Baking- Bonfire Buns

Baking is something which we love to do. For some reason in the autumn months when the weather is colder there is more opportunities to bake. Jess and I love to bake and try at any opportunity to bake we do it is something most weekends. Today we are going to share with you something which we made last bonfire night for sure this is going to be something which we make again this year. They are super simple and fun to make. So here is the method which we used.


For the Buns

50g butter

100g chocolate chips

3tbsp golden syrup

100g cornflakes/rice crispies

For the icing

65g Soft butter

250g Icing Sugar

1-2 Tbsp Milk

Orange Food Colouring


  1. The first thing you need to do is make the buns. To do this you need to melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup on the hob.
  2. Once they are fully melted pour the cornflakes or rice crispies in. Stir until you have them all coated with the mixture.
  3. Divide the mixture into the cupcake cases and leave to set in the fridge. I think we left them in for an hour or two until they were set
  4. To make the icing mix 65g of soft butter with 250g icing sugar and 1-2 tbsp milk. This is going to give you the icing.
  5. Add orange food colouring you can add as much as you want you will just get a more vibrant orange fire.
  6. If the mixture is too thick add a bit more milk.
  7. Add the icing to the top of the buns stack them high like a fire.
  8. Crumble little bits of flake or any chocolate. Add them to the top of the icing in order to make it look like wood which has not burned yet.

Is there anything which you bake or do specially for bonfire night?
