Directions See How It's Made
- To make an edible campfire, first clear a space on the table to build a safe fire.
- Lay down a tortilla fire base and wrap a licorice rope safety circle around the tortilla about an inch in from the edge.
- Build a peanut rock ring halfway between the safety circle and the center of the fire base.
- Spread a circle of peanut butter in the center of the fire base; lay a small handful of fried Chinese noodles on top for kindling.
- Lay Tootsie Roll logs around the peanut butter circle.
- Use mini pretzel sticks as fuel wood to build a teepee inside the ring of logs and over the kindling, sticking the pretzels into the peanut butter at a 45-degree angle.
- Add another layer of logs, setting them across the corners of the first layer to form a box around the teepee.
- Lay a few more pieces of fuel wood across the logs.
- Make sure buckets of water (glasses of grape juice) and dirt (hot cocoa powder) are nearby to put out the fire if necessary.
- Light the fire by adding candy corn flames.
- After the camp director approves the fire, throw dirt on the fire to put it out.
- Now, the moment the fire builders have been waiting for: Eat your fires!
