  1. Spray a 12-by-17-inch cookie sheet generously with nonstick cooking spray
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter on medium heat, then add marshmallows and stir until melted
  3. Remove pan from heat, add the puffed rice and stir to combine
  4. Pour puffed rice mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet
  5. Spray your fingers with nonstick cooking spray and spread the mixture into an even layered rectangle, about 3/4-inch thick — this won’t cover the entire cookie sheet
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  7. While puffed rice mixture is cooling, unwrap the fruit roll strips and lay on a cutting board.
  8. Spoon enough puffed rice mixture to cover the middle half of the fruit roll strip

  9. Working with one strip at a time, add a thin strip of gummy worms down the entire strip of puffed rice

  10. Starting with the side closest to you, roll the puffed rice over the gummy worms and continue to roll until the end of the strip

  11. Cut the dessert sushi roll into 1- to 2-inch thick rounds

  12. Place on a platter and repeat with the remaining rolls

Sushi Garnishes
Once your platter is complete, easily make dessert “wasabi” and “ginger” to complete the sushi bar look. To make the “wasabi,” color a tablespoon of frosting with 2-3 drops of green food coloring or use a spoonful of pistachio ice cream or sorbet.

To make the fresh “ginger,” remove the skin of an apple. Using a vegetable peeler, shave thin slices and dip them into a small bowl with a few drops of lemon juice. Remove, pat dry and add to your platter next to the dollop of “wasabi.”

This is a really cute idea for kids and great for adults too! I wanted to find a way to use the fruit roll ups I have leftover from when my niece and nephew were over. Sure they're sticky and @Ms Gigi is correct @Isamp! A toothbrush & Crest or any other kind of toothpaste would take care of the stickiness, sugar and acid from the fruit AND the marshmallows! This mock "sushi" treat is much better than many other desserts!

So cute. Will have to try this at our next Scout pot luck dinner. I live in Hawaii where sushi is extremely popular with adults and kids as well.
