Candy Campfire

These little campfires were so fun and SO EASY to make! I planned on having the kids at Big Brother’s birthday party make them, but then I forgot about them until the very end of the party…so we just made them at home!

Here’s what you’ll need:  Tootsie Roll Midgees and Airheads (red and orange).


Depending on the size, you’ll probably use about 4 Tootsie Rolls and 2 Airheads (1 orange and 1 red) for each little campfire.


1. Once you’ve unwrapped each piece of candy, you’ll want to put the airheads in the microwave for 10 seconds or less…just to soften them up and make them easier to bend and mold.

2. Tear the airheads and shape them into a flame. Press together.

3. Add a couple Tootsie Rolls and your campfire is ready to rock! If you want it to stick together better, I would suggest putting everything in the microwave for about 5 seconds and then pressing together tightly.



  1. Bah! This is the greatest thing EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. We love camping…how cute would this be for a camping themed birthday party?!
    And it is easy too (you should see me with anything involving food coloring…)
