This Bonfire Night Popcorn Bark makes a great treat to enjoy when you are standing watching the fireworks. As you eat the chocolate the popping candy will make little explosions in your mouth! Do you call it Bonfire Night or Firework Night? I kind of use both! Anyway, finger foods are a must on firework night, and that includes dessert! I’m all for traditional bonfire night foods such as jacket potatoes and bangers, but this is an alternative recipe. I think once you’ve tried it you’ll be making this fun idea all the time.
PIN for later!
Unlike my very popular Bonfire Night Cupcakes (which look like mini bonfires), these homemade chocolate treats are good for any occasion. I could call them Chocolates Slabs but I decided bark sounds more ‘Autumny’. I think if you cut them with a knife, you call them slabs and if you break them by hand you get a more rustic ‘bark’. Well, that’s my guess anyway.
TOP TIP: Break at room temperature for more of a rustic bark.
I think it’s nice to hand them round on something wooden. A small cutting board perhaps.
I don’t think you’ll need tissues as you’d usually be standing outside with chilly fingers. They’ll get gobbled down pretty quickly too, if my family are anything to go by!
I found these are popular with adults and children, a real party pleaser! Happy Bonfire (or Firework) Night!! X
How to make Bonfire Night Popcorn Bark
- 200g milk chocolate
- 200g white chocolate
- 50g toffee popcorn
- 2Tbsp popping candy
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Melt the two chocolate types separately on low heat using a bain-marie.
- Pour out both chocolates together, roughly swirling together. Hold back a little of both chocolates tho’.
- Sprinkle over the caramel popcorn.
- Drizzle the remaining chocolate over the popcorn pieces.
- Sprinkle over the popping candy.
- Leave to set overnight, or for a few hours in the fridge.
- Break into chunks before serving.
TOP TIP: Only add the popping candy after the chocolate has cooled off. You need the chocolate bark to be tacky, so they stick, but not warm so as to prematurely pop the candy!
