Butter Candle

Homemade butter candle that take less than 5 minutes to make!

Step 1: Get the Stuff

Knob of butter
Sheet of toilet paper

Get the toilet paper and split it in fours. Take one fourth and roll it into a wick. Bend it until you get the right size and tear off the excess.

Step 3: Grease the Wick

Grease the wick with some of the butter. Get a nice coating

Step 4: Shove It in the Butter

Get the toothpick and stick the wick in the middle of the butter

Takes a few seconds for the fire to get bigger! There you have your butter candle! Smells good! Will last about an hour or more depending on how much butter you cut off

    Absolutely brilliant! This is all stuff immediately available to someone in a power outage or on a camping trip and according to the pictures it looks pretty effective. If there was a Zombie preparedness contest right now I would vote for this.
