Fabulously Fruity Flip Flops

Comments (0)

With summer here, bonfires, cookouts, and sleepovers are sure to follow.  While flip flops are one of the worst shoes to wear in the summer, they can be a tasty and fun treat for the parties and a great after school snack for the kids.  Upon perusing Pinterest, we came across a recipe for fruity flip-flops.  I mean who doesn’t love marshmallows and cereal combination goodies?!  The recipe for these yummy and fashionable treats from Betty Crocker is as follows:

 

Ingredients

3 tablespoons butter

1 bag (10 oz) miniature marshmallows

5 cups Cheerios™ cereal

3 rolls Betty Crocker™ Fruit Roll-Ups™ chewy fruit flavored snacks (any variety)

2 pouches Betty Crocker™ Fruit Gushers™ fruit flavored snacks (any variety)

Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting

Betty Crocker™ colored candy sprinkles

Directions

  1. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large microwaveable bowl, microwave butter and marshmallows uncovered on High about 2 minutes, stirring after each minute, until mixture is smooth.
  2. Immediately stir in cereal until evenly coated. Press mixture evenly in pan with greased hands. Cool 15 minutes.
  3. Cut into 4 rows by 3 rows to make 12 rectangles. Shape rectangles into flip-flop shapes, making 6 pairs total. Unroll and remove paper from Fruit Roll-Ups fruit flavored snacks. Cut the fruit flavored snacks into 4 strips—each 4 ¾ in long. Fold each strip in half lengthwise. Fold the strip into a v-shape. Press on bar to make flip-flop straps.
  4. Lightly frost each flip-flop around cut sides; immediately press candy sprinkles on frosting. Place 1 Fruit Gushers fruit flavored snack at tip of each V shape, attaching with small amount of frosting.

Just remember to keep flip flops on the menu and not on your feet for long summer days of walking or exercising.  But - do wear sandals when on the beach, around the pool, and in the gym to protect against fungus and bacteria! If you want to get fitted for podiatry approved sandals - that are stylish and supportive rather than yummy- stop by the office at 10 Heartland Drive Suite B in Bloomington.
