Ever heard of Laffy Taffy? Air Heads and similar artificial fruit roll-ups sold in the market that you and your kids would always buy and munch on?

Ta-da!

A healthy alternative recipe by Joybx! Healthy and mouth-watering treats that are perfect for small parties, family gatherings or simply just to satisfy your cravings.

Ingredients:
4 cups diced ripe mango (from about 3 large mangoes)

 Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 175ºF and line two rimmed baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.
  • Puree the mango in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  • Divide the purée evenly between the two prepared pans, and using an off-set spatula, spread the purée as flat and as evenly as possible until it’s about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Bake the purée for 3 to 4 hours. (See Kelly’s Notes.) The fruit roll-ups are done when the purée is dry to the touch and pliable. If the bottom side of the roll-ups is still wet after some time, flip the roll-ups over and continue baking them until they are fully dried.
  • Remove the roll-ups from the oven. Place a piece of wax paper on top of the roll-ups and then peel off the wax paper and the roll-ups together. Cut the sheet into long strips and then roll up the strips.

Additional notes:
The total baking time will vary depending on the exact thickness of your fruit roll-ups and the differing temperatures of ovens.

The fruit roll-ups will last for up to 1 week when stored in an air-tight container.

Well then, enjoy!
