DIY: Awesome Candy Sushi – It turned out to be a great Birthday Party activity!

Published by Kim Becker on

First, and most importantly, Lizzy turned 10 yesterday! Happy birthday, Elizabeth. Where has my baby gone? Who is this BIG girl who longs for skinny jeans and earrings? Continue reading for our Candy Sushi Recipe – DIY Instructions and Recipe. YUM!

DIY: Candy Sushi. Recipe and Step-by-step tutorial.
Candy Sushi Birthday Party – Happy Birthday Lizzy!

We had a home party on Friday with some Rock band, hot dogs, cake pops and candy sushi. The candy sushi was the craft and the take home treat. Yes, I am a cheapskate.

Candy Sushi Recipe – DIY Instructions and Recipe. YUM!

The sushi was inexpensive and easy, more importantly the kids had fun. One child told me it was the best birthday party she’d ever been to. Are you thinking what I am thinking? That poor child has been party deprived, or perhaps she’s just an ass-kisser! She did score points with this mommy.

Step by step instructions with photos:

Rice Krispie Treats for Candy Sushi Recipe

I used this recipe <– HERE, to make up a batch of Rice Krispie squares. I added 8 extra marshmallows to the recipe to make sure they wouldn’t be too crispy. Clearly, I like to do things the easy way, so I used the microwave instructions, they worked perfectly.

Rice Krispie Treats for Candy Sushi Recipe

In brief, once they had cooled, I trimmed up the slabs of Rice Krispie treats into nice neat rectangles and stacked them on wax paper for making Candy Sushi. Clearly, I wanted to make it as simple and easy as possible for the kids to create their own Candy Sushi. It should be noted that Georgia and I enjoyed eating all the Rice Krispie Treats trimmings.

Rice Krispies ready to make Candy Sushi

In the end, I made 3 full batches of Rice Krispie Squares one after the other, to get 8 thin slabs for the party and a couple of practice slabs for Georgia and I. It took about 20 minutes total.

I’ve never made candy sushi before, so I thought I’d better practice before I tried it out on the kids. As you can imagine Georgia was extra excited. I sat her across from me at the kitchen table and pretended she was the birthday party. I figured if I could get a three year old on a sugar high to make candy sushi, then I could handle a gang of 10 year old’s.

Twizzlers and Gummy Worms to make Candy Sushi

Add candy. I bought colored Twizzlers, gummi worms, jujube fish and fruit roll-ups.

Roll the Rice Krispie Treats around the candy to make your Candy Sushi rolls.

Don’t roll it more than one full roll. You don’t want it to be too thick.

Trim the excess Rice Krispies Treats from the roll.

Trim the excess with a sharp knife.

Obviously a better mom than I, would have brushed her hair before now!

Georgia was having a good time.

Undoubtedly she is thinking, ‘my mom rocks!’

Ultimately, remember that this is a Party, therefore, make sure you allow snacking!

Last but not least, a sticky sweet Fruit Roll-Up!

Once you’ve trimmed the roll, wrap the fruit roll up around it (squeeze). Green fruit roll-ups would be best, but I couldn’t find them. I left the plastic wrap on my roll-up while I applied it to the candy, none of the kids bothered to do this. It works well both ways, just make sure to remove it before cutting.

adult supervision required

Now it’s time to cut your candy roll into to cute California roll style sushi. You’ll need a sharp knife to get through the gummy worms and Twizzlers in the center. Georgia wanted to do it herself. I let her … practice makes perfect.

Nevertheless, all 10 fingers intact! Practice will make perfect!

For all the worry-warts out there, the cutting was accompanied by repeated safety warnings. She survived the cutting with all of her fingers in tact.

Finally! Very Pretty Candy Sushi!

Above all nice thing about not finding green fruit roll-ups is the pretty product. I’m loving the colors.

