Cook Time:

Serves:
20 sushi rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup mini-marshmallows
  • 2 cups cooked rice (any)
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pint fruit medley, like strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, and cantaloupe

Directions

To make sweet sticky "sushi" rice: In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and marshmallows until completely soft. Remove from the heat and stir in the cooked rice until well blended. Spray the nigiri mold or ice cube tray lightly with nonstick spray. Take slices of the fruit medley and place in the bottom of the mold or ice cube tray. Spoon in rice and press gently into the fruit. Unmold the "sushi" and top with mini chocolate chips and toasted coconut, if desired.

 Same here. She's never been much of a tv watcher, but she really likes watching the food channel, and though we do restrict the time on even these, I think it's a good thing.

I wonder if it's a 12 yr old  girl thing....Beth will spend all day Saturday watching food shows if I'd let her!

Quoting SweetLuci:

 I was wondering because our 12 year old (whose birthday was 3 weeks ago) loves to watch food shows and check out online sites and then make something, and she recently make a fruit sushi, usinf fruit and rice,  but a little different from this.
