Candy Sushi

Sushi is one type of Japanese food enjoyed by many all over the world. They are colorful, flavorful and healthy. You can serve sushi at a children’s party. But instead of traditional Japanese sushi, make colorful candy sushi.

Candy sushi uses rice crispy cereal to serve as the sushi rice base. For the seaweed wrapper or nori, use green fruit roll-ups. For the other ingredients, use colorful gummy-type candies. Try making this maki style candy sushi.

1. Prepare your ingredients. You will need:

•    3 tablespoons margarine or butter
•    10 oz of regular marshmallows
•    6 cups of plain rice crispy cereal
•    Baking spray
•    Green Fruit Roll-Ups
•    Various gummy candies

2. At low heat, melt the margarine or butter in a saucepan.

3. Add the marshmallows. Stir well until all the marshmallows melt. Take the saucepan off the heat.

4. Stir in rice crispy cereal. Coat these well with the melted marshmallows.

5. Pour some of the coated cereal unto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Spray the wax paper with baking spray. Make thin rectangular sheets by pressing and forming the coated cereal with a margarine coated spatula. You can also use your hands to press the sticky cereal. But make sure to spray your hands with baking spray.

6. Place two or three different colors of elongated gummy candy along the short side of the flattened cereal. With the help of the wax paper, roll the coated cereal to enclose the gummy candy. Make the roll really tight to make a log.

7. Cut the log with a sharp knife and set aside.

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you use up all the coated cereals.

9. Cut each log into 1” rounds. Wrap each one with a strip of Fruit Roll-Ups, preferably green. Do this for all the candy sushi. When done, arrange in a platter for serving.
There are many types of Japanese sushi. Look at pictures of the different sushi for some inspiration in creating a variety of candy sushi. Use different types of gummy candy and some regular candy to make colorful candy sushi that kids and adults can enjoy.
