I was inspired by various foodblogs to make some sushi candy last night.
I bought Odense brand marzipan at Shaw's Supermarket ($7 a tube).
I mixed various portions with food coloring and then shaped the ebi, sake, maguro, and tamago pieces. I used a knife to "paint" on a chocolate ribbon for the tamago (egg) sushi.
I also made a green strip out of marzipan as the nori for the maki pieces. The wasabi is also marzipan.
I found marzipan to be pretty easy to use and pretty tasty with the rice crispies. I had seen versions of this dish online that used Swedish fish and fruit roll ups. The idea of eating rice crispies with fruit roll ups or gummies did not appeal to me, so I decided to try this instead.
