For this contest AmazonDreamer decided to make chocolate sushi. It's creative, takes a good amount of effort, and ended up delicious! She does not have an instructables account of her own, however, so I am recording the creation process here in her stead.
Food you will need:
Short Grain (Sushi) Rice
Fruit (Kiwi, Strawberry, Rasberry, Watermelon, Apples, and Cantelope)
Semisweet Chocolate Chips
Agave Syrup (or Corn Syrup)
Non-food stuff to have:
Rice cooker (optional; pot and stove work, too)
1-Gal Zip-top bag
Parchment Paper (essential!)
Smaller zip-top bag
Pinch bowls for holding cut fruit
Knives, Peelers, Mandolin
Step 1: Wash and Prep Rice
Pour rice into a large-ish bowl, then pour water over it. Scrub it between your hands, drain the water, and re-rinse until the water runs clean again.
Let dry for an hour, then cook according to rice/rice cooker directions!
Step 2: Make Modelling Chocolate
8 oz. Chocolate chips melted in the microwave
Pour your chips in a bowl that fits them and microwave for about a minute, then 15 second intervals after that until almost completely melted. Pull them when you have a few small unmelted bits left and stir to finish. It's better to under-cook them and melt them by stirring vigorously than to burn your chocolate.
Add 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp Agave (or corn) Syrup
Stir to combine and using a spatula get the resulting mixture into a zip-top bag and stash in the refrigerator to set. Minimum one hour, we let it sit overnight.
