Welcome to my Chocolate Buns recipe post! I love buns as they are so easy to whip up! This recipe is also gluten free and dairy free which is really exciting. You don’t get many dairy free chocolate recipes, but by only using cocoa powder you cut out the need for the chocolate itself! These are super tasty and a really great one to make with little ones!! Using the dairy free options makes them slightly more healthy than usual chocolate buns! Enjoy! Let me know if you give this recipe a go by tagging me on socials with #juderiversbakes !

Variation options for Chocolate Buns
There are lots of ways you can change up this recipe, some of my favourites are to ice them with runny icing or cream cheese frosting! You can also add in some chopped apricots or chocolate chips to change up the flavours! You can also change the size of theseby using small bun paper cases rather than muffinpa per casesand i t should make nearer to 16 buns!
