You Will Need
* 3 tbsp. butter
* 10 oz. marshmallows
* 6 c. crispy rice cereal
* Gummy worms and fish
* Licorice sticks
* Fruit leather
* A microwave oven* A microwave-safe bowl
* A spatula
* Wax paper
* 3 12" x 7" baking sheets
* A knife
Step 1: Heat the butter and marshmallows
Heat the butter and marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl on high for 2 minutes. Stir the mixture and then microwave for an additional minute.
Step 2: Add cereal, flatten into sheets, and cool
Add the cereal, stirring until it's coated. Use a spatula to flatten the mixture onto three wax paper-lined 12-inch by 7-inch baking sheets.
Step 3: Trim the cereal sheets into rectangles
Allow the mixture to cool completely. Then use a knife to cut each sheet in half, trimming the edges of the sheets to make six rectangles.
Step 4: Place candy at the end of the sheets, and roll
Place a few gummy worms, fish, or licorice sticks at the short edge of one cereal sheet. Roll the sheet around the candy once, until the cereal just overlaps, and then trim the remainder.
Step 5: Wrap a fruit roll-up around the candy roll
Wrap fruit leather tightly around your candy roll. Gently squeeze it to make your sushi together.
Step 6: Slice the roll into eight even pieces, serve and eat
Run a sharp knife under very warm water to heat it. Then cut the roll into eight even pieces. Once all sushi is cut, plate, serve and enjoy!
Mildred Day invented Rice Krispie treats in the 1930s as a fundraiser for the Camp Fire Girls. Soon after, Kellogg's began printing her recipe on their cereal boxes.
