This is a sushi roll fit for young and old, fish-lovers and fish-haters, alike. It’s fun to eat and fun to make, and it’s not bad for eye candy, either.
To make Maeve’s candy sushi, you’ll need butter, marshmallows, Rice Krispies, about a half bag of chocolate chips or a bar of your favorite chocolate, and brightly colored licorice ropes—we prefer Starburst licorice, but Twizzlers Rainbow Twists are sometimes easier to find.
Start by making Rice Krispy treats and melting the chocolate. Lay out a piece of wax paper, approximately 18 inches long. Spread a generous layer of melted chocolate over the wax paper (to reach approximately 12 inches by 6 inches). Then set aside.
Spread Rice Krispy treats on a separate sheet of wax paper, pat to make flat and even.
Cut licorice ropes in half length-wise and lay them in rows on top of the Rice Krispy treat layer. Maeve recommends using 3 to 4 different colors to resemble the fun, colorful parts of sushi rolls.
Roll the Rice Krispy layer together length-wise and pack tightly to eliminate any air pockets. Then remove the Rice Krispies from the wax paper and place on the chocolate sheet.
Like rolling sushi, roll the sheet of wax paper around itself with the chocolate ends coming together. Twist the ends of the wax paper and place in the freezer to set.
After 20 minutes, remove from freezer and remove wax paper. Cut into rolls while frozen for the cleanest cuts, and display on your favorite Asian-inspired serving tray.
