Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make an edible campfire, first clear a space on the table to build a safe fire.
  2. Lay down a tortilla fire base and wrap a licorice rope safety circle around the tortilla about an inch in from the edge.
  3. Build a peanut rock ring halfway between the safety circle and the center of the fire base.
  4. 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.
  5. Lay Tootsie Roll logs around the peanut butter circle.
  6. 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.
  7. Add another layer of logs, setting them across the corners of the first layer to form a box around the teepee.
  8. Lay a few more pieces of fuel wood across the logs.
  9. Make sure buckets of water (glasses of grape juice) and dirt (hot cocoa powder) are nearby to put out the fire if necessary.
  10. Light the fire by adding candy corn flames.
  11. After the camp director approves the fire, throw dirt on the fire to put it out.
  12. Now, the moment the fire builders have been waiting for: Eat your fires!
