Edible Campfires

I had to go looking through all of my posts to make sure I haven't talked about this before and I was honestly shocked that I hadn't because this is one of my favourite things to do with girls of any age. Edible campfires are a super easy activity that can be done at any time of the year and only take a few minutes to create. Even though it is pretty straightforward, here are some step-by-step instructions on how to make this delicious and adorable treat. 

Ingredients: Digestive cookies, chocolate icing, Swedish Berries (or other red candies), pretzel sticks, and mini marshmallows.

Step 1: Spread chocolate icing onto your cookie to act as the dirt of the campfire. If it is a little thick that is okay, it will help the other ingredients stay on! 

Step 2: Add the Swedish Berry to the middle of the cookie to act as the fire. Add two or three to make a roaring fire! 

Step 3: Place mini marshmallows around the cookie to act as the rocks around the fire. 

Step 4: Add pretzels to make your wood- you can use a tipi method, a log cabin, or a bit of both! 

And that is it! A simple recipe that I have found Sparks all the way to leaders have enjoyed! 

This snack has always been a hit, let me know if you use it in your unit!
