Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Candy Sushi

This play on sushi is so cute, and kids LOVE it! I make them for my third graders when we are studying cultures around the world. They make a great party food, too!

1/4 cup butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups rice crispy cereal
1 (11 oz.) bag of gummy worms
2 boxes of Fruit by the Foot (or any fruit leather)


Spray a 12 x 17 inch baking sheet with non-stick baking spray.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until smooth.
Remove from heat and quickly stir in the cereal until it's well-blended and evenly coated.
Press the mixture evenly onto the baking sheet. It helps if you spray your hands with the baking spray before you press out the mixture. (How-to pictures are posted below.)

Starting at one short side of the pan, one inch in, place the gummy worms end-to-end in a horizontal line. It should take 3 worms to do this step.
Gently roll the lower edge of the marshmallow mixture over the gummy worms.
Stop and cut the log away from the rest of the mixture. Continue making logs until you run out of room. You should be able to make 5-6 logs.

Next, cut the logs into ~1 inch pieces. Wrap each piece with a section of the fruit leather. (How-to pictures are posted below.) You may need to sort of mold the 'sushi' pieces a little to get them shaped right after cutting and wrapping them.
