Candy Sushi

A few weeks ago, we hosted a game night at our house. I like to make bite-sized food for game night so our hands are mostly free for playing. While brainstorming for ideas, I remembered the candy sushi a coworker made for the holiday party at work. It was adorable so I decided to try to recreate it.

There’s no real recipe here – it’s just Rice Krispie treats and candy – but the instructions below walk you through how I did it. They’re certainly not gourmet by any means, but they were definitely a crowd pleaser – the plate was completely empty by the end of the night! These are a great option for end-of-the-summer BBQs, as they won’t melt and don’t need to be chilled.


Candy Sushi

1 batch of Rice Krispie Treats
Rainbow Twizzlers
Fruit Rolls
Assorted Color Swedish Fish

For the sushi rolls:

Using a rolling pin, roll a chunk of Rice Krispie treat into a rectangle approximately 8″ by 5″. Place three Twizzlers of different colors along one long side and then roll the Rice Krispie treats up so the Twizzlers are in the middle. Wrap a fruit roll around to cover the outside of the Rice Krispie treat. Slice into 1″ sections with a sharp knife.

For fish-on-top sushi:

Roll a small handful of Rice Krispie treat into a log, and then flatten out the ends and top to make it more square. Place a Swedish Fish on top. Cut a thin strip of fruit roll and wrap it around the treat and fish to secure the fish in place.

These can be made a day or two beforehand. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

  1. My daughter is marrying a South Korean and we are doing a Candy Bar at the reception. These will be on it! Too cute! Thank you for the idea!

  2. I love the idea! He only thing was just that I was wondering if the krispie treats need to be at room temperature, cooled or warm?
