Sushi Candy

From Swedish Fish sushi to bursting boba salmon roe, and of course rolls, this sushi is for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE RICE TREATS:
  • 1 10-ounce package marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
  • 5 cups dry rice cereal
  • FOR THE "SEAWEED" AND "FISH" TOPPINGS:
  • Fruit roll ups, various colors
  • Fruit leather (darker colors look more like seaweed)
  • Swedish Fish candies
  • Various gummy candies
  • Orange bursting boba
  • Old fashioned raspberry licorice
  • Matcha green tea powder
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Candied ginger, for garnish

Steps

  1. Make the rice treats: In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows, butter and salt until melted and smooth. Stir frequently. Add coconut and rice cereal. Stir until everything is fully incorporated.
  2. Pour mixture onto a large parchment-lined baking sheet, and spread into a single layer. We want a very thin layer of rice cereal, about 1/4-inch thick. Let cereal cool slightly.
  3. Make the sushi: Cut/mold rice treat into desired shapes. Use fruit roll ups as nori, and fill rice with assorted gummies. Be creative!
  4. Ball up small amounts of rice treat, and wrap with fruit leather; secure with a fruit roll up. Place tapioca pearls on top of the rice treats. This looks like salmon roe. Place Swedish Fish candy on oval rice treats; wrap with a small fruit roll up strip. This looks like classic sushi.
  5. Mix matcha green tea powder with vanilla frosting to create “wasabi”. Garnish with chocolate sauce for soy sauce and candied ginger. Enjoy!
