Candy Sushi

I will be posting more pics soon!


1/4 cup butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups crisped rice cereal
20 to 25 gummy worms
1 to 2 boxes of fruit leather
12- by 17-inch baking sheet
2-quart saucepan


Grease a 12- by 17-inch baking pan.
Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.
Add the marshmallows and stir until smooth.
Remove mixture from heat and stir in the rice cereal until it's evenly coated.
Turn the baking sheet so that the shorter ends are at the top and bottom. Then press the marshmallow mixture on the sheet, distributing it evenly.
Starting at one side and 1 inch up from the lower edge, place gummy worms atop the mixture end to end in a horizontal line.
Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
Then stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture. Use the same method for 4 more logs.
Slice each log in 1-inch-thick "sushi" rolls and wrap them individually with a strip of fruit leather.

These are so much fun to make with kids! There are so many variations to this fruit sushi! Imagine all the candy possibilities! We used colored sugar sprinkles to look like Roe, a melted green starburst as wasabi and red frosting as eel sauce. Too cute!
