Sorry for not posting in a while everyone! I’ve had Spring Break recently, and it’s been hard to post with all of the fun things that I’ve been doing. This week I made Candy Sushi. I mean, sushi itself is amazing… but with candy, I don’t know what I can do to this Japanese treat. It’s a very simple recipe. Your kids will love to make this candy sushi if they crave sugary treats as much as me. 🙂
You can SEE how easy it is to make this candy sushi! Just a few simple steps and you are ready to eat.
First of all, you have to make the Rice-Krispie filling (rice). It is made of Rice-Krispies and melted marshmallows. Then you put the gummy worms in the middle. They are your flavor (fish). Finally, you roll up the creation into a normal sushi roll. You can eat it as a hand roll or cut it into pieces, like sushi.
Since I started my blog, I have slowly started to change from absolutely craving mass amounts of sugar, to just being like… I can’t really explain in words, but if I had to, it would be something like ehhh. This sushi will absolutely be loved by kids all over, but maybe a little younger than I am. I didn’t like the Candy Sushi as much as I expected. It was good and kids will crave it, but it was a little too much for me personally. But that’s just my opinion! So don’t let me deter you from making this recipe.
The first batch of Candy Sushi that I made wasn’t sticky enough. The rolls kept falling apart. I was running out of marshmallows, so I improvised. By using less Rice-Krispies and using a slightly smaller amount of marshmallows, I got the rolls to stick together perfectly.
I am a master with chopsticks! I am like a ninja in disguise wielding two wooden pointy sticks. If you want to add to the sushi effect, you can even make green ginger (fake of course) out of a green Fruit Roll Up. As I explained before, your kids will flat-out LOVE this recipe. But for older people, this may not be quite the best. Their comes a time where sugar becomes less enjoyable. Childhood doesn’t last forever.
And even a kid can think something is too sugary… Like Me! 🙂
Totally fun little treat (candy instead of FISH!)
1 tablespoon butter
10 large marshmallows
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 fruit roll-ups
4 gummy worms
1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies and stir until they are coated with gooey stuff.
2. Lay out two fruit roll-ups on a cutting board, spread 1 cup of the Rice Krispie treats onto each of the roll-ups. Place two gummy worms in the center of each roll, then roll up each one tightly. Use a serrated knife to cut them into rolls. Eat! And use chopsticks!!
