A little tip

Don’t be in a hurry to make the buns.

Rest is important so that your buns have the typical smell and aroma of brioche.
Once cooled, you can freeze them so you can have your sweet buns ready for the morning or any other occasions.
You can replace chocolate nuggets with a tablet cut into pieces.

Bonus Ice Cream Idea

For some fresh and original dessert in the summer that will go perfect with your buns you can prepare some vegan icecream  and serve it in the buns previously prepared and cut in half.

Look at it like an Ice Cream Sandwich and trust me your kids will LOVE you for it!.

To make the vegan stracciatella ice cream all you need is

  • 300 ml of vegetable cream to assemble
  • 100 gr of chocolate chips or dark chocolate.

Cut  the chocolate into small pieces, add the vegan cream and mix it with the chocolate.That’s it.

Store it in the fridge.

A little Ice cream Suggestion

To do a Vegan Icecream obviously the easiset way is to use an Ice Cream Maker, but don’t despair, if you don’t have one you can still prepare an exellent ice cream simply by first  mixing all the ingredients required (in this case just the cream) and then  putting them in the freezer.
Remove it every half hour.
After 2-3 hours, add the chocolate chips.
Continue removing another 3 hours, until firm.
