Candy Sushi

My daughter’s pre-school class has been learning Japanese all year. It’s so cool to hear her speak and she is so proud when she comes home and tells me the new words she has learned. At the school’s Spring Fling Bar-B-Que her class sang “Jesus Loves Me” in Japanese! In Japanese!!! She’s 5 years old! It was very impressive.

So when I saw this post over at Random Thoughts Of A SuperMom! I knew I had to make these for their last Japanese class. Aren’t they adorable?!?!

What you will need:
* Rice Krispy Cereal (6 cups)
* Mini Marshamllows (10 oz. bag)
* Butter (3 Tablespoons)
* Gummy worms
* Fruit roll ups (green)

Make the rice krispy treats according to the package (melt butter, stir in marshmallows until smooth, add cereal and stir).

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and press the rice krispy mixture onto the cookie sheet. Make sure you pack it down fairly well and don’t leave any holes.

Let it cool a little while.

Lay the gummy worms about an inch from the edge.

Roll the Rice Krispy treat up until the gummy worms are completely covered. Cut along the side of the “tube” with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. (I use my pizza cutter all the time!)

Shape it with your hands so that it’s not falling apart.

Now wrap the long tube with a fruit roll. I had a hard time finding the small Fruit By The Foot that was green so I had to use sheets of the fruit roll ups. It worked great! (and green was easy to find).

Cut into 1 inch pieces.

Enjoy! Or should I say Tanoshimu!
