Get everyone to build this edible bonfire cake. This clever show stopper uses crispy mint fingers for logs and fondant for flames. You can make the sponge cake in advance and finish it off the day before your party.
Hotdogs meet their match with this tasty meatball all American classic. Get plenty of wipes to the ready, it’s not called a sloppy Joe for fun! If you’ve never tried our jumbo hot dog buns before, now is the time.
Dip a crisp apple in toffee and leave to set. Choose from one of our 57 varieties of crisp apples from a juicy Braeburn to a full on flavour cox. I find that these are best made in the morning before your party. It's handy to use little squares of paper to sit the coated apples on and that make them easy to lift and carry away.
Whip up these simple cakes with the kids then get creative with some ready to roll icing.
Take popcorn to the next level, maple syrup and pecan nuts are the perfect match. If you want to pop corn from scratch, use a sturdy saucepan, ideally with a heatproof glass fitted lid, so as you you see the corn as it swells and pops.
A piping hot burger on a cold autumn night can't be beat. If you want to serve with chunky chips, fill paper bags and for your 'chip shop' style supper. If you have smaller hands to deal with shape the mix into minis before you start to cook them.
Sweet sticky and totally easy to make: This recipe can be made a few days before Bonfire Night. You just need to keep it covered in cling film and then before the party cut a square and pass them round.
