This recipe is from the Milwaukee Journal, but it's almost exactly the sushi she made and without a recipe.
I loved it!
Gotta do this for my class at the end of the year.
Candy Sushi & Sashimi
Makes about 25 sushi, 10 to 12 sashimi
¼ cup ( ½ stick) butter or margarine, plus more for buttering foil pieces (divided)
1 ½ bags (16 ounces each) marshmallows (about 11 cups)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
5 pieces red licorice
8 to 10 Gummy worms
7 multicolored Fruit Roll-Ups
10 to 12 Gummy fish
Prepare work surface by tearing off three pieces of foil, each about 12 inches long. Generously butter the dull sides.
Melt ¼ cup butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over low heat. When mixture is completely melted, remove from heat and stir in rice cereal. Using a well-buttered spatula, divide rice mixture evenly among foil pieces, flattening each into a rough rectangle. You should have two approximately 6 inches by 9 inches each and one about 6 inches by 5 inches. Let cool slightly.
With a sharp knife, trim longer pieces to 5-inch-by-8-inch rectangles and short piece to 5 inches by 4 inches.
To make sushi: Lay one strip of red licorice on top of a rectangle, next to a 5-inch edge. Trim licorice to fit width. Next to it stretch a Gummy worm. Cut another Gummy worm in half and lay it end to end with the first worm to complete the width. Gently roll up the rice mixture, encasing licorice and Gummy worms. Continue rolling into a log, overlapping by about ¼ inch. Don't fold too far or log will be too thick for Fruit Roll-Up. Trim off. Repeat with remaining rice mixture. Each long rectangle will yield two logs; the short piece will yield one log. Use left-over rice mixture from trimmings to make sashimi.
Open up Fruit Roll-Up, being careful not to tear it. Remove paper coating and encase sushi roll in Roll-Up, gently stretching the Roll-Up if necessary, and overlap Roll-Up edges slightly to seal together. Fruit Roll-Up should stick to itself, but if it doesn't, lightly brush an edge with water to seal. Cut each log into five 1-inch pieces.
To make sashimi: Cut leftover strips of rice mixture into rectangles approximately 1-by-2 inches. Lay a Gummy fish on top of each. Cut remaining Fruit Roll-Ups into ¼-inch strips and wrap a strip around each fish and rice square to form sashimi.
Yummy! I am of Japanese ancestry, but I detest sashimi or sushi...well, if I was given sushi, I take out the raw fish, octopus or whatever raw and eat the rice. Mmmmmmm Candy sushi!
