Creative DIY Candy Sushi Treats

Make this fun candy sushi with a handful of candy supplies and sweet snacks.

  • Prepare the candy “seaweed wraps” by cutting strips of green fruit roll-up, about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long.
  • Wrap each fruit roll-up strip around a large marshmallow, using a bit of water on the end of the fruit roll-up to stick it down.
  • Gently make a hole in the center of each marshmallow and insert small pieces of colorful gummy candy, keeping the ends even so the top of the candy sushi is flat.
  • Arrange the candy sushi on your buffet table or dessert plate and enjoy!
  • Experiment with using Swedish fish and sprinkles to embellish your candy sushi and create a sweet sushi assortment!
