Sweet Sushi

I first saw this idea over 10 years ago in a magazine and I finally got around to doing it… I thought it would be a super fun treat for April Fool’s Day!

I’ll warn you now that it is not the yummiest thing I’ve ever made, and it is quite tedious and time-consuming but it is worth it. Even my three teenage boys think they are pretty cool!

First make a batch of Rice Krispie treats:

6 cups rice cereal

40 marshmallows

2 Tablespoons butter

Melt butter and marshmallows together. Stir in cereal. Pat into a thin layer in a buttered pan.

Then take gummy worms and roll them carefully with the rice krispie treats. Cut the roll off the sheet of cookie.

Place on serving plate with a dipping sauce of Hershey’s syrup (Andy claims it isn’t that bad together).
