Candy Sushi

I was looking at my Halloween recipes (as it is almost here) and found this one for candy sushi. I made this a few years ago and it was pretty good and cute. It would be a great treat for kids on Halloween. They'd even have fun making it, as it is nice and messy - a perfect match for kids, right.:) I got the idea from Rachael Ray - she does a Halloween special each year and most of her stuff isn't things I'd like, but this was a great idea:

Candy Sushi

1 tablespoon butter, cut into pieces
12 regular marshmallows
2 cups Rice Krispies (or any puffed cereal)
4 fruit roll-ups (whatever flavor you want)
8 strips licorice (I just buy the normal stuff and you cut it match your roll-ups)

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir marshmallows until completely melted. Remove mixture from heat and add cereal. Stir to coat cereal evenly in melted marshmallows. (In other words, you are starting to make Rice Krispies treats.)

Roll out the fruit roll-ups. Place 1/4 of the coated cereal onto each fruit roll up and spread and gather toward 1 side of roll up. Place 2 licorice twists onto the center of the spread out cereal mix. Wrap and roll the candy and fruit, maneuvering the licorice to the center of the roll, so that the finished product resembles a sushi roll. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Place a sharp knife into a bowl of very warm water. Cut candy sushi with warm knife and arrange on a plate then serve. (The cutting is a pain in the butt, I think - the kids can help with the rolling, but an adult will have to do the cutting.)
