Recipes: Easy Bonfire Night Eats


We’re getting together as a family this bonfire night to enjoy some fireworks and some food at my sister’s new house. She previously lived in a flat, so didn’t have any space to host an outdoor display, but she now has a large garden, so we’re all looking forward to really getting to enjoy this firework season together. Here are just a couple of super simple recipes for you to whip up if you’re hosting or attending a display of your own. Recipes adapted from BBC Good Food.

  • 200g white chocolate
  • 200g milk chocolate

  1. Melt the white chocolate and milk chocolate in separate bowls. While leaving to cool slightly, line a 20cm x 30cm baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Pour three quarters of each chocolate into the baking tray, swirling together to create a marbled effect. Sprinkle the toffee popcorn all over the top.
  3. Drizzle over the remaining chocolate and pop in the fridge until set. When you’re ready to serve, break or cut into pieces.
