Bonfire night is one of the best nights this season, which serves as one of the final major festivities before Christmas. With festivities being cancelled due to Covid-19, 2021 is the best year to be surrounded by family and friends whether it’s indoor or outdoor.
We love celebrations that bring families and friends together – and while we love watching fireworks together around a blazing fire, we also love bonfire night food! On a cold winter night, we’ve got some fantastic heart-warming meals to keep you warm and cosy. These Bonfire Night delicacies, in our opinion, are best enjoyed while warming your hands over a bonfire and wrapped in scarves.
Whether you’re watching the firework celebrations from your bedroom window, heading to your local bonfire or lighting sparklers in your garden, ignite your tastebuds with these Bonfire Night recipes to try with family and friends.

Sticky Cider Onion Hot Dogs
1 tbsp olive oil
2 finely sliced onions
100ml dry cider
1 tbsp dark brown soft sugar
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp mayonnaise
4 brioche hot dog buns
Melt the butter in a pan with olive oil. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and fry for 25-30 mins or until caramelised. Add the cider and simmer until reduced. Stir in the sugar and vinegar. Mix the mustard with the mayonnaise. Cook the sausages following pack instructions. Split the hot dog buns and fill each with a sausage. Top with the onions and the mustard-mayo.
4 digestive biscuits
120g salted caramel sauce
150g 70% dark chocolate (broken into small pieces)
200ml double cream
120g caster sugar
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
Put the biscuits into a bowl and bash with a rolling pin into fine rubble. Divide between six small serving glasses and spoon over the salted caramel sauce.
Melt the chocolate with a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl above a pan of gently simmering water. Once melted, remove from the pan and leave to cool.
Use electric beaters to whisk the cream to soft peaks.
Add the egg yolks into the chocolate and stir until smooth. Add 1/4 of the cream and beat until fully combined. Tip in the remaining cream and fold together. Divide between the glasses and chill for 30 minutes to firm up. Remove from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before serving.
Once the pots have been set, put the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar into a heatproof mixing bowl and use electric beaters to whisk together. Put over a pan of gently simmering water and whisk continuously for 6-8 minutes until the sugar has completely dissolved and the egg whites have tripled in volume into a bright, glossy consistency. Remove from the heat and continue to whisk for 4-5 minutes until the mixture holds soft peaks.
Spoon the marshmallow over the chocolate pots and carefully blowtorch the tops until golden (you could also do this under a grill if the glasses are heatproof). Serve immediately.
