Kids' Sushi Recipe

I’ve taken these fun, mock sushi rolls to picnics and parties and served them at home with an Asian dinner. Kids always enjoy the bite-sized treats.—Lorri Reinhardt, Big Bend, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour YIELD:40 servings


  • 10 Fruit Roll-Ups
  • 10 pieces multi-colored licorice
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 5 cups crisp rice cereal


  • 1. Unroll the Fruit Roll-Ups, leaving paper attached. Cut licorice lengthwise into thin strips; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine marshmallows and butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 minutes or until melted, stirring once a minute. Add cereal; stir to coat.
  • 2. Place about 1/2 cup cereal mixture on the edge of each roll-up; place licorice in the center of the mixture. Roll up sushi rolls to about 1-inch diameter. Discard paper. Trim edges of rolls; cut each into four pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 40 pieces.
