Candy Sushi - a Great Birthday Party Activity & Treat




Introduction: Candy Sushi - a Great Birthday Party Activity & Treat

About: I love to recycle and upcycle.

Original tutorial @:

Candy Sushi is a HUGE hit at our house. It's easy to make.

Step 1: Ingredients Needed

6 cups Rice Krispies® cereal
3 T butter
48 large marshmallows

1 box of Fruit Roll Ups
gummy worms
Swedish Fish

Original tutorial @:

Step 2: Make Rice Krispies Treats

Make a batch of rice cereal treats and use 48 large marshmallows NOT 40 as the recipe generally calls for.

Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture on to cookie sheets coated with cooking spray. It works best if the mixture is only about 1/2 inch thick. Cool.

Step 3: Trim Up the Cereal Treats

Once they had cooled, I trimmed up the slabs of cereal treats into nice neat rectangles and stacked them on wax paper for the party. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for the kids.

Original tutorial @:

Step 4: Rolling

Add candy.

Roll the cereal treats around the candy.

Don’t roll it more than one full roll. You don’t want it to be too thick.

Trim the excess with a sharp knife.

Step 5: Candy Wrap

Once you’ve trimmed the roll, wrap the fruit roll up around it (squeeze). Green fruit roll-ups would be best, but I couldn’t find them. I left the plastic wrap on my roll-up while I applied it to the candy, none of the kids bothered to do this. It works well both ways, just make sure to remove it before cutting.

Step 6: Cut

Now it’s time to cut your candy roll into to cute California roll style sushi. You’ll need a sharp knife to get through the gummy worms and twizzlers in the center.

Step 7: With the Leftovers

They then used any leftovers to make a Nigiri style sushi.

    Very nice. Certainly would be a fun birthday party treat. Thanks for posting.

    Been experimenting as I want to make some of these a a gift for a sushi loving friend at Christmas but...

    I'm struggling with my candy sushi - my marshmallow krispie cake is too sticky and unworkable. Followed your recipe to the letter (could be UK marshmallows are different from US marshmallows). Thinking white chocolate might be better.

    Also what size are your fruit rollups? Here in the UK they're quite narrow (about 1/2 cm) so you need to have a load side by side, which leaves gaps that look rubbish. Are US ones wider and easier to use? (I can mail order some if they are) or would I be better looking for an alternative.

    On the plus side - candy foam prawns (not sure they're available in the US) look fabulous on top of "nigiri".

    I'll keep working on it though. Fab instructable.

    ok. I didn't mean it to be rude, I just wanted to say it as a positive for people. Maybe I should've re-worded it...

    did you know a guy did the same thing in 06' same instructable... hmm not saying you copied him but just saying there is one out there.

    SPIKE CAFFEIN YES //.o X(♫ S⊂R∃AM◯♫ )X

    this is fantastic! great for kids or adult parties! ooohh you could add a White Chocolate drizzle colored with food coloring to look like hot sauce, and have a nougat substance colored green to look like wasabi!

    Great Pics!

    can you replace licorice with something else?

    XD this looks yummy! about a month ago me and my friends had an idea to make desert sushi marshmallows being the rice M&M's or skittles in the middle and fruit by the foot being the seaweed =]

     Hah!  Excellent job, they really do look sushi-like!  And I love the fish-gummi on the nigiri xD 
    I'll have to make this some time, to surprise my roommates (who have been converted to sushi since meeting me :) )
