No, there isn't raw fish in these Rice Krispies treats, just good old-fashioned marshmallows, Swedish Fish gummies, and Fruit by the Foot (or Fruit Roll-Ups). My friend made them for me as a Christmas present and they were so darn cute, I couldn't stop taking pictures. Not bad tasting either, as a sweet and crunchy snack. Plus, it's a fun hands-on activity for the kids. The recipe, after the jump.
- 6 cups Rice Krispies (or other puffed rice cereal)
- 4 cups marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter
- 12 to 20 Swedish Fish (or other fish-shaped candy)
- 1 package of Fruit by the Foot or Fruit Roll-Ups
- Gummy worms (optional)
Unwrap Swedish Fish and Fruit by the Foot and set to side. Prepare a baking sheet with wax paper.
Melt butter and marshmallows together.
Once melted together reduce heat and gently stir in Rice Krispies.
Keep mixture warm and pliable and immediatly start forming into sushi-sized balls (or a little bigger). Place Swedish Fish on top and wrap with a piece of the Fruit by the Foot. Lie on baking sheet and work till all Rice Krispies mix is finished.
If you are feeling ambitious, wrap some of the mixture around a folded gummy worm for the "stuffed" effect.
