This easy “dessert sushi” recipe will make your tastebuds soy happy

If you have a constant sushi and candy craving (sometimes simultaneously), you’ll find this dessert absolutely satisfying. Even better? This is the only sushi recipe that you can dip into chocolate. (Granted, you could dip a spicy tuna roll into chocolate, but we’re not sure how that tastes.)

Wrap your favorite candy in marshmallow treats to create the most delicious, rolled-up snack. These bite-sized sushi pieces would be perfect for any kids party or evening with friends (because honestly, adults require candy, too). The fun is definitely in the creative decorating. Watch the video below for different ideas or go totally off-script with your own favorite candy. These will be the sweetest California rolls you’ve ever tasted.
