Servings: Serves 4
- 1 tablespoon butter , cut into pieces (tablespoons are marked on the wrapper)
- 12 marshmallows
- 2 cups puffed rice cereal , such as Kellogg's Rice Krispies
- 6 fruit roll-ups (pressed dried fruit rounds, 6 inches wide) any brand, any flavor—the ones with fruit-juice tattoos on them are cool, too!
- 6 strips licorice , such as Twizzler's brand, cut in half
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir marshmallows until completely melted. Remove mixture from heat and add cereal. Stir to coat cereal evenly in melted marshmallows.
Roll out the fruit roll-ups. Place a few spoonfuls of the coated cereal onto each fruit roll-up and gather toward one side of roll-up. Press 2 licorice twists onto cereal mix. Wrap and roll the candy and fruit roll-up so that the finished product resembles a sushi roll. Shimmy the licorice twists around so that they are in the center of the roll.
Place a sharp knife into a bowl of very warm water. Cut candy sushi with warm knife into 2-inch "sushi" rolls and arrange pieces on a plate. The candy sushi looks like a big platter of California sushi rolls! This is one trick that makes a tasty treat!
