If you’re looking for a stunning, festive dessert to impress, this Bonfire Banoffee Pie is for you! It’s got all the familiar, delicious layers of a traditional Banoffee pie but is topped with a mountain of Epic Snax’s Giant Toastin’ Marshmallows for a little extra indulgence. This recipe is perfect for those moments where you haven’t got much time but want to serve up a dessert that both tastes and looks delicious. It’s no-bake meaning it requires minimal effort, but if you really want that showstopper look, invest in a blowtorch to char that mountain of marshmallows for a gooey, melty centre.

Bonfire Banoffee Pie
- 250 g digestive biscuit
- 200 g unsalted butter melted
- 3-4 large bananas peeled and sliced
- 397 g tinned caramel
- 1 bag Epic Snax Giant Toastin' Marshmallows
- Butter and line the base of a 21cm loose-bottomed fluted or springform cake tin with nonstick baking paper. Put your biscuits into a food processor and whizz until they resemble breadcrumbs. N.B. If you don't have a food processor, place your biscuits in a food bag and use a rolling pin to crush to a fine crumb.
- Add the melted butter and mix until the biscuit crumbs are well coated. Pour into the prepared tin and press into the base and sides, either using your fingers or the back of a spoon. Chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
- Once the biscuit base has set, pour the caramel into the biscuit base and top with your sliced bananas. Chill again for at least one hour.
- Pile Epic Snax's Giant Toastin' Marshmallows on top. Then, you can either use a blowtorch, or preheat your grill to medium-high to toast the marshmallows on top until they're golden and gooey.
- Decorate with indoor sparklers and serve.
