Krispie Treat Flip Flops


We are going to pretend that we're at the beach today and my mini waterfall  that's in the background, is a gorgeous waterfall in Hawaii!  I've gathered some shells and driftwood on my beach towel and we can share some tea as we dream!  

 My tea is being served in my turquoise Fiesta Ware mug, which goes perfectly with my beach towel.


This recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker's Fruity Flip Flops, which can be found here. The folks at Betty Crocker used Cheerios as their base.  I happened to have Rice Krispies cereal on hand and used that instead.  They also used white frosting to ice around the edge of the flip flop, but I didn't have any and thought that the bars were sticky enough to dip the edges into the sprinkles.  One of my granddaughter's and I had so much fun putting this recipe together!  I hope you try this recipe out this summer!

3 tablespoons butter
1 bag (10 oz) miniature marshmallows
5 cups Toasted Rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
3 rolls  Fruit Roll-Ups chewy fruit flavored snacks (any variety)
2 pouches Fruit Gushers fruit flavored snacks (any variety), or use M&M's, fruit snacks, etc.
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.

Put the candy sprinkles in a shallow bowl or pie plate and immediately press candy sprinkles around the edge.  This can be done by dipping the edges in the sprinkles.   Place 1 Fruit Gushers fruit flavored snack at tip of each V shape, or use any small candy.  A dab of frosting would be helpful here, but we didn't use any.
