Frushi—say what?! Strawberry and banana fruits fill these sushi rolls, with crispy rice treats serving in place of traditional rice. No soy sauce needed—chocolate hazelnut spread is rolled into the “sushi roll” for a tasty dessert totally not found on your traditional Japanese menu.

‘Frushi’ with Strawberries and Bananas
Serving: 6 1” pieces.

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 ounces marshmallows
3 cups puffed brown rice cereal
2 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread
4 large strawberries, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 large bananas, peeled
1 teaspoon chopped pistachios
1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
Cooking spray

1. Melt butter over medium-low heat; stir in vanilla. Add marshmallows, and stir until melted. Add cereal; toss well to combine. Line a shallow jelly roll pan with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray. Press marshmallow mixture into a ½” layer in a rectangle- Let cool.

2. Cut rice treat in half lengthwise. Spread chocolate hazelnut spread in a thin layer on marshmallow mixture. Divide strawberries and lay flat vertically in the middle of both sides of the rice treat and lay bananas lengthwise on top of the strawberries.
