Step 5: Mise en Place

Now you're just about ready to construct the sushi!

Cut your strawberries, kiwi, and cantelope into long, thin strips for inclusion in the roll. Stage these pieces in small bowls. Cut the watermelon into slabs that are about the same size as the slab you'd find on hand-formed sushi.

Take your modelling chocolate out of the fridge and break into one large piece and one smaller piece. For each bit of the chocolate, knead it a bit to make it pliable, then roll it between pieces of parchment paper until you have a thin, squarish sheet. Stash chocolate in the freezer for a minute or two if it starts to get too warm to work with, and stash it in the freezer for about 5 minutes before making the final roll to make sure it'll behave properly.

To make the sushi rice properly sweet, add about 1/2 cup coconut milk and a drop of vanilla extract to approximately 2 cups of (cooked) sushi rice. This actually makes waaaaay more rice than you'll need, so feel free to reduce the amounts. 
Add agave syrup to taste for a final dash of sweetness.

<p>Not that hard to make cause it has the full intructions.</p>
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 &quot;Rice&quot; would have. Great -able though. :)
haha Great minds think alike. :-p
Elegant, beautiful and creative!! Great job!! Can't wait to try them.
Thanks for posting this. What a great idea.<br><br>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 &gt;&lt;
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 &quot;dinner&quot; look like &quot;dessert&quot; 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.
they look beautiful :)
Yummies. I think I like these better then the fruit rollup ones.
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!
Beautiful. Thank you very much for sharing.
