My grandkids love these type of fruit snacks but I don’t like all the food additives. These snacks are easy to make but they take a while to cook. I usually double or triple the recipe but I have lots of grandkids. They love these fruit snacks. Blueberry and strawberry jerky snacks are their favorites!
