Sushi anyone…Before you say no look more carefully.

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 an great trick to pull on April Fool’s Day.

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 are up to you but basics to have:
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.

Make a your favorite rice krisipies recipe.

While still pliable, grab a handful and mold into your sushi shape. 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.

For the hand rolls I think the larger fruit roll ups would work much better.

Your kids will love making them too.

Hand Roll-should have cut fish in half
Unfortunately, these only stay fresh a day or so.

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!!
