What could be cuter than a sushi playdate snack for the adults and the kiddos? Regular sushi special rolls, maki, nigiri and temaki may have items you aren’t ready to give your little ones. So turn a creative craft into an impressive snack for all to see. All you need is a few ingredients and an eager extra set of hands.
Start by cutting the Twinkies into slices. Roll out the Fruit Rollups and cut into 2 size strips. One to wrap around Nigiri. One for the seaweed wrap on the special rolls. Shave bits and pieces of the dried papaya and place in the middle for ginger. Cut powdered sugar donut minis in half. Next, place a Swedish Fish on top and wrap in a Fruit Rollup slice.
Once sushi is all together make sure to place creations into the refrigerator to avoid a melty mess.
While you and your girlfriends are enjoying a light and healthy lunch, the tots can enjoy their modified versions for a mini sugar high. Sorry! HHM does make the conscious effort to share healthier recipes, instead of ones that are all pumped up with sugar, but they were too cute to resist.
