As I was getting a few items at Target the other day I saw a book about kids snacks sitting in the Easter aisle. I briefly browsed through it and saw candy sushi.
I know this is not a new phenomenon but something I had not done before. Plus I thought it would be a great trick to pull on April Fool’s Day or HALLOWEEN SUSHI.
My kids happen to enjoy some sushi, mainly California rolls so they, in fact, might be
disappointed to find these in their lunch boxes.
But those folks who might be disgusted by raw fish, will be pleasantly surprised.
Ingredients to Make Candy Sushi
- Rice Cereal
- Fruit roll ups or by the foot–find all green for more realistic looking:)
- Swedish fish, I found multicolored ones
- Other candies, jelly beans, peeps etc.
HOW TO MAKE CANDY SUSHI
Start by making your favorite rice krisipies recipe. Allow to cool only slightly.
While still pliable, grab a handful and mold into your sushi shape.
FOR RICE KRISPIE SUSHI ROLLS
For rolls you may want to add the candy first and then roll them around it.
Use the fruit roll ups as you would the Nori–green seaweed around the rolls.
HOW TO MAKE CANDY SUSHI HAND ROLLS
Your kids will love making them too.
HOW LONG DO CANDY SUSHI STAY FRESH?
Ironically one of my friends emailed me about PEEPSHI .
I had never heard about it but pretty funny use of the peeps that are all around this time of year. Basically sushi made with peeps.
What other fun tricks do you have up your sleeve. Love to share links this week if you want to leave a comment!!
