April Fools Treats

It's time for us to prepare our little April Fools Tricks.  Here are a couple of fun ideas.  What are some of your favorites?  Leave your comment!

Faux French Fries
Replace a classic salty snack with a little something sweet: Sugary Fake Fries.
1 package of plain, prepared bread stick dough
kitchen scissors
white envelope
seedless strawberry jam

1. Begin by unrolling the dough and separating the bread sticks.
2. Use kitchen scissors to cut them into ¼ -inch-wide sticks.
3. Roll all the sticks in sugar, then bake on cookie sheet according to package directions or until golden brown (approximately 8 min.) Leave them on the tray until they’re cool.
4. Put the “fries” into the cutoff end of a sealed envelope about 2 ½ in. deep.
5. Serve with a side of “ketchup”: seedless red jam whisked to a smooth consistency.

Chicken Nugget Chuckle

Your guest might not get the joke until their first bite! This recipe is for banana bites.

Peanut Butter
Honey Graham Crackers
Seedless Strawberry Preserves

1. Cut and shape banana slices into nugget shapes.
2. Cover with creamy peanut butter.
3. Coat with finely crushed honey graham cracker crumbs.
4. Serve with seedless strawberry preserves.

  3. I love this- everyone forgets about April Fools Day! One time we put a rock that looked like a potato on my dads dinner plate. I'll never forget it. I think he just played along, but it was hilarious all the same!

  4. What a fun memory. Sounds like you're well on your way to making some great ones of your own. Have fun!

As long as I'm on this journey, rambling through life's exhilarating highs and trudging heavily amongst it's incapacitating lows, I might as well share whatever may be gleaned from my little bits of wisdom and my many missteps. No room for judgment from this broken mama. I'm writing from my heart: raw, open, messy, but saved. And I'm still thanking God!
