Not that these sweet treats aren’t good enough as is, but why not make them into something else? With a few other Passover delights, your child can help you to whip up a batch of candy sushi. This is super-simple and involves no cooking (unless you count microwaving—which isn’t really cooking).
You can make a variety of Passover candy sushi or pick one to focus on. I’ve included a few different ideas, but brainstorm with your child to come up with a few of your own unique ‘recipes’.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Jelly slices
· Coconut-covered marshmallows (Manischewitz makes kosher ones)
· Macaroons – The kosher kind, not the fluffy French ones.
· Taffy strips
Here’s What to Do:
To make rolls—
1. Stretch out a piece of green taffy. If it won’t budge, pop it into the microwave for a few (and I mean a few) seconds. Do not allow your child to touch the hot taffy. Watch the candy closely so that it doesn’t bubbles.
2. Press a marshmallow onto one end of the taffy. Squish it flat.
3. Slice a jelly into strips.
4. Place the strips onto the marshmallow.
5. Roll the marshmallow around the jelly pieces, pressing it together at the ends.
6. Roll the whole thing up in the taffy strip, smooshing it closed at the edges.
1. Press a coconut marshmallow flat.
2. Cut the jellies into ling, thin triangle-shaped slices.
3. Put two slices on top of the marshmallow.
4. Pull and roll a piece of warm taffy into a thin tube.
5. Wrap the candy sushi up with the taffy by pressing it around the middle.
1. Slice the bottom of a macaroon off.
2. Cut the ‘rind’ from a green fruit jelly slice.
3. Slice another colored jelly into strips.
4. Put the strips on top of the macaroon.
5. Cover with the rind in the middle.
Serve the candy sushi up on one plate, pack them in a container to give away to a friend or eat it right away. Remind your child that the taffy and jelly candies are sticky. Very young children should not eat this treat as it presents a choking hazard.
