Mock Sushi

This weekend Mira saw a webpage about making Mock Sushi. Soon, she had me convinced we had to make it.

The process starts with making rice krispy treats with marshmallows.

Patience is key when melting the marshmallows.

We pressed out the rice krispie/marshmallow mixture onto a tray with parchment paper, until it was about a half inch thick. Next Mira laid Gummi Worms in a row as the centers of the rolls.

The edge is rolled up to make a tube and we used a knife to cut the roll loose from the rest of the mix. I placed the rolls on another sheet of parchment paper to cool.

I sliced the rolls into bite sized pieces and we rolled the edge in fruit by the foot. Surprisingly easy to get everything to stick together.

Soon we had a pretty good production line going to make all the sushi.

Mira shows off the completed plates of mock sushi. The whole process took about 45 minutes. Good times.
