Candy Sushi

This recipe is originally from Rachael Ray, although I (of course) modified it. The green and red rolls are her recipe, which uses green fruit roll-ups and cherry Twizzlers. I also tried real dried cherries and melted dark chocolate, and orange/cherry/lime Sunkist fruit gel centers with dark chocolate "nori". They are all fun to make, fun to eat and great when you can't eat real (or at least raw) sushi. I made three batches tonight for Jamie... now I just need to figure out how to get them over to her before she heads home!

Candy Sushi

4 large marshmallows
1 T. butter
1/2 c. Rice Krispies cereal
2 green Fruit Roll-ups
1 cherry Twizzler, cut in 1/2

Melt marshmallows and butter in micro or in saucepan until smooth, then stir in cereal. Let cool slightly, divide in 1/2 and spread out on Fruit Roll-ups. Put a Twizzler in the center of each roll and cut to fit. Roll up. Chill slightly, then slice.

If using chocolate for the candy "nori" divide Krispie mixture and spread out on the Fruit Roll-ups paper (makes perfect template). Put dried cherries or other candy of choice in center and roll. Then, roll in melted dark chocolate, transfer to plate and chill slightly in fridge before slicing.
