Picture of Dessert Sushi
Samanayrs is a unique traditional art pet adoptable with it's own site and forums. In celebration of Valentines Day (2012) they hosted a chocolate cooking contest. Judged for creativity, deliciousness, and effort each entry must use chocolate as a main ingredient and include a card somewhere in the image with the creator's username. 

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)
Coconut Milk
Vanilla Extract
Almond Paste
Lemon Juice
Food Coloring

Non-food stuff to have:
Rice cooker (optional; pot and stove work, too)
Sushi Mat
1-Gal Zip-top bag
Parchment Paper (essential!)
Smaller zip-top bag
Pinch bowls for holding cut fruit
Rolling Pin
Cutting Board
Knives, Peelers, Mandolin

Step 1: Wash and Prep Rice

The first thing to do is to wash the rice to remove the excess starch.

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!

This is great! I'm going to do this, only I'm going to substitute the rice for Rice Crispies treats. ^_^
That was my thought too when I saw that it was rice. Exceptional would be Rice Crispies because it would be sweet and not a dry texture like "Rice" would have. Great -able though. :)
haha Great minds think alike. :-p

Thanks for posting this. What a great idea.

What about using a chilled cookie sheet as a work surface? Do you think it would make working with the chocolate easier?

That would work well, actually. Great idea!

Love it. But personally, I don't like eating rice and fruit together ><

The rice is sweetened. Think of it more like rice pudding with a better texture. It's not like dinner rice with sweet stuff on top. :)

Very nice. I've seen various dessert sushis and this is the first that I've seen do a nice job of actually using sushi rice; the coconut milk is inspired. I imagine they taste great!

What a great idea. We are definately going to do this the next time we entertain.

I'd be tempted to make and use rice krispy treats in place of the rice. Yum! Thanks for sharing.
What can I say besides AWESOME!

Totally, Totally, Totally Awesome! The kids and I have something new to try! There's a whole food genre about making "dinner" look like "dessert" and vice versa. For instance - making ice cream look like meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I do remember making Sushi using fruit-leather and gummi-fruit and marshmallow-bunnies or something.... Thanks for this one - I'll add it to my list of cool things to do.

I just might make this if I can find all the items needed. It would be a great way for my father to have sushi since he has a fish allergy.
awesome Idea!
Definitely some of the most wonderful dessert sushi I've ever seen!
