One of my friends is pregnant and really missing being able to eat sushi, so when my boyfriend and I went over for game night, I brought this:



Like many candy sushi recipes I saw on the internet, I used Rice Crispy treats as the rice, gummy worms and Twizzlers inside, Swedish fish as, well, fish, and green fruit roll-ups as the nori. It was totally my own idea to use orange sugar (from a pack of sugars in Halloween colors) as roe though.  The only hard part really was finding the green fruit roll-ups, but I found some Kroger brand "Alien" ones that unfortunately have white speckles, but eh, close enough.

I brought chop sticks to eat them with, and they were a hit! Totally fun to make, not too difficult, and pretty tasty!

She does get the vegetarian stuff sometimes. But candy > vegetables, imo. Smiley

I made candy sushi for a 4th of July party a few years ago that had less turnout (by far) than expected, so I had tons of leftovers to take to work and man, they were gone within an hour or two. I found those little blue gummy sharks and chopped off their heads when I did it. Cheesy I'd use swedish fish if I did it again tho 'cause I prefer them. Smiley



Love the idea of colored sugar for roe!
