You could have had ME fooled! - Recipe

“He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever”
Chinese proverb

This is a recipe I came across at my favourite online cusine webpage. I loved the idea and decided to share it with you. My daughter is going to have such fun bringing these to school tomorrow.

Directions for Sushi look-a-like:
1.) Make a batch of Rice Krispies Treats
2.) Shape into small oval mounds while still warm.
3.) Top with a dab of pistachio paste
4.) Cover with whole or minced red and orange gummy candy (such as Chuckles or Sunkist Fruit Slices).
5.) Wrap with a strip of green fruit leather, if desired.

Directions for Sushi roll look-a-like:
Flatten a warm Rice Krispies Treat mound into a thin rectangle on a piece of fruit leather and arrange gumdrops down the center. Roll into a cylinder and slice into pieces. Serve the sushi with wasabi, ginger, and chocolate syrup as soy sauce. Cut a sour-candy belt to look like a grass garnish.

Directions: Pickled Ginger look-a-like
Soak 2 tablespoons shredded coconut in 1/2 cup water with 1 drop each of yellow and red food coloring.

Directions: Wasabi look-a-like
Pulse 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios, 1/4 cup cream cheese and 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar in a food processor.

Happy April Fool's Day!
