Candy sushi is incredibly simple to do. Essentially, it is nothing more than dressed up rice krispie treats. I used the recipe for Rice Krispie treats right from the Kellogg’s website, although I added 50% more marshmallows to make sure they were gooey enough to mold into the california rolls and nigiri sushi.

For the candy, I went to the bulk store to buy swedish fish, gummy sharks, licorice string, gummy worms. I bought Fruit Roll-ups at the grocery store. There are lots of different types of candy that can work.

Candy sushi is a lot of fun to make and are bright and colourful. The kids loved making them as much as they did eating them. This is great for a child’s birthday party or other fun event.

Place a fruit roll up sheet on the rice krispie squares.

Use cooking spray to grease a cookie sheet and press the Rice Krispie treats evenly across the cookie sheet. I tried to get a large variety of gummy candy to give a big mixture of different types of sushi.

Lay the Fruit Roll-up on the Rice Krispie sheet and cut it out to size. Lay the licorice or gummy worms on the edge and roll up the california roll and cut it into 4 equal size sushi rolls.

Roll up the rice krispie square with the fruit roll up and liquorice.

The kids loved making the nigiri sushi as they were so quick and easy!
