Edible Sparklers for Bonfire Night

November 5, 2015

You don’t need worry about wearing gloves to eat these sparklers and you don’t need a bucket of water to put them in. However, I’m sure dipping them in a mug of hot chocolate wouldn’t hurt. If you’re short of time this ideas works perfectly well using bought breadsticks in a packet (the grissini type). The biscuit base here will make for a sweeter treat though.

The key to making these is keeping the dough as dry as possible whilst still being able to roll them into stick shapes. If in doubt err on the side of passing a little more flour. To make them look their best roll them pencil-thin if you can, as they do spread a tiny bit in the oven. If you don’t mind a slightly less dainty sparkler-stick though then of course a chunkier base will mean there’s more surface to cover in chocolate.



Makes about 20

  • 200g plain flour (plus extra if dough looks too wet)
  • 60g condensed milk
  • 220g butter, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch of salt if butter is not salted

 For the decoration:

  • 200g chocolate (dark looks best but any kind is fine)
  • Decorations of your choice e.g. edible glitter/sparkle sugar (found in the baking section in most supermarkets now)
  • desiccated coconut
  • crushed nuts
  • roughly crushed biscuits
  • hundreds and thousands

    How adorable are these! Great idea – especially as so many parks won’t let you take real sparklers to their displays any more 😦
