Here are a set of instructions for making a particular kind of Candy Sushi. I've seen other versions that use hostess products (think twinkie) floating around on the internet. Since I can't stand that sort of food (and I want to be able to eat my creation) I came up with this rice-cereal-and-candy version.
Step 1: Ingredients
Things You Will Need:
Puffed Rice Cereal (ie. Rice Krispies)
(I'm sure the store brand will work fine.)
(One 1 lb bag of marshmallows should be more than enough.)
(I bought a pound of butter but didn't use anywhere near that much. You're going to be using the basic rice cereal treat recipe that can be found on marshmallow bags. Go with whatever that recipe asks for.)
Flat "Rollup" Candy (ie. Fruit Roll-Ups)
(Again, store brand is probably a-ok. At first I tried really hard to find roll-ups that were just green, so that they looked the most like real sushi. This turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be, so I ended up using lots of different colors. In the end, I was really happy with the rainbow of sushi I ended up with, because it emphasized the fact that these were candy while still looking a lot like sushi. You may want to be more realistic than me.)
Gummi Worms, Fruits, & Fish
(I tried several kinds of gummi candies for this. Haribo's Clown Fish worked the best, sticking to everything really well. Oversized Swedish Fish didn't work so well. Gummi worms worked well for the insides of the maki. In the future I hope to make more outrageous candy sushi featuring gummy octopi, squid, and other strange gummy candies. Haribo is really good for this.)
Note: no cat necessary for this project.
