There is much going on in the world of sweet sushi. A google search brought up more tasty tidbits that have simply knocked me speechless. Really:
ok, I’ve shaken off the stun spell, enough to yell: KOO-KI SUSHI! This is what i want to do when I grow up! Buttery caramel, sweet apricot gummies, dark chocolate wraps, and hazelnut chocolate filled raspberry maguro… inspiring candy. Nigiri can be purchase in single pieces with a cute edible chocolate sushi plate, Kozara for around $15. This store is located in San Jose, where I imagine it draws quite the crowd.
This one is courtesy of stupid.com’s candy store. There isn’t a really great description of this candy- I think it’s hard candy? Besides, its also in miniature scale which oddly doesn’t do it for me. This little box of sushi fits in your palm- approximately the size of a deck of cards. I think koo-ki sushi spoiled me.
Well heavens, I’m glad someone has candysushi.com. It’s too tasty of a url to pass up! These are beautiful marzipan creations that are sold individualy or in sushi platter collections. For the rice component of the nigiri, CandySushi offers a choice of white chocolate clanketed coconut, crispy rice or Belgian dark chocolate. Notable in their offerings is the marzipan uni.
In the category of recipes for home is this simple and elegant recipe from the USA Rice Federation’s site. In particular the variation suggested for this recipe sounds tasty… using white chocolate of course! White chocolate coconut rice wrapped around kiwi and mandarin oranges, yum.
Now this looks like a doable recipe… sweet sticky marshmallowed rice crispies wrapped in fruit wrappers. Good gooey sugar high fun to nibble off of your fingers after making.