Candy Sushi – Nigiri Roll

It should be noted, that I made the slabs long enough for each child to make two rolls of candy sushi. They then used any leftovers to make a Nigiri style sushi. I also gave each of them a ‘bento box’ to take home their creations. It curbed the urge to eat all of the sushi, and hence, candy at my house.

Georgia managed to make these with no help at all.

    you. are. a. retard. “concerned mom”.

    get out of here, your kids must hate you lol

      Bianca · February 4, 2010 at 1:42 pm

      @emily, LOL…Agreed! Get a life! Give your kids some independence! They will love you more for it!

    Fliptrx · November 3, 2009 at 1:36 pm


    I’ve made it to seventy and had a mom that let me play with all kinds of scary dangerous toys and sharp objects like scissors, with real points…and knives for Mumbley Peg etc. In fact most of my generation made it just fine.

    We were taught to respect our toys, and our tools and were taught to use them properly. Unlike today, most busy bodys were too busy trying to raise their own kids instead of telling everyone else how to raise theirs.

    I’d suggest you get a life!

      Fliptrx · November 3, 2009 at 1:38 pm


      DAMN, people like you really make me angry!

      MommyKnows · November 7, 2009 at 5:35 pm

      @Fliptrx, Amen!

        Kimberly · August 25, 2010 at 3:11 am

        @MommyKnows, I defenetly agree that this is a great recipe. My son is having his 5th bday in a few days and im making these for him. CONCERNED MOM is crazy and retarted. I dont know if i would have let my son use a knife at 3 but im a little parnoid myself. I think all kids need to be taught these things at a semi young age so they know how to do it. I will be teaching him how to do things like that this year. I think you did a fine job with the teaching of knife use. Supervised and gets to learn…great idea. No complaints from me. Keep doing what you do!

          MommyKnows · August 27, 2010 at 6:09 pm

          @Kimberly, Thanks Kimberly. Happy birthday you to your boy :)

    seriously?? · May 24, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    @CONCERNED MOM, WOW! Seriously?!?!?!… she was being supervised and had instruction..I say that it was an excellent learning opportunity… teaching her how to safetly use knives under supervision… I think it was an awesome idea and including your kids in the learning process — what more could you want? I included my sister growing up in the learning process in the kicthen and now she can make and bake all her own food from scratch and knows how to cook dinner if she wants too (shes 14)… she LOVES to be in the kicthen and cook food! I think its an awesome skill that so many kids are now deprived of its sad…….. cooking is a very valuable skill to have in this day an age! I say all credit to mommyknows……. And yeah… take the hint – get a life (and maybe allow your own kids if you have them freedom and space under supervison… its a precious and valuable gift!)

    chelsea · October 16, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    @CONCERNED MOM, haha OH NO! A CHILD WAS ALLOWED TO CUT FOOD!!! please call the cops! lol whateverrr. kids are a lot more capable of doing things than you may think. give a kid a chance to try things on his or her own. you would be suprised and amazed at what kids can do!

    emily · October 26, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    you are so right

    Mom who is pritective, but not overprotective, like concerned mom · January 22, 2016 at 9:17 pm

    I agree, BUT i think ;once they are 5, they are allowed to use plastic knives, once they are 6, they are allowed to use butter knives, once they are 8, I will let them handle a (silverware) knife on their own, once they are 11, they are allowed to handle steak knives on their own, once they are 16, they can handle any other knives.

Jodi Renshaw · March 24, 2009 at 8:39 pm

Happy Birthday Big Girl …. 2 digits now!

And I absolutely love your party idea and treats. I am going to have to try this. Will let you know how mine come out. Thanks so much for sharing :)


Jodi Renshaw · March 24, 2009 at 8:40 pm

Ummmmmm….. is “Concerned Mom” for real? And if so, would it be inappropriate for me to kick her ass?


Mik · March 24, 2009 at 8:46 pm

That is an awesome idea and something I could see our grand kids enjoy doing, dang, I’d enjoy doing it.

