Guide to Hen Party Recipes

Here are some food and cocktail recipies which are ideal for your hen party at home.

Toblerone Chocolate Dipping Sauce

This recipe makes a sumptuously indulgent dipping sauce which goes really well with fresh fruit such as strawberries & grapes

  • 200g Bar of Toblerone
  • 20g Butter
  • 100ml Double Cream

Chop and melt the Toblerone in a heatproof bowl - you can place this over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Leave until it has all melted and the stir in the butter and the cream. Serve with a bowl of Strawberries & grapes for dipping. It may help to provide cocktail sticks to spear the fruit and keep your hands clean. It may not be great for the waistline but it is surely a treat the all of hen party guests will enjoy.

Baked Camembert with Cranberries

An lovely hen party treat, athough perhaps slightly fattening:

  • 1 x box of camembert cheese
  • A handful of dried cranberries
  • Breadsticks to dip!!

Preheat your oven to 180C / 350F / gas 4. Open the box of cheese and unwrap it. Thinly slice off the top skin and discard and then put the cheese back in its wooden container. Place the cranberries on top of the cheese and wrap in a foil parcel. Put the foil parcel on a baking tray and place in the preheated oven for around 25 minutes until melted. Unwrap and get dipping with those breadsticks!
