VISITING DAY TREATS
Camp visiting day will be here before you know it. What do kids at sleep away camp want? Candy or junk food is always a hit. Sure, lots of stores sell goodies that campers would like, but why not try to make them yourself?
My friends and I have a tradition of getting together before visiting day and making candy sushi. The kids love it and we love making it for them. Here is the recipe so you can join in the fun.
Rice Krispies treats
Fruit roll ups
Swedish Fish, gummy worms, sour patch kids or any similar size candy
Cupcake Icing to make “spicy” sushi
Chopsticks for decoration
Plastic containers from the Dollar Store
California Rolls: Roll or press the Rice Krispies treats to make a flat sheet.
Lay fruit roll up on the Rice Krispies treat sheet and cut it to flattened sushi size. Flip it over and lay gummy worms or licorice strings on one end. Roll the California roll up and cut it into for sushi rolls.
Nigiri Sushi: Cut 1×2 inch rectangles out of the Rice Krispies treat sheet. place a Swedish Fish or gummy on top. Wrap around a strip of fruit roll up, licorice string or other thin candy.
Package in the Dollar Store containers for transport to the big day.
