April Fools Day Sushi
APRIL FOOLS DAY SUSHI
1/4 cup butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups crisped rice cereal
20 to 25 gummy worms
1 to 2 boxes of fruit leather
Grease a 12- by 17-inch baking pan. Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until smooth. Remove mixture from heat and stir in the rice cereal until it's evenly coated. Turn the baking sheet so that the shorter ends are at the top and bottom. Then press the marshmallow mixture on the sheet, distributing it evenly.
Starting at one side and 1 inch up from the lower edge, place gummy worms at the top of the mixture end to end in a horizontal line.
Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
Then stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture. Use the same method for 4 more logs. Slice each log in 1-inch-thick "sushi" rolls and wrap them individually with a strip of fruit leather.
Place neatly on a tray and enjoy!!
These were SOOO much fun to make, and they look pretty close to sushi (at least I think so). However, this is a REALLY sweet treat, definitely more exciting for the kids!! I couldn’t get Darin to eat one, but as soon as I offered them to Matthew and my nieces, they were gone!! Have fun!! For the original recipe click here.