Mik’s last blog post..From the mouths of babes

TheIowaKid · March 24, 2009 at 8:51 pm

Wow I have to say “CONCERNED MOM” is going to have some very unwanted kids in society if they are as deprived as she sounds….back to whats important here….YOU are a awesome Mom with excellent ideas! Letting your kids partake in the preparation of their siblings social events only readies them for a very social life. We all know that this is a key to being very happy and fulfilled. “CONCERNED MOM” is the one that locks her kids up in their rooms and has laser alarms on their windows. They grow up hating her and society! DYFUS needs to be looking for her. What a loon.

Anyway, Candy Sushi = Brilliant! MK, you are the rockingest.

Wait, maybe it’s spelled “rockin’est”? You know what I mean, though, right? As in “You rock”! :D

Brilliant! I love it. What an awesome party idea. I think I may borrow it for grown-ups… :D

Ok, and you know you’re the best mom ever (except my mom of course, Hi Mom!). I know you won’t stress yourself over “Concerned Mom”‘s comment. It’s obvious that Georgia was supervised, had safety warnings, and had the joy of doing something for herself, learning how to be careful and developing her senses of independence, ability and accomplishment. Awesome lessons and something that both you and she can take pride in.

I would have so many more cavities if I grew up in your household, but it’d be worth it. I love gummy bears.

John · March 25, 2009 at 12:15 pm

The recipe seems nice, although I can’t help feeling that all of the 10 year olds I know (lots) would be patronised being taken through all of this. Maybe things are just different across the pond.

    Lisa · December 20, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    @John, I don’t understand this comment
    at all. Kids would feel patronized by cooking?? My daughter and I
    are making these right now for her International Day holiday party
    at school tomorrow. She got Japan and we couldn’t find anything
    Japanese to bring in, so we’re improvising on sushi with these
    treats. So far, I think my base isn’t cooled down enough because
    it’s pulling apart when I try to roll it, so I’m giving it more

One Scrappy Gal · March 25, 2009 at 12:18 pm

I love this idea and will have to try it!!

Please post more stuff like this! Love reading it. :)

HaleyWoods · March 25, 2009 at 2:29 pm

My boyfriend must think he is just one big kid because he stumbled this to me in hopes of a “Candy Sushi Party.” Now I am going to have to play “mommy” to a group of 25-30yr olds!

… But I have to admit that I am also kinda excited about trying this!!!

jafer · March 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Looks like a sushi I might actually eat! I’ve never made rice krispie squares in the microwave, but then I think I’ve only ever made them once or twice in my entire life, and now that there are no little kids here, I guess I’m not likely to make them again. (Although I have bought a big box of them already made at Costco while my daughter was still here.)

Jessi · March 25, 2009 at 3:15 pm

This was an awesome idea. KUDOS!


DS901 · March 25, 2009 at 3:43 pm

I’ve never been tempted to even try sushi until now. This is such a creative idea and especially since you got all the kids involved. I’m going to give this a try at our next party. My kids are 17 and 16 now, but they still enjoy crafts and games. Our last party included making a gingerbread house.

Kids Cakes · March 25, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Very clever idea and so much fun for kids – I’m always on the hunt for new party ideas and favors :)

I am fervently praying that Concerned Mom gets a life sometime REALLY soon… yesterday! Have you ever heard of parental supervision?? I pity the sheltered and deprived lives her children must be experiencing.

Sign me: Mom of 3 who lived to tell about it.

Auntie Gayle · March 27, 2009 at 7:26 am

I just can’t leave this alone……..

PS: to Concerned Mom. What is tragic is that YOU are a parent. Good luck to your kids. Unfortunately, luck alone will not prepare your misguided children to survive and most importantly, flourish!
Now I’m going to shovel the 2 feet of snow off the driveway because I’m still having difficulty believing that someone as irrational as you can make me so profoundly enraged……..i.e.P.O.!

carrie · March 27, 2009 at 8:02 am

awesome idea.

ignore concerned mom.

I love rice krispie recipies because they are so simple to do, but I never thought about using the final product as a entertainment tool … wow.

