April Foolshi

I just realized we’re only a few days away form April fools day! I have a few things up my sleeve this year. April foolshi is something I’ve had on my list to try to make. There are so many different variations of this I've found on line. I decided to make mine from what I already had in the pantry. It was super easy & turned out pretty yummy too! Yes, I ate it. That’s the best part of making something new   : )
I used a fruit strip (fruit roll up would work great) 4 mini marshmallows (2 green, 2pink, 1 of each color broke in half) , and coconut.

Roll the fruit strip into a circle & press ends together. Then add 2 mini marshmallows to the bottom of the circle.
Put some coconut on top of them & fill up the fruit circle ½ way. Then using the halved marshmallows and a small piece of the fruit strip, press together & stick in the middle of roll.
Fill the rest of the way with coconut.
Throw some coconut on the plate to look like some extra rice. Grab your chop sticks & enjoy!! I will definitely make a plate of these for a little tricky fun on Friday!
