Chocolate Sushi!

By Shamus

Filed under:


Sent out some geeky Christmas treats to some friends. Didn’t want to post these images until they’d arrived.

First, some cookies:



But the real fun is the Sushi:


The insides are white chocolate and coconut. (But a few were made with white chocolate and rice crispies. We experimented a lot.) The orange bits are dried mango. The seaweed is some kind of fruit by the foot, covered in dark chocolate with a little green dye.

These were fun to make, and probably a more suitable gift than mailing out raw fish.

    Good for those with seafood allergy

    Ooh! Those are excellent. My wife isn’t big on seafood, but these might make fun treats.

    Did you chocolate-coat the fruit by the foot yourself? If so, I’m guessing you wrapped first, then chocolate coated…

    Dang, now I want to make something like this!

    I like the fish-shaped dried mango, but it does give me the impression that either whoever made them had never had actual sushi (less likely) or they just wanted to really sell the impression that “this is supposed to be fish” and to hell with the details (more likely). I’d love to see a recipe for this, anyway.

    My son has a recipe for sushi in his Twinkie Cookbook. Involves dried fruit, fruit roll-ups and (of course) Twinkies.

    I did this a couple years ago. I made a bunch of green brownie batter (a St. Patrick’s day recipe) and poured it into a pan that I’d set a bunch of tall, skinny shot glasses inside of. The batter pours around them leaving holes. After they finished cooling I pulled the glasses out and then stamped around them with a cookie cutter so I was left with a brownie ring and not a lot of wasted “brownie holes”.

    I filled the insides with buttercream frosting and then stabbed slices of chocolate and caramel into the center so it would look a little like a california roll.

    It looked less like sushi than yours did, but holy crap did they taste good.

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I totally squeeed over this. So incredibly cool and nerdy! (And tasty…just ate a Starman cookie. Much yum.)

    Nice. I especially like the looks of those ghost cookies.

    Dangit, now I’ve got an inexplicable and random hankerin’ for some cheap grocery-store iced cookies. It will pass once I remember how disgusting those actually are, appearance aside.

    I don’t like sushi, so i just lost my appetite when you said it was weird lookin-sushi sweets!!! Lol, still very clever of you, hope everyone is enjoyin their holidays so far! :D

    A restaurant I went to a couple years ago had a little buffet in it that was part of the meal. One of the things I saw was what appeared to be tuna rolls. I love sushi, and tuna, so I grabbed a few.

    That wasn’t tuna. Was actually strawberries. It really was quite tasty. Unless you thought it was tuna and put some soy sauce on it. Like me.

    these are so incredibly cool I can hardly contain myself :D in fact, I’ve sent the link to a bunch of friends, so I guess I didn’t really contain myself ;)

    seriously, just so cool and dang creative!