Just curious though, how did the 10 year olds take to the idea? My guess is that they loved it.

Loved your post.

Oh my God! This is a brilliant idea! I am going back to my university on Monday and I had planned to make a spring cake for all to have, but now I am thinking candy sushi would be better (and probably healthier)!


Duggi · March 27, 2009 at 11:47 am

I just stumbled upon this, and I had to comment.
Woah. I’m almost 19 and I want to make this.
Then I let my fianceé watch the pictures, and she’s all like.. “Why don’t you make things like this to me?”
Living in Europe probably complicated getting all the “right” ingredients. But practice makes master, as everyone says.

Thumbs up, though!

Lucid Dreamer · March 27, 2009 at 12:59 pm

Ah! I love making sushi, it is one of my favorite things to make, from start to finish, it’s just a lot of fun, esp in a group. It had never occurred to me that something like candy sushi could be possible. Awesome article! It would be really fun to try this as my next sushi throwdown, maybe advertise it as sushi with sushi candy for dessert!

Concerned mum should be more concerned about how her children will eventually handle knives if she doesn’t let them handle them while younger under supervision…

But this is the best idea EVER! Candy Sushi! I am totally making these! It’s sheer genius!

I stumbled upon this.. and I have 2 boys that will be THRILLED to do this. They love helping in the kitchen, and I can’t wait to try it:). I think the rainbow fruit rollups are a nice touch, very crafty!

Kat · April 2, 2009 at 12:04 pm

Did you get that recipe from “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Recipes for Busy Moms”? That’s where I first saw it. It’s an adorable recipe, and I want to try it too.

MakeyCakey · April 2, 2009 at 1:54 pm

Oh man – these are gorgeous! I am going to have a grown up girlie craft party over easter, and I think these might be the star attraction :0) Since I have all the ingredients in my cupboard for the crispies at the moment I’m having a seriously hard time resisting the urge to make them right now!

My friends and I have sushi night each week where we make our own sushi. We tried to make a “super serious” dessert sushi that failed, I wish we had made this candy sushi, it would have been super amazing, we will try this.

No matter what a great idea candy sushi is giving a young child a very sharp knife is just asking for an accident to happen.

Escoofield · April 4, 2009 at 1:25 pm

Wow..! this is so cool! Maybe i can eat raw candy!
Because i don’t eat raw fish….

PseudoPunk · April 6, 2009 at 12:04 pm

I made this last weekend! It turned out AWESOME! Thanks for the great idea!

My tips: use parchment paper instead of wax paper, it doesn’t stick as badly. Also, spray your hands with cooking oil while working with the rice crispy treats, it makes it SO much easier to handle!

Great idea though! Thanks!

geek girl · April 6, 2009 at 3:43 pm

Beautiful! I’m totally making some of these for my wedding!

first timer · April 8, 2009 at 8:29 am

hi, this is my first time visiting your site. first, lovely photos! and second, this candy sushi is such a great idea. i’ll keep it in mind for my daughter’s 10th bday party (in 5 more years…sniff, sniff). they do grow up so fast!

Zulfikar · April 9, 2009 at 10:36 am

Candy sushi? with no fish insight? Oh yes I’ll have some of those please! Goodness me they look so yummies.

i just made these last night for a monthly girls game night i am having with my 30-something year old girlfriends, we have a potluck and this month’s theme is ‘pan-asian’…they were so easy to make and are very tasty! i can’t wait to unveil my creations for everyone- thanks for the fabulous idea!!

Peter Grievik · April 22, 2009 at 9:48 pm

Hey!. Nice! Really caouldn\’t agree more REGARDING \”ushi – how to make | mommyknows – a mommy blog\”. I really liked it a lot. Try cheap candy wrappers. Thanks.

