I made these candy sushi pieces for a friend's sushi party, and I thought I'd post the photos and share how they are made. They are very easy to put together, fun to make with kids, and would be a really fun addition to your dessert offerings for the kids at any Bar/Bat Mitzvah!
I followed these candy sushi directions from Mommy Knows, which are wonderful, because they include photos of how to make these tasty treat! In a nutshell, melt the butter in the microwave, then mix in the mini marshmallows and rice krispies, just like you would when making rice krispie treats. To make the rolls, press the mixture down on some wax paper. Then place gummy worms across the top edge (about an inch or so down from the edge), and roll the sheet up, so that the gummy worms are now in the center of the roll. Trim once you have a full roll of krispie around your worms (because you don't want it to be too thick). Cut into slices, and THEN wrap the edge with fruit-by-the-foot rollups (the instructions say to wrap the roll in a full size fruit rollup, but i wanted the edges to look nice and crisp, so I thought this was a better method). This would look better with green fruit rollups to make it look more like seaweed, but I couldn't find any, so I used the red. For the nigiri, just make little rice cakes from the mixture that are about 2" x 1". Place a swedish fish on top, and wrap with a slim piece of fruit rollup! Easy peasy!
But display is really important to get the full effect. I went to our local supermarket, and asked if I could have the sushi trays to display my candy sushi. I also asked for the little green fake grass, to separate the rolls from the nigiri sushi, just like the real thing. They gave me a strange look, but then handed them over to me for free! Putting the candy in these little sushi trays really makes it look so real! Enjoy!
