I am not a sushi eater, and I never will be...unless it's this "sushi"! For April Fool's Day I decided to make a faux sushi. This is so easy, and it's surprisingly tasty.
I got the idea from a great book my friend Christy from The Adventures of Mini-Martha got me last year for my birthday. The book is Fun Stuff - Silly Snacks, and it's bound to become a much-used book when the baby lady gets a little older. It's just loaded with good ideas for really cute food.
So April Fool's everyone, and I hope you enjoy the sushi!
1 bag (10.5 oz) mini marshmallows
3 T. unsalted butter
6 c. rice krispies cereal
green Fruit Roll-Ups or Fruit by the Foot
assorted fruit, diced or cut into slices - I used mangoes, strawberries and kiwi
VERY IMPORTANT: Spray a rubber spatula and a 13 x 9 baking pan with non-stick spray. Combine marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 1-2 minutes, stirring once, until melted. Pour in cereal and stir with the greased rubber spatula to combine. Pour cereal into the prepared baking pan and, using a sheet of waxed paper, press down with fingers until even. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Cut half of he pan into 1 x 2 inch rectangles. Cut small triangles off of each corner and round them out to make an oval shape. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out round shapes in the other half of the baking pan.
Wrap the Roll-Ups around the circle shaped ones, and then put diced fruit in the center. Place sliced fruit length-wise down the oval ones and wrap up with a piece of Fruit Roll-Up.
Enjoy your sushi!
