This would make a great treat for children on April Fools day or any time for that matter. I got it from a Family Fun Magazine and love the simplicity of the recipe and how much fun the kids have with it.
- Grease a 12x17" baking sheet.
- Melt butter in a 2 quart saucepan over medium heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until smooth.
- Remove mixture from heat and stir in rice cereal until it is evenly coated.
- Turn the baking sheet so that the shorter ends are at the top and bottom.
- Then press the marshmallow mixture onto the sheet, distributing it evenly.
- Starting at one side an inch up from the lower edge, place gummy worms atop the mixture end to end in a horizontal line.
- Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
- Then stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture.
- Use the same method to form 4 more logs.
- Slice each log into 1 inch thick"sushi" rolls and wrap them individually with a strip of fruit roll-ups.
These were soooo adorable! I can't believe how cute they turned out and I even thought they tasted great! I got 4 rolls out of mine and had a little strip of plain rice krispie treats left, which did not go to waste. I still got 48 out of the recipe, since it was a 12" wide pan and you cut each of the 4 rolls into 1" pieces. I used sour neon gummy worms (only needed 3-4 in each roll, and they were overlapping a bit) and strawberry fruit by the foot (needed 8 rolls). The kids loved them and the flavors actually go well together (I thought they would be kind of yucky...oh no, I am turning into a kid after eating them! :) Anyway, thanks dayla, so much for posting this. I will be making this over and over again for parties, bake sales, etc. P.S. I would suggest letting the mixture set for a couple minutes before pressing into pan. Then allow to set a few more minutes before attempting to roll...my first roll was a bit messy.
I cannot tell you how much I (and everyone else) LOVED this recipe! It was so simple that I had my 8 year old working on a tray while I worked on a second one. I got a pack of multi-colored Twizzlers and sour gummy worms for filling and I used the tie-dye Fruit Roll-Ups for a funky color on the outside. I used a large sheet pan (I think it's 12x18 or something like that) and I got 5 rolls but I do not remember how many pieces I cut them into so I don't know the final count. I was enough to fill the tray that I made them in, though. I made them for my sister's Asian themed 14th birthday party and they got rave reviews from all of the guests. A few of the girls asked me to make them for their birthday parties. I served them with chocolate syrup for soy sauce and they disappeared so quickly that I didn't even get a picture! Thank you so much for posting. I already have plans to make them again.
Made these to take to a chinese themed cub scouts banquet. Honestly, who can't resist rice crispies.... especially when these little critters are so stinkin' cute? Used the yo-go rollups for wrapping around and topped with colored sweedish fish for a little flare.
