It won’t take years of practice as a sushi apprentice to learn how to make this type of sushi. Using Rice Krispies Treats as the rice and candy and Peeps as the fish, the familiar shapes of sushi can be represented as sweet-to-eat treats. You’ll never look at Mike and Ikes or Hot Tamales the same way again. Peeps however, always did seem to have a fishy existence, so using them as sushi somehow seems appropriate.

Read on for how to make your own Peeps sushi. Makes a good activity for the kids.
