Snacks & Treats

Toffee Apples

Toffee Apples for Bonfire Night

This sugary snack is always popular around Halloween and Bonfire night, if you’re in a rush there are so many places to buy them from but for a tastier alternative try making your own with a delicious caramel sauce! If you want to send your candy apples home with your guests, try wrapping up with cellophane and add name tags or stickers for a personal touch!

Pita Chips

I love pita chips – especially when served with hummus, they make such a tasty alternative to your average salt-saturated potato crisp. Place them in snack trays for your guests to scoop up whilst they chat around the bonfire.

One Hand Food!

Food that only needs to be held in one hand is always welcome for outdoor events. It means guests can either hold a warm drink or cutlery in the other hand…no one wants to be fussing over food whilst trying to mingle or watch the display.

Burgers & Hot Dogs

Mini Burgers

So popular at outdoor events and parties, burgers and hot dogs are sure to be a hit with your guests. Serve them up on food trays or cones and make sure you have some paper napkins on hand!

Bowl Food

Most likely the temperature will plummet just before November the 5th, leaving you very chilly on bonfire night! Offer comforting bowl food to warm up your guests! Dishes like Chili Con Carne, macaroni cheese & lasagne are all perfect winter warmers!

Do you have any tasty traditions for bonfire night? For me a toasty hot chocolate is perfect whilst watching the fireworks!
