5. Hot Cross Tiramisu

They had us at tiramisu. If you find yourself with leftover hot cross buns, as we so often do, then this is a tasty way to repurpose the surplus and make it into a true Easter-inspired tiramisu recipe.

This is definitely one of the more adult-friendly desserts to enjoy over the long weekend but, if you prefer, you can leave out the alcohol and replace the coffee with cooled hot chocolate to make it a more accessible dessert for the whole family.
