  • pinch the middle of the oval shape to make a foot shape
  • unroll the fruit roll up
  • cut 2-3 inch long (narrow) strips out of the fruit roll ups

  • Pull the paper backing off and lay 2 of your long/narrow strips into a V pattern at the wide end of the flip-flop shape
  • add an M&M by pressing it into the center of the V
  • Repeat with all of the ovals shapes
  • you should end up with about 12 flip-flops

Notes

*try to work while the rice cereal/marshmallow mixture is still warm. Once the mixture cools, it starts to harden and you won’t be able to use the melted marshmallow as your glue.

Storing:

These are best when served the day of making them. The fruit roll ups and the marshmallow will start to harden when exposed to air. If you want to make them in advance, store them in an airtight container at room temperature
