Rice Krispies Sushi

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.
