Scotland may already be notorious for “unhealthy” food options (I refer of course, to the infamous Deep Fried Mar Bar) but one Edinburgh chef has taken Scottish dessert to a whole new level.

Simon Robertson – head chef at Edinburgh hotel and pub The Fiddler’s Elbow – has created “Braveheart Butter Balls” – frozen balls of butter deep-fried in an Irn-Bru batter.

Despite being dubbed “a heart attack on a plate”, the quirky patriot believes that the treat isn’t quite as calorific as people might expect, as the balls are actually hollow.

Along with the deep-fried treat, the balls are also served with Irn-Bru ice cream, giving the traditionally American dish of butter balls a decidedly Scottish twist.
