Edible campfire (Kid friendly)

EDIBLE CAMPFIRE:

For each fire you will need:

12-inch flour tortilla
red licorice rope
peanuts
peanut butter
fried chinese noodles
tootsie rolls
mini pretzel sticks
white grape juice
hot cocoa powder
candy corn

To make an edible campfire, first clear a space on the table or anywhere there is room, 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, then lay a small handful of fried chinese noodles on top for the kindling.

Lay tootsie roll logs around the peanut butter circle. Next, use mini pretzel sticks as fuel wood to build a tepee 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 tepee. 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, then 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!!!!
