How to make Chocolate Candy Sushi
An easy, fun tutorial on how to make candy sushi
A few weeks ago I had a dream about sushi made from chocolate – I seriously thought I had just invented the coolest thing since the "Gangham Style" but as it turns out there were a few creative culinary experts before me who had already started experimenting with the idea of candy sushi. I didn’t want to make my sushi out of candy (gums and tots) and opted to rather use chocolate type ingredients. I must warn you – this is a messy project but in the end it is totally worth it!
3 cups Rice Crispy Cereal
20 large marshmellows
1 TBL spoon butter
Chocolate/ peanut butter spread
Twix/Kit Kat/Flake chocolate (or any “finger” type shape chocolate will do)
1 packet wafer biscuits
First you need to melt your marshmellows with your rice krispies. In a large microwave safe bowl, heat butter and marshmallows at HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Add Rice Krispies cereal and mix until all the cereal is coated.
1.Use a large flat dish and press your Rice Krispy treat mix into the dish in a consistent flat layer.
2.You now need to cut the rice crispy treat mix into large squares, suitable in size to wrap around your chocolate stick. Try and measure how big this should be before you cut – ensure that the square is big enough to wrap around the entire chocolate stick, I left a bit extra just to be safe (you can always cut it off later).
3.Using a butter knife spread chocolate spread or peanut butter over the entire square. This layer will help to bind your sushi together.
4.Then place the chocolate stick approx. 1cm away from the edge of the rice square and wrap the rice around the chocolate. Just like you would roll sushi rice around a crab stick. You should now have a sausage roll type, finger chocolate wrapped in rice crispy treats.
5.Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles over the sushi to make it look like the real deal.
6.Cut you sushi roll into quarters.
1.With the left over rice krispy treat, make wafer and rice crispy treat sandwiches.
2.Cut the sandwiches in half/squares.
3.Add a dollop of chocolate spread/peanut butter to the top
4.Add chocolate sprinkles.
Serve on sushi plates with chopsticks for extra effect.
If you try this out, I would love to see pics of your sushi!
