I plan Bonfire Night like other people plan birthdays or Christmas. From mittens, lined boots, sparklers, toffee apples, flasks of spiced rum- to the exhilaration of skipping down gloomy streets leading to fizzing municipal firework displays. Pavements spilling out with kids who are allowed to stay up late and grown ups cupping hot dogs and pies in gloved hands instead of having to cook dinner. And school night bonfire nights? Well they are the best nights of all!
So when Baileys asked me to collaborate on whipping them up a bonfire night recipe I was all in. November 5th is calling out for toasted marshmallows with a fire cracking flair. This isn’t just marshmallows for soaking up the last embers of the bonfire - this recipe is the Catherine wheel, the glitter flair and the rockets too. My most show-stopping S'more to date.
So here's how to make your bonfire night go with a bang:
Bailey’s Bonfire S’more
You will need:
Bailey’s Original Irish Cream Marshmallow - available to buy online here
Bailey’s Original ganache
Spiced Ginger Biscuit
70% dark chocolate shard
Hazelnut Caramel Fireworks
Bailey’s Original ganache:
Makes 275g of ganache
Place the chocolate in a large bowl
Combine the cream and Baileys together in a medium saucepan. Gently heat until simmering.
Remove from heat and pour the cream mixture slowly over the chocolate. Stir with a spatula until fully combined and the ganache is smooth and glossy.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes before using.
First chop your chocolate into large shards. Place a large teaspoon of Bailey’s Original ganache onto a thin spiced ginger biscuit. Toast your Bailey's Original Irish cream marshmallow over a bonfire/flame/ hob and squish over the ganache before placing a shard of chocolate on top and sandwiching it with a final biscuit.
