FAMILY FUN FRIDAY!-Sushi...Sweet!

Our family loves Sushi. Especially the kids. Prepare to have some Family Fun. 

YOU WILL NEED
Twinkies - Fruit Rolls - Candy


FIRST: Fruit Rolls. Use the Grape and Green Apple because they look just like Seaweed. Unwrap your fruit rolls and use a pizza cutter to cut them into strips. 1 1/2 inches or so.



NEXT: Unwrap your Twinkies and cut each Twinkie into three pieces. 



NOW: Take one piece of the Twinkie and roll it up in a strip of Fruit Roll. Be sure you roll it with the filling up. See the cream filling?



Roll them all up so that you have plenty. 


NOW comes the fun part. Remember the candy. We used Skittles, Sugar Babies, Gummi Worms (cut in half) and Mike and Ike's.


GET CREATIVE: Add a few pieces of candy to each piece of sushi. Just push them right into the filling. I also like to use the left over strips of Fruit Roll to make things Fancy.





There you have it. Sweet Sushi. 



Your kids are going to love them. 
SEAFOOD ANYONE?

p.s. You could also wrap the Twinkie in the Fruit Roll, forming a "roll" and then cut it into pieces like they do at the restaurant. If you do it this way you will want a very sharp knife, and the activity won't last as long.

p.s.s These would also be great for a birthday party. 

Enjoy your weekend.

  3. This look so funny! My 12yr old insists he likes sushi but everytime he goes near it he looks horrified. I'm going to make these for a dessert from him as a joke.

  12. Heather, I've been thinking about it and have decided that if you were to sell a "Family Fun Friday" book on Blurb (or somewhere else, for that matter), I'd totally buy it!!

    My babe is too little for a lot of this, but I would love to have some of these ideas for when he's old enough.

  13. Nichole,
    Thanks for the idea. I have been considering a "book" for a long time, but didn't know where to start. I checked out Blurb last night and loved it.

    Thanks. I will let you know if I get something put together.

  14. This is such a fun idea! My husband and I are going to do this for our date night tomorrow night. :) First we're going to eat at Panda Express, take home a few extra sets of chopsticks and then make this sweet sushi! So excited! :)

    1. Our Jovi Fruit rolls are next to the produce. They are the longer, single wrapped fruit rolls. You can probably do any fruit roll, just choose a flavor like green apple, that be a similar color. Good luck. They are so much fun to make.
