Warm Brownie Sundae with Mini Choc Brownies

  2. Next, get your Great Temptation Mini Choc Brownies and crumble them into small chunks. 
  3. Heat them up in the microwave for 30 seconds (or longer if desired) 
  4. Start to layer your desert with the warm brownies followed by ice cream and more brownies until you fill up your glass. (Feel free to add more sauce along the way!) 
  5. Top with whipped cream and finish with a maraschino cherry, walnuts, and maybe more sauce! 

Warm Banana bread with your favourite toppings

  1. Heat your Great Temptations Banana Bread in the microwave or oven until warm 
  2. Whilst your bread is warming, start preparing your toppings! Here are some we would recommend: 
  • Blueberries and yogurt 
  • Peanut butter and banana

Double Choc Chip Muffin Bread Pudding with Custard 

If you haven't already tried our Double Choc Chip Muffin Bread Pudding - then this is your sign to do so. Bread pudding is a fantastic way to finish a meal, especially in the colder months. We love making this recipe with our Double Choc Chip muffins topped with fresh or frozen berries and served with lashings of custard. 


  • 3 egg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 Great Temptations muffins
  • ½ cup (or more) fresh or frozen raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries (optional)
  • ½ cup walnuts, almonds, or pecans chopped (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 200.
  2. Crumble up muffins (into approximately 2-2.5 cm pieces). Spread out on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Let them toast up a bit, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  3. Grease a baking dish.
  4. Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and sugar together in the baking dish. Add fruits then add the toasted muffin pieces. Mix the muffins into the milk and fruit mixture, ensuring all muffins get coated. If needed, add extra milk.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, until golden on top and baked through.
  6. Top with custard, whipped cream, or ice cream!
  7. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Slice the mini banana bread into 4 pieces. Dip each slice into the egg mixture, then place in a hot pan. Cook on each side until golden brown.
  8. Plate 4 pieces of banana bread French Toast on a plate, and top each serving with berries, sliced banana, peanut butter, whipped cream, walnuts, or Maple syrup.

Choc swirls cupcakes with custard 

  1. Remove the wrapper of your Great Temptations Choc Swirls and pop it in the microwave for 20-30seconds. 
  2. Whilst your cupcake is warming, get your favourite vanilla custard (or chocolate for a real choc hit!) on the stove to warm through gently 

Warm double choc chip muffins with cream or ice cream

  1. Once you've removed the wrapper, place your cupcakes in the microwave for 30 seconds 
  2. When the muffin is warmed through, pair it with your favourite flavour of ice cream! Whether it's vanilla or chocolate, strawberry, or maybe all three! 
  3. Don't forget your toppings! You could warm through some chocolate or caramel sauce and add some fresh strawberries.
