Complete your theme snacks with edible fire hydrants, a perfect accompaniment to a graham cracker fire truck. With a little shoestring licorice and some imagination, the truck could even fill from the hydrant!

What you will need:

  • Pretzel Rings
  • Fruit Leather. You can also try a marshmallow instead of the fruit leather for a slightly different look for your hydrant.
  • Icing sugar
  • Gummy Life Saver
  • Gumdrop
  • Cheerios

Step 1

Mix icing sugar with water to make a thick paste. Using an edible adhesive like Wilton’s Dab-N-Hold makes this job even easier. You can use this for gluing hydrant & adding nozzles and top of hydrant.

Step 2

Roll fruit leather to form hydrant shape, cut to fit inside of pretzel ring.

Step 3

“Glue” fruit roll to keep it’s shape. Anchor shape by placing pretzel ring on top & bottom of fruit hydrant.

Step 4

Allow to set for 15 – 20 minutes.

Step 5

Complete your hydrant by adding Cheerio nozzle spickets and Life Saver/gumdrop top.
