There's something about a road trip and sweet things that go so well together. Driving can be tiring. A sweet little munch along the way can boost that flagging blood sugar.
These Rice Krispie "sushi" squares are great because they pack and travel well and last a long time without going stale. (seal in a Ziploc bag to keep them on the soft side). They are also gluten-free (if that is your thing). There is a bit of nutrition in the Rice Krispies too. They are also a real novelty - would be a great thing to take to a rally potluck.
They look complicated but they aren't. All I did was make the traditional Rice Krispie square recipe you see on the box. I then added some grated candied ginger to give it some Asian/Japanese flair. (Ginger is also good for motion sickness). Then I rolled it out to a sheet and laid some green-coloured fruit rollups on top for the "nori." I then placed the filler ingredients down one edge, rolled it, and sliced into these two-bite rounds. This is a "California Roll." The "crab" is marshmallow, the "avocado" is a green jelly, and the "sweet potato" is a lemon jelly.
Do you have a sweet road-trip recipe you would like to share?
