Junk food Sushi

With school buses and teachers just about ready to welcome little one back to school, it’s important to soak up all the Summer fun while we still can!

My girls love to be in the thick of all I do. Be it cleaning or gardening, I can always count on having little shadows and helpers at my side! I love doing things geared towards their imagination and abilities! This is the PERFECT recipe for any young helper!


Junk Food Sushi is a concoction of all things kids love…


Twinkies! Fruit Roll Ups!! Candy!!!


I love the color of these Green Apple Fruit roll ups!!! They look as close to Seaweed
as you could get!!

Unroll the fruit roll up and using a pizza cutter slice it in 6 strips.


Now you will slice each Twinkie into three equal parts. Wrap a slice of the Fruit roll up
around each piece of Twinkie leaving the cream filling sides exposed.


Now comes the fun part! Add your favorite small candies! I always add a Swedish Fish!! It is “Sushi” right!!!! We also added sour Gummie Worms that I cut in half and Tropical Flavored Skittles! Other candies to consider using are Red Hots, Licorice Pieces,
Mike ‘n Ikes and Jelly Beans! Anything small and colorful!

And VOILA!!! A super yummy tasty treat!
(I personally hate Twinkies and the taste of these but I’m a mom!!)
Kids LOVE ‘em and why wouldn’t they! Sugar!Candy! Junk Food!!!!

    so cute. You are such a good Mama. I was in Utah over the weekend and wanted to get in touch with you so bad, but it seems like every time we are there we are pulled in about 80 different directions. Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you and longing to see you.

    i wish i hated twinkies too, but i dont- i love em. so making these would not be good in my house because i would eat the whole box of twinkies and my kids wouldn't get and sushi rolls!

    I did a Kai-Lan theme at my daughter’s last party, and I made these! However, I used Air Heads candy (they were a brighter green…I wish I would have thought to use fruit roll ups!) and rice crispy treats instead of Twinkies. They were a HUGE hit! :)
