How to serve Candy Sushi at a party

Serving up the candy sushi on small cutting boards with legit chopsticks will make a party come together quickly. I love the idea of having each place setting set up with a similar style, or set one long sushi board across the table (like this), but with candy instead obviously.

Another fun party idea is to purchase cute little to-go boxes and send home the candy sushi as party favors at the end of the night. Here’s a set of the chopsticks and boxes to complete the look.

These would also make such a fun April Fool’s Day prank for the kids to create that the entire family would get a kick out of.

Really anyway you serve up the sweet sushi is a win.
