Pictures from the Candy Sushi Program

All of the attendees at our Candy Sushi program for ages 9-12 got creative.  Below are the the fruits of their labors.
The base ingredients were prepackaged Rice Crispy Treats, Swedish fish, Fruit Roll-Ups (green especially makes a good nori wrap), marshmallows, and sour apples straws.  Extra bits of candy were left out to enhance the base ingredients, such as pink Nerds to look like roe, and gummi fish for larger fish shapes.  Chcolate sauce was used for "soy" sauce.
