“I need to make an unusual dessert for French class homework,” our daughter announced the other night. “What can I make?”
“French class?” I asked reflexively, dumbly, before I could help myself.
“Yeah,” she said as if unusual dessert is a normal part of French class (she meant to say “like, duh?”), “What can I make?”
“Meringues?” I suggested.
She just looked at me as if I had said “cat food.”
“OK, let me think.”
“I want,” she said in that tone that 13-year-old girls must go to secret classes to learn, “to make candy sushi.”
“OK, why didn’t you say that?”
“I just did.”
5 cups Rice Krispies
30 gummi worms
1 package Fruit Rollups
1/4 cup butter
Melt the butter in a large pot over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and mix in Rice Krispies.
Spread a layer of warm Rice Krispies on a Fruit Rollup, place one or two gummi worms in the middle and roll tightly. Refrigerate until cold. Slice and enjoy.
