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!

OK, I've seen lots of candy sushi out there, but this is by far the cutest I've ever seen.  Nicely done!!!

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!
