2. Bonfire night toffee apples

Try your hand at toffee apples with a twist. Dip the apples in toffee then in crushed ginger biscuits and mini sugar stars, or ditch the toffee altogether and dunk in melted milk chocolate (controversial, but good).

3. Pumpkin seed, black treacle and ginger squares

Fudgy dried apricots and toasted pumpkin seeds bring a sophisticated edge to this dark and delicious parkin. It will stay irresistibly moist for a good few days, so you can make it ahead of time.

7. Apple, maple and cinnamon muffins

Fair-trade cinnamon, Canadian maple syrup, natural yogurt and fresh apple chunks. Mmm. If you make them ahead of time, pop them in the microwave for 20 seconds (without the icing sugar topping) and they’ll smell freshly baked.
