Missing the atmosphere of a November 5th celebration? All’s not lost with these bonfire treats to try at home.
We may not be one of the crowd in the glow of a giant bonfire this year but we can recreate a little of that magic with sparklers and a selection of these Bonfire Night delights…
Hot dogs and spiders
A sausage in a bun is a plain good eat for bonfire night but why not go the whole hog and make chilli dogs instead? Chilli beef, grilled hot dogs, soft buns and tasty toppings – that’s what we’re talking about!
Or if it’s all a bit last minute, these spider dogs are easy to make and look like nothing you’ve served before. Pop them in burger buns as those crazy shapes won’t fit in finger rolls.
Make your own marshmallow
Why make them when they’re so easy to pick up in the supermarket? Glad you asked. Making marshmallows is surprisingly straightforward, super tasty and allows you to experiment with fab flavours (mint choc chip anyone?)
Another good reason is that veggie/vegan marshmallows can be tricky to come by. If you don’t want to use gelatin (which is an animal product), try these instead. Once ready, pop them on a stick and toast or try them in…
Fruity fun times
Sneak in some of their five a day with some yummy, fruity bonfire goodies. The classic toffee apple is given an extra flourish and crunch with some roasted chopped hazelnuts in this recipe.
Or get creative and try one of these 9 different ways to prep scrummy banana boats. We’ve got our eye on the honey and candied ginger option.
Ultimate hot chocolate
Or maybe this white hot chocolate, complete with tasty variations, is more your thing. Top with whipped cream, marshmallows and sprinkles for added indulgence.
And for the grown-ups, a collection of boozy hot chocolates is just the job to warm the cockles on the night. These’ll be handy for the festive season too so bookmark them now.
Bonfire Night might look a bit different this year but these treats will give it some sparkle!
