If you need me you'll find me over here, brimming with excitement that I’m now part of the Bailey’s Treat Collective. Baileys have a knack for creating the most decadent of desserts whipped, drizzled and just oozing with Irish cream. Have a little peek at their enviable Instagram page to really get you reaching for the bottle. If you haven’t tried Baileys in anything other then a glass then let me and the rest of the Treat Collective lure you in. From punchy coldbrew coffees and delicate patisserie to my showstopping s’more. I’ll be bringing you seasonal recipes spiked with Baileys from now until summer.
So... If autumn is my favourite time of year- well, Bonfire Night has to be my favourite night. 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 said "Ohmygodyesohyesohyes"
They whisked me off to a swanky studio kitchen, plied me with Baileys, styled my hair and let a make up artist loose on me ( just look at that lipstick!) Baileys are, (quite justifiably) my new favourite people right now. And 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.
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.
To give your Bailey's Bonfire S’more a whizz, zoom, dazzle top with a sparkler and get ready to shimmer.
My limited edition Baileys marshmallows are now available exclusively from our online shop. The unexpected way to enjoy your favourite tipple this winter!
