Dessert Sushi: Recipe Preview from ‘Eat Like a Gilmore’


Thanks to everyone who entered to win a copy of Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls. It was SO exciting to be able to give away FIVE copies of the cookbook!! I have emailed the winners and posted them here.

Didn’t win the cookbook? Well, you still have time to order it! You can order it online and have it shipped to you before the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premiere. If you want even more lead time, you can also order the Kindle edition, to get started on your cooking prep right away. My Gilmore Girls Viewing Party (which YOU are invited to) will include at least one recipe from this book and I can’t wait to talk with all of you about the treats we’re munching on while we watch!

To kick things off, I am VERY excited to bring you an exclusive recipe feature from Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls by author & cook Kristi Carlson. Although the cookbook brings you the Gilmore classic “Fried Chicken Sushi,” it also includes my favourite: Dessert Sushi.

Dessert Sushi (Recipe from ‘Eat Like a Gilmore’)

Warning: The candy combinations in these dessert sushi rolls are not natural; it’s what makes them perfectly Lorelai. 


6 rolls of Fruit by the Foot®, any flavor (preferably different colors)
Marshmallow creme (Fluff recommended)
27 Red liquorice twists
54 Tootsie Rolls®
27 Butterfingers® Bites
27 Jujubes®
54 Chocolate chips
27 Junior Mints®

Prep rolls: Unravel 6 Fruit by the Foot rolls, and lay them out on a work surface. Cut each one into nine 4-inch lengths. Use a spatula to spread a thin layer of marshmallow creme on one half of each piece (2 inches of the piece will have marshmallow, 2 inches will be empty).

Make roll #1: On 27 of the 4-inch pieces, sideways across the marshmallow, place 3 pieces of licorice, cut to size, and 2 Tootsie Rolls. Roll each one, beginning at the marshmallow side. Trim any excess licorice. Place rolls on a plate. Set aside.

Make roll #2: On the remaining 27 4-inch pieces, place 1 Butterfinger Bite, 1 Jujube, 2 chocolate chips, and 1 Junior Mint. Roll each one, beginning at the marshmallow side. Place rolls on a plate. Serve.

Makes 27 pieces of each sushi roll type, 54 total.
