556 calories per serve
1 ⁄2 x 680g unsliced loaf white bread (see note) or a small loaf (such as Bakers Delight Small White Block Loaf)
60g unsalted butter
2 tbsp honey
Melted dark chocolate, to serve
Maraschino cherries, to serve
Chopped unsalted roasted peanuts, to serve
Large and mini marshmallows, to serve
Raspberry ripple ice-cream, to serve
4 Method Steps
Step 1Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Step 2Cut crust off 1 end of the loaf. Reserve crust. Stand loaf upright, cut-side up. Use a small serrated knife to cut out the soft centre of loaf (don’t cut all the way through crust), leaving a 1cm border on the base and sides. Reserve the inside bread
(1 ⁄2 x 680g unsliced loaf white bread (see note) or a small loaf (such as Bakers Delight Small White Block Loaf)). Cut crust off 1 side of loaf to create a ‘window’, leaving a 1cm border on all 3 sides. Cut reserved crust, inside bread and removed side crust into 2cm cubes.
Step 3Combine the butter
(60g unsalted butter) and honey
(2 tbsp honey) in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until melted. Place the loaf upright on prepared tray. Add bread cubes. Place a piece of scrunched up foil inside loaf (this will help keep the shape while it bakes). Brush outside of loaf and bread cubes with butter mixture. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove foil and turn bread cubes. Bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until golden and toasted. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
Step 4Stand loaf upright, cut-side up, on a serving plate. Fill with a few bread cubes. Drizzle over a little chocolate then sprinkle with some peanuts and marshmallows. Top with a scoop of ice-cream
(Raspberry ripple ice-cream, to serve). Repeat layering with bread cubes, chocolate
(Melted dark chocolate, to serve), peanuts
(Chopped unsalted roasted peanuts, to serve), marshmallows and
(Large and mini marshmallows, to serve) ice-cream until filled. Scatter over cherries
(Maraschino cherries, to serve). Serve immediately.
• Have half a loaf left over after a barbecue or party? This is a great way to use it up!
• If you don’t have quite enough bread to make the box, chop what you have, brush with butter mixture, bake, then layer in serving glasses with the toppings.
