Hey everybody! We hope you’ve had a great weekend and that your week is off to a great start! We booked a trip for next month to the Outerbanks, so if you know of any good bakeries there, let us know! We’re excited and we’ve spent the weekend trying to buy a new wardrobe before we go!
Anyone else love fruit roll-ups as a kid? We did! We remember in school kids used to bring fruit roll-ups and gushers to lunch. They’d roll the gushers up in the fruit roll-ups and then eat it. Ya, we wish we could still get away with eating the diabetes inducing “lunch”, but unfortunately, that’d be frowned upon. I guess, we’ll just have to keep eating our salads….
If you’ve got fond memories like us, then we have the perfect dessert for you: Dessert Sushi! Now you may be thinking that rice krispie’s rolled up in fruit roll ups with sour gummy worms in the middle is surely a child’s dessert. And yes, you may be right, but we think that everyone needs to be a kid every now and then! (And beside’s they might eat them for dessert, but YOU can eat them for snack, or maybe dinner! 😉
This is the one kind of sushi that we can actually eat. We hate anything that comes from the ocean (except maybe seaweed…), so, for us, sushi is disgusting. We’ve always wanted to like sushi because it looks so good and, until we were in New York, our dreams were dashed. But now, we can eat sushi whenever we want!
Now, besides us adults (if we can even call ourselves that, right??) eating them, you can make these for your kids to enjoy or have them at a sea themed party (wouldn’t that be cute?!).
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) butter
4 cups mini marshmallows (1- 10 oz bag)
5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
8 strawberry flavored fruit roll-ups
1 package sour gummy worms (about 30 worms)
- Place a silicon baking mat on the bottom of a jelly roll pan. Set aside
- In a 4-qt pot over medium heat, melt together the butter and the marshmallows until it’s smooth. Stirring constantly. Once it’s smooth, turn off the heat and mix in the rice krispie cereal. Dump out onto the prepared jelly roll pan and press out into a thin sheet. Let cool about 5-10 minutes.
- Once it’s cool, dump it out onto a cutting board and cut in half lengthwise (like a hot dog bun).
- Working with half at a time, Lay out 4 fruit-roll ups in a line. Place the rice krispie on top of the roll-up’s. Then on one of the long edges of treat, place 2 rows of sour gummy worms.
- Starting with the edge with sour gummy worms, start rolling, rolling as tight as you can without breaking the rice krispie treat. Once it’s all rolled up, cut into equal pieces. Repeat with the second half of the rice krispie treat.
We also have a video if anything above was confusing, or you’re more of a visual learner:
