Edible sparklers: bonfire night food


A post just for UK readers today with some Bonfire Night food and craft ideas ready for the celebrations on Saturday. (Those of you outside the UK wondering what the heck Bonfire Night is can find out more here if you want all the historical and political background) or just know it involves warming round an enormous bonfire, eating sweet and spicy foods and watching a big firework display.

In the past L hasn’t enjoyed Bonfire Night – too many bangs from all the fireworks. So we’re sweetening the night this year with some chocolate treats: edible sparklers.

They’re a super easy peasy Bonfire Night food:  dip a chocolate finger biscuit in some hot water (to just melt a little) then dunk them in a pot of sprinkles. Perfect!

    Love these! I want to remember this next year for when we celebrate Diwali. It’s hard to think of a dessert to serve that will appeal to the kids with more Western tastes and this would be perfect for that.

    We remembered this from last year and are pleased to say it was a great hit with the children that I have this year so is a firm favourite in our Bonfire and Fireworks planning – thank you as always for the inspiration x

    Great idea – I made these edible sparklers with my class last year but I used ‘Mikado’ chocolate fingers as they really look like sparklers with the extra long biscuit handle.

    Thanks for reminding me about these! We tried them many years ago when they first appeared on the ActivityVillage website. Really yum.
