Make it / Eat it: Candy Sushi

Who says you shouldn’t play with your food? You can make your own candy sushi: it’s fun, easy and tasty too! Check out this list of ingredients and simple instructions:

Things You’ll Need:

  • 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 20 Jet-puffed marshmallows
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 10 chewy fruit snack sheets (like Fruit by the Foot or Fruit Roll-Ups)
  • 40 bite-sized fish-shaped chewy fruit snacks
  • Any other decorative candy you’d like to use, like licorice (pull and peel works well) or additional gummies, or strawberry, caramel or chocolate syrup (for sauces).
  • Sharp knife

How to Make it:

  1. Microwave butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 45 sec. or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 1 min. 30 sec. or until marshmallows puff, stirring every 45 sec. until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in cereal.
  2. Unroll fruit snack sheets. Press 3 Tbsp. cereal mixture onto each sheet to within 1/2 inch of edge. Place 4 fish or a few licorice strips down center of each sheet; roll up tightly.
  3. Cut each roll-up into 4 pieces. Use a sharp knife (carefully!). It helps if you run it under hot water to keep it from getting too sticky (you will get sticky).


  • For some real fun, serve with chopsticks and eat it the traditional way!
  • Use some strawberry, caramel, or chocolate syrup like soy sauce.
  • You can also use stuck-together licorice in place of the fruit roll-up.
  • If you don’t want to make Rice Krispies Treats, you can use marshmallow or mini-doughnuts instead.
