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:
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
- 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.
- Immediately stir in cereal until evenly coated. Press mixture evenly in pan with greased hands. Cool 15 minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
