If you can’t quite wrap your brain around eating raw fish and seaweed, approach the sushi craze with some sweetness. Instead of seaweed, rice, avocado and raw tuna, this sushi involves some childhood favorites: Rice Krispies, Fruit Roll-Ups, Twizzlers and gummy worms. Great for parties, a creative way to spend a Saturday afternoon or for pretending you’re a Nobu champ, this recipe is worth ruining your appetite for dinner.

Candy Sushi


Total time: 30 minutes

Servings: 5

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Rice Krispies:

1. Melt butter and marshmallows in a bowl in the microwave for 3 minutes (cooking times may vary). Stir until smooth.
2. Add Rice Krispies to bowl and mix until combined.

1. Lay a Twizzler and a gummy worm on a slab of Rice Krispies.
2. Roll Rice Krispies tightly around candy without overlapping the roll. Trim excess with a knife.

4. Cut rolls into pieces with a very sharp knife.
