This time for April Fool's Day, I'm flashing back to Fushi!
FAKE + SUSHI = FUSHI!
My original post is here.
I must have made thousands of those treats over the years because for a long time I was a baking counselor in a day camp! So one year we decided to change it up a bit and make Fake Sushi, we called it Fushi. It's fun to make, fun to eat and it's really easy. Not to mention sticky. All you need is marshmallows, butter, Rice Krispies cereal, green fruit rollups or any color really, and some Twizzlers pull-n-peel candy, gummy worms, you can get as creative as you like. It's a fun, gooey mess, but the kids love it! And so did one or two adults :)

Makes 4 to 5 dozen
1/4 cup butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups crisped rice cereal
20 to 25 gummy worms (or Twizzler's Pull-n-Peel)
1 to 2 boxes fruit leather
Grease a 12- by 17-inch baking sheet. Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until smooth.
Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the rice cereal until it's evenly coated. Turn the baking sheet so that the shorter ends are at the top and bottom. Then press the marshmallow mixture onto the sheet, distributing it evenly.
Starting at one side an inch up from the lower edge, place gummy worms atop the mixture end to end in a horizontal line. Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
Then stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture. Use the same method to form 4 more logs. Slice each log into 1-inch-thick "sushi" rolls and wrap them individually with a strip of fruit leather. Garnish with julienne slices of dried apricots!
