Fun Sweet “Sushi” to Make for Kids

Fun Sushi to Make for Kids

Yuta, Yoji and Miki made this awesome “sushi” for a school birthday party. It’s made out of homemade rice crispy treats, gummy fish and fruit roll-ups. How cute and cool!

The one question everyone’s asking is: How did they get the rice crispy treats to be soooo pure white? Any ideas? If so, please let us know in the comments below! (I also wonder where you get the faux lacquer boxes?)

Thanks!

    I am thinking that they rolled the treats in powedered sugar while still stacky and before wrapping in the fruit roll ups!

    I really like this idea, though. I’m might steal it!

    they probably used a special kind of rice, that is actually naturally pure white. This is quite a common rice, but, is rarely used in sweets etc.

    I made it with puffed rice cereal and it was very white. I’ll post some photos when I have a chance!

    PS The tricky part was keeping it all from sticking to your hands while you’re shaping the “sushi”. It might sound strange, but it’s easier to work with if you “grease” your hands with a little oil or butter beforehand.

    […] This rendition of candy sushi (also using Rice Krispies and fruit rolls) is fit for a chic evening out. Placing the sophisticated rolls in a black lacquer steps up the fancy. (Recipe) […]
