Whether you need the perfect snack or meal on the move, our Bonfire Night picnic treats and sharers mean you'll never have to buy a soggy sausage roll again.
Bonfire Night just wouldn't be the same without a spectacular spread of treats to snack on with the family. We've got plenty of sweet and savoury recipes to rustle up for a quick bite before you pop out, or to feast on whilst watching the fireworks from hot dogs to toffee apples.
Want to feed hungry hordes but struggling to keep them inside? Create hot dog-style beanburger puffs with healthier borlotti beans, full of slow-release energy and delicious hot or cold. Traditional baked spuds are a staple this time of year, so prepare our Bonfire Night baked potatoes by scooping out the middle and mixing with cheese, bacon and parsley. Return to their shells, cook a little longer then wrap in foil to keep warm until you're ready to tuck in. Just don't forget the spoons!
Our favourite meals on the move...
If you're heading out to 'ooh' and 'ahh' along with the masses or just venturing out into the back garden, make sure you have some warming bonfire bread, maybe a few cheesy sausage rolls and plenty of easy-to-handle sweet treats. Our favourites include campfire cupcakes topped with mini marshmallows, or you can hand out date & apple squares for a natural energy boost.
Our snack pack favourites...
If you have a penchant for spiced parkin or love traditional toffee, complete your Bonfire Night with a few classics. As much fun to make as they are to eat, traditional toffee apples will always have their place on Fireworks Night while modern twists such as toffee apple pops and toffee popcorn bark will travel easily and last you all night.
Our favourite sweet treats...
If you haven't far to go before the show, cook up a storm and just before you set off, hand out something to keep everyone toasty warm. Hot dogs are always popular and sealing them inside big flour tortillas makes them easier to eat on the go. Warming your mitts around a bonfire? Prepare a simple chocolate fondue and when you're ready, thread your marshmallows onto skewers, toast them over the flames and get dipping!
Quick and easy
No time to hang around? It's amazing what you can do with five ingredients and less than half an hour. If you're looking for more last-minute belly fillers before running out the door, garlic bacon butties and simple sweet chilli hot dogs are easy to rustle up and will warm everyone from the inside out.
