Candy Sushi Rolls

Candy sushi rolls are a playful and whimsical take on traditional sushi rolls. Instead of using fish and rice, these sweet treats use candy and other confections to mimic the look of sushi rolls. The candy is shaped into the form of a sushi roll, with rice made of rice crispy treats and the filling made of various candies like gummies, fruit roll-ups, and licorice. The "wasabi" and "soy sauce" are usually made of frosting or other sweet sauces to add to the overall sweet taste. Candy sushi rolls are perfect for themed parties or as a fun activity with kids.
