Fruit Roll Sushi

I hate to admit it, but I'm just not into raw fish. I just can't make myself do it.  Why should I when I can just roll up rice krispie treats in a fruit roll-up and call it sushi?



I found this recipe in an old cookbook someone gave me called "Recipes for Busy Moms" by Mr. Food.  Anyone remember that guy? I think he's famous for saying "ooh it's SO good!"  And I got to see him in person once, my little claim to fame there.  

So basically you're just making a small batch of krispie treats and rolling them up like so...


Obviously I'm not an experienced sushi roller, and I'm guessing I'm never going to be.  

Here's the recipe:


Ingredients:
1 tbsp butter
12 marshmallows
2 cups crispy toasted rice cereal
4 square fruit roll ups
assorted licorice or gummy worms (I used the latter)

Directions:
In a med saucepan, melt butter over low heat.  Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in cereal.

On a flat surface, unroll the fruit roll ups. Spread equal amounts of cereal mixture over each roll up, covering the entire surface and packing the mixture flat.

Place 3 different colored licorice in center and roll tightly into a log, sealing where the edges meet.  Squeeze rolls gently to secure.  Trim the ends and slice with a serrated knife into 1/2 inch pieces.  Serve, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Julie - I'm not into raw fish either. I don't think they'll ever be a day where I give a try.

I do love this fruit roll sushi though and the best part is that my son (who is allergic to mostly everything) can have these too. I'm making a note to make them soon. They'd be a big hit at the preschool when we have to bring in food. What kid wouldn't like this?
