    Place 1 American cheese slice on each piece of bread. Cut 4 of the remaining American cheese slices in half. Cut cheese halves to cover remaining bread on minion shape; discard remaining cheese.

    Use 1 1/2- to 2-inch round cutter to cut four circles from each of the white Cheddar cheese slices. Place 1 cheese round on top of American cheese to make eye on each.

    Use small knife or kitchen scissors to cut 16 thin strips about 1 inch long of the Fruit by the Foot™ snack. Place strips on both sides of the white cheese circle. Use any remaining Fruit by the Foot™ to cut mouth shapes for sandwiches. Place 1 Fruit Gusher™ snack in center of each eye to make eyeball.

Expert Tips

  • For best results, use larger, slightly oval-shaped sandwich bread from the bakery section of your local grocery store.
  • Use sliced ripe olives in place of the Fruit Gushers™ snack to make the eyes on these sandwiches!
