Making Our Own Sushi - Help!

The bf came up with a great idea to make sushi together this Valentine's Day. Originally I wanted to cook an elaborate meal with all his favorite things but now that's sort of nixed with this sushi plan (not that I'm complaining - I'm super excited!)

So first off, does anyone have any sushi making tips for beginners? Or, do you have any favorite roll recipes or unique ingredient ideas (i.e. mango or something like that)?

Secondly, does anyone have any suggestions for a chocolate-inspired dessert that goes with a sushi meal? I feel like a lot of the ideas I had initially - cupcakes, cakes, etc. - might be too heavy. Keep in mind I might have to make this dessert ahead of time (like tonight!)

Thanks in advance for all your help!
