Introduction: The Sugar Cure

About: Hi my name is Tracy I live in Maine! I am a huge fan of instructables and i hope that my passion will increase more!!

Its an improved version of the Sushi Candy but with more of a twist. Instead of the rice crispy cereal for the base. It is fruity pebbles with a fruit gusher in each of the rolls, and on top it has a gummy bear with the fruit roll ups as the skin on the roll. This is sure to satisfy anyone with a sugar rush.

Step 1: What Is Needed

In this step you will need the following ingredients in order to make this sweet treat:
1.) Marshmallows
2.)Butter/Margarine
3.)Box of Fruity Pebbles
4.)Box of Fruit Gushers
5.)Box of Fruit Roll Ups
6.) Bag of Gummy Bears

Also the utencils needed in order to make the treat:
1.) Saucepan
2.) 9-x-13 pan
3.) Bowl for the cereal mix
4.) Bowl of water

Step 2: Making the Filling and Patties

First, make rice crispie treats according to package directions but replace the rice crispy with fruity pebbles (these instructions can usually be found on marshmallow or rice cereal packaging).

Then arrange your workspace with a large tray (such as a cutting board), your bowl of cereal treat mix, and a bowl of water.

During this whole stage, you want to keep your hands (particularly fingers) constantly moist. The rice cereal is VERY sticky and hard to mold unless you keep this in mind. You don't want your hands too wet, but definitely not too dry either.

Now take about half of the mix and divide it into three sections. Take one section and flatten it out into a long rectangle. Lay gummy worms along the middle of the rectangle. Carefully roll the rectangle up around the worms to create a tube.

Take the other half of the mix and form it into little oval-shaped patties. These will be the bases for our individual pieces.

Clear out space in the refrigerator to store the treats

Step 3: Layout the Decorative Pieces

Lay out as much of the fruit roll-up candy and any gummy bears that you are planning to use for the individual pieces.

Cut the fruit roll-ups into about half inch strips.

(Pull your rice patties one-by-one from the fridge for these next steps and then replace them when finished.)

Stuff the fruit gusher into the roll and make sure it is well covered. Smoosh a single gummy bear onto a rice patty. The stickiness of the rice cereal mix should hold it relatively well. Now take a strip of fruit roll-up and wrap around the bear-cereal creation. Press the roll-up firmly against the rice cereal in particular so that it sticks well.

Step 4: Designing the Rolls

After you've finished decorating all the individual pieces, it's time to move onto the rolls. (I recommend doing these after the pieces because it gives the rolls time to firm up in the fridge.)

Lay out more fruit roll-up sheets. Cut each sheet into approximately 1 inch sections.

Take a single roll out of the fridge. Slice into about 1 inch sections with a knife

Wrap the fruit roll-up around the rolls, making sure to press it into the rice cereal so that it sticks well.

You may want to straighten the ends of the rolls by chopping off the excess.

      I was agreeing with you. "This" is apparently the new way people do it online. *shrug*

    Is this supposed to be a sugar laden snack for someone craving sugar, or is this supposed to help someone overcome a desire for sugar? I am uncertain of the purpose of your Instructable.

      LOL. I think it was a joke. The combination sounds a little gross though I do like those things seperately. Haha.

    It would help me overcome a craving for sugar, that's for sure. I'm tempted to say the sushi aspect would have been more plain with actual rice krispy/marshmallow, though, and perhaps a bit less sickeningly sweet (but I think that's the whole point, so I won't criticise too much).

    I was having problems cutting the fruit roll ups because they kept splitting on me. So, I put them in the freezer as I worked and rotated them and the cold kept them just hard enough to pull off their wrappers efficiently.
