 There’s a bonus, too, as it has the shrimp tempura recipe.
          For ahi/gunkan:
Use a whole or half ready-made Rice Krispies Treat. Shape into a rectangular block and round the corners. On the top, push slightly down in the center to create
a small bowl with a wall all around. Set aside.
For musubi: At an angle, trim off two corners of a ready-made Rice Krispies Treat, leaving a triangular shape. Round the edges and mold into a triangle musubi shape. Set aside.
Add the nori: Follow the manufacturer’s directions and melt a small batch of milk or dark chocolate. Add a few drops of black icing coloring to the melted chocolate if you want to have a truer color for the nori. Spread a thin layer of chocolate on the outside edges of the prepared sushi.
      Finishing touches: You can place the sushi
in the refrigerator
for a few minutes to harden the chocolate quicker. For musubi: Add a red mini M&M to the center on one side for the ume. For ahi/gunkan: Cut up red gummy bears into small chunks and place on top of the Rice Krispies boat.
    Place your sushi on a plate to serve or in a bento box to give as a gift. Add a pair of chopsticks to complete.
