Homemade Strawberry Fruit Snacks
Hey y’all! It’s Jaime here with you today! I’m so excited to be here sharing a yummy, kid-friendly recipe with Brianne’s readers! Y’all may already recognize me from the Yummy Eats Roundups I put together each month here at Cupcakes & Kale Chips, but just in case, I’ll introduce myself quickly! I’m the recipe creator & resident crazy lady behind Mom’s Test Kitchen, where we try to answer the hardest question your family can ask – “What the ‘forks’ for dinner?” I’d love for y’all to stop by anytime!
Now let’s get back to some snacking! I don’t know about your kids, but I’ve got a four year old that could live on fruit snacks. Seriously, I have to hide the box when I buy them – which is a very rare occurrence in our house because of her crazy addiction – otherwise, she’ll try to eat every little pouch in the first hour they hit the pantry! So when I found this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I’m happy to say they were a hit & now I just have to keep the fridge stocked with fresh strawberries!
- 1 package fresh strawberries, sliced
- 2-3 Tablespoons sugar
- Preheat the oven to 200°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
- Lay the sliced strawberries out in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with the sugar.
- Cook for 2 - 3 hours or until dehydrated but still chewy.
