There are few after school snacks that are as well loved as the Fruit Roll Up. Even though the retail version has made recent changes to have less sugar and more fruit in them, we're still not that into them. Making them at home is fun, but they're never as neon or fun as the store-bought varities — until now!
Our favorite part of this tutorial is that you don't actually have to use a dehydrator. One silpat and an oven are all you need, well that and some extra ripe fruit! Cindy over at Fix Me A Snack grew tired of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream and has been working every since to create healthy snacks at home that are just as enjoyable and tasty as store bought.
She makes a mean fruit roll up, but many kids aren't into the fruit roll up because it's fruity, they're into them because they're crazy in color! From bright hues to squiggles and shapes, there's all sorts of fun to be had, so Cindy took matters into her own hands with the help of a squeeze bottle. By adding additional colors on top, things came out brightly spotted and are a little more fun!
The sky is the limit on this one and it would even be a great project for kids to help decorate if you're willing to let them lend a hand. Check out the full tutorial over at Fix Me A Snack for all the details to make your own!