Aimee · April 23, 2009 at 9:32 am

Love it! I do worry about my hyperactive child when it comes to candy coma’s, so we made these with FRUIT (banana, strawberry, mango,papyaya, pears) and the fruit juice type of fruit roll up. If she is getting fruit, it totally cancels out the marshmellows in the rice crispies anyway (mommy logic trumps daddy logic anyday). IT WAS YUMMY! Thanks for the inspiration.

Tori @ Thoughtfully Simple · April 24, 2009 at 4:06 pm

This is an adorable party activity and treat all in one! Anything that keeps kids hands busy and their minds engaged I am all for :). I am thinking I have got to share your idea with my readers for sure! Thanks for the awesome post and great how-to!!

OMG, YOU LET YOUR KIDS EAT CANDY?!?! HOW TERRIBLE!!!!! No, i’m just kidding! This sounds like so much fun!! I wish I weren’t diabetic ): These look yummy. But really just the RKTreats… i’m not much of a fruit roll up kind of candy girl. Now, if they could make chocolate that could go around the RKTreat like the fruit rollup, i’d be all in!!!

Laura · June 16, 2009 at 9:41 pm

i am totally going to have to make this, what an adorable idea!

Expat Mom · June 17, 2009 at 11:10 am

Mmm! I wonder if I can find what I need to make these here? I let my 3 year old son cut things, too . . . how are they going to learn, otherwise? He´s very careful and I let him cut up things like hot dogs and cooked veggies all the time. He´s never once cut his fingers.

Expat Mom’s last blog post..The REAL Reason I´m Not Around

just a college boy · June 19, 2009 at 1:21 am

hey, was just stumbling upon this, and it looks amazing. had to comment and tell you, this is something i can do with my girlfriend when i go to visit her, she loves to cook and do little craft things like this.

and, yet i cannot leave this alone either “concerned mom” sounds like my mom… your children will grow up to hate you if you act like this.

P.s. i recently became a vegetarian and i consider fish to be meat, so this is some sushi i can actually eat :)

Josan · June 20, 2009 at 5:47 pm

Had to comment..Love this! I will be making this SOON! Don’t let “Concerned Mom” get to you, what a twit. I do wonder, though, if the “dental floss trick” would work for the cutting? Especially for larger, “not-as-easily-supervised”, groups like Scouts, or any kids with a disability (where desire to do as everyone else does may not match with ability or motor skills).. Guess I’ll try it…Great tutorial, great site!

Joe · June 21, 2009 at 11:09 am

Wonderful recipe, but this little girl has no business using a KNIFE, even if supervised. Isn’t she a tad too young? Come on, people.

Angelina · June 21, 2009 at 11:42 pm

That is very cute.i will definetely be doing this soon!!!! :)

vanessa capotlan · September 11, 2009 at 5:22 am

hi i just wanna ask how to make the rice criespies square? i mean what did you used to make it bind? did you put any sugar in it or what? and by the way i enjoy this! i think its yummy! good job MOMMY :)

Los Angeles Life Coach · September 14, 2009 at 10:38 pm

Thanks these pictures are really cute. The idea is interesting. I wonder if I can try it with my kids, but then I’d feel bad since I can’t claim it is something that dad came up with on his own. Wonder if he’d call me a cheapskate since he loves sushi as well I do, lol.

Tom Darisse · September 29, 2009 at 12:13 pm

Great idea to provide bento boxes in order to avoid “stuffing”.
I did notice quite an array of meds on your kitchen window; these would make nice, colorful “Med Sushis” for yourself.

Chele · October 12, 2009 at 8:21 am

My daughter is graduating from college, she has an unending sweet tooth, she’s allergic to fish, and ALL her friends love sushi. This will be the hit of the party! Thanks for a GREAT idea. I need to put my two cents in re: “concerned mom”. It’s a substantiated fact more kids get hurt cutting with inadequate, not-sharp-enough plastic knives! Back in the day, I taught every girl in my daughters’ Girl Scout troop the importance of safe knife handling. Guess what? These girls (with all their digits) still comment that learning cooking skills (including knives) in my kitchen all those years ago gave them a love of cooking that got them through those “first out on my own” college years. Teach them, don’t deny them, and they’ll be better prepared for the real world.

child safety gate Christine · October 12, 2009 at 8:31 pm

Ha,Ha Candy sushi. That is a really amazing idea. I came from Japan. I never thought of the candy sushi. I will try that for my daughter. She is going to be 7. I am not sure if she will like it or not. Anyway I will try…

this is seriously the cutest idea i have ever seen!

