Gather your ingredients. We used medium-sized store-bought cookies and icing, pretzel sticks (small branches), dried coconut chips (twigs), cinnamon candy (match), and fruit leather in apricot and strawberry (flames.)

Use scissors to cut the fruit leather into flames and add slits so that they will intersect to form a standing fire. Make 1 for each cookie and set aside.

  1. 1. Cross two pretzels (branches) on top of an iced cookie. Lay a third pretzel (branch) on top of the two.
  2. 2. Rest coconut chips (twigs) up agains the last (higher) pretzel (branch.)
  3. 3. From the side, slide the cinnamon candy (match) under the highest pretzel (branch.) The flame will light the twigs which will ignite the larger branches.
  4. 4. Add the “flame.”
