Kids’ Sushi

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

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • 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.
  • 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.
Packaging idea: Try packaging your "sushi" in a domed container, with a label you design, like this. (We asked to buy a new container at the deli section of the grocery store—the clerk was happy to oblige!)