Baby Bassinet · October 14, 2009 at 3:59 pm

It would be a fun idea to have a sushi party night for adults and kids. This could involve the kids helping to prep and make the candy sushi and the adults could learn how to make their own real sushi rolls.

Brittany · October 31, 2009 at 5:27 pm

wow, I just stumbled upon this and found it to be a great idea! It’s funny…my boyfriend is deployed and he’s coming back in December and was saying how, when he comes back, the first place he’s going to go is to a sushi restaurant, because he loves and misses sushi. I think I might prepare this and send it out in a decorative tin as a little surprise for him before he comes back :)

thanks for the step by step instructions….love the pics with your daughter, along with the comment about her hair not being brushed…it made me smile.

Thanks to you my 14 year old is now having sushi instead of cupcakes at her birthday party next week. :) You rock…by the way, my kids have handled knives from a young age…one is in nursing school, the other at the united states air force academy (with all their fingers) and a lot of responsibility because they were taught to use knives properly at a young age. Thanks!

turns out my kids just like rice krispy treats better.. though they did enjoy making the sandy sushi!
I think next time.. I will just do cake nigiri or jelly/cream roll sushi’s.. I think they’d like them better. Still the idea is cute!

Not just for little kids. I plan to make these for my son’s 30th bday since he’s a regular sushi fan. I can predict the eye rolls, but he expects the weird from me by now. Thanks!!! I learned about this from 2 class moms in a supermarket who were loaded up with Rice Krispies boxes, etc. and in reply to my commenting on the obvious – oh, RK treats? – filled me in on the sushi.

Vivian · February 28, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Can you prepare the rice krispies sheets ahead of time? If so, how many days ahead, and how do you store them to keep them plyable? I’m thinking of having this for teens and I am sure they are going to want to make more that 1 roll. Thank you very much.

Brigid · April 18, 2011 at 9:02 am

THIS WAS GREAT!!! We made both kinds of candy sushi for my daughter’s 10th birthday over the weekend – I tried to find bento boxes, but settled for tupperware with lids that I let the girls decorate with markers and stickers. It was great! We also made flower lollipops (melted lifesavers on popsicle sticks – VERY cute) and put them into little flower pots I found for $1 each at Target, and rolled pretzel sticks in chocolate, then in different sprinkles, let them dry, then packed them in cellophane bags and tied them with ribbons – and “painted” with jellybeans, using frosting on aluminum-foil covered foam board I’d cut into squares. The girls were so creative. It was really fun to watch them.

The only problem for me is, I made the rice krispies too marshmellowy, and probably didn’t let them cool and dry long enough, so the girls had a hard time rolling the sushi. I wound up having to make the sushi with each girl one-on-one while the others played and danced (we downloaded candy-themed music from itunes like tutti frutti and I’m a gummy bear, etc) But – THANKS for these great instructions and photos! We had a ball!

Stephanie · April 27, 2011 at 12:08 pm

If you line cupcakes up, circling round on a covered board, you
can create a ‘caterpillar’ effect for a child’s birthday party.
Although they are a beautiful and calming sight, making sugarcraft flower-topped cupcakes from scratch conjures up anything but calm.
Use a hand batter and keep on batting the mixture

Hi there. SUCH a cute idea. I am thinking of doing this with a large group of Elementary aged kids. There wont be one-on -one attention– more like one adult per table. With this in mind, do you think that a plastic knife would cut through the roll adequately or is it too firm at that point? Thanks so much.

In any case, this popped up in a google search and I am definitely going to use it. Thanks so much for posting.
