{Candy} Sushi

I kinda forgot I made these & wanted to share them with you! That's right, YOU. Well, finals are finished, Conor is graduated, the Derby has come & gone. I am now fully prepared to reenter the world of the blog. So hold on, my friends.
{Swedish Fish Sushi!}
A few weeks back some friends held a fish fry at their home/art studio & invited us all to come eat, play lawn games, & drink cocktails. We were asked to bring a side dish, so I brought Fannie Farmer's Classic Baked Mac & Cheese {it was pretty much amazing} & made some candy sushi.
{"California" Rolls & a little "Sashimi" in the background}
For the rolls I made Rice Krispie Treats & flattened them out to make a few slabs of "rice." My fillings were Twizzlers, Gummi Worms, & Rips. I had to go the extra mile to find vegan candy because my sister does not eat "horse," aka Gelatin.

{Wrapped in Fruit Rollups}
Roll it all up & you've got yourself a prior-to-being-cut log o' sushi.

{Rolls + Sashimi}
I wrapped mine in Fruit Rollups before cutting for a little more color. Pretty.

For the sashimi I used Swedish Fish & more of the Rips, then wrapped little strips of Fruit Rollups around to hold it all together. Cute, right?
They were my fave & easiest to make.

{All packed up & ready to go!}
They were a huge hit & actually surprisingly tasty.
So no more complaints about not liking sushi, alright?
