This year, bring the Lag BaOmer spirit indoors! This adorable candy “bon fire” was part of the Katzler family camp fire themed Mishloach Manos. Once I saw it, I knew it would be a “bon”afide good idea for a Lag BaOmer activity.

2 thin pretzel sticks
2 mini marshmallows
1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange and 1 clear hard candy or lollipop(sticks removed)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place the 4 candies/lollipops on a parchment lined cookie sheet, they should be close together.
Bake 4-5 minutes or until candy is melted.
Use the skewer to swirl the colors together and to forming a flame shape.
Place the skewer in the center of the flame and allow to dry.
Place the skewer in the center of the cupcake.
