet,” one person wrote.

Another one said:

“I’d MURDER a few churros at the moment!”
