I never like to cook dinner on Fridays, so I often opt for picking up sushi on my way home from work. Although sushi isn’t in my top 3 (as previously mentioned) it is a favorite that I never seem to get sick of.

I had been wanting to try this recipe for weeks, but had some serious trouble finding all of the ingredients. I’m pretty sure I scoured every grocery store, deli, and Duane Reade in Manhattan trying to find the “seaweed”, and was only successful when I went out to the suburbs for the weekend to visit my family. 

My younger sister helped me with these mini-cupcakes, building an assembly line so we could get them done and not spend our whole Sunday in the kitchen. From sorting a box of Nerds, to chopping up a large assortment of candy, and actually wrapping each piece of “sushi”, let’s just say once these were done we spent the rest of the day on the couch.

If it takes the people who make my sushi anywhere near as long as it took me to make these, god bless them.
