I love April Fool’s! I remember getting some pretty crazy stuff in my lunchbox at school on this day every year. Green milk, raisins stuck in my apple, “moldy” bread… 🙂 Food is a fun way to trick someone- or maybe just to make them smile- on April Fool’s Day. We have shared many “tricky” recipes here on Easybaked, and I wanted to put them all in one place for you.
First up: Eggs and Bacon anyone?
When your kids sit down for breakfast, they will be delighted to find that these eggs are actually cookies! The toast is toasted pound cake and the bacon is, well, bacon… because salty and sweet. 🙂
If you want a funny, sweet way to kick off April 1, find the recipe here.
Breakfast not your thing? How about dinner on a cupcake?
Next up are our Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes!
The first time I made these, I set them down on the table and the kids were all like, “Ewwww!!!” because they thought I’d put actual spaghetti on a cupcake. Which is a *win* on April Fools 🙂
If you want a dinner laugh, find the recipe here.
And then there are the gross foods (like green milk- thanks mom!)
How about worms? You could add these to any food plate. We put them on cupcakes, but how fun would they be on a sandwich? Or in a salad? They are pretty realistic. These are no gummy worm.
You need to prepare ahead for these (they have Jello-O as an ingredient), but if you want to gross out your family, coworkers or friends, click here for the recipe.
You thought worms were gross?
How about poop? especially if you have a dog or cat, you *might* convince your kids that an accident happened right on their plate! Ewww…. 😂
These are actually delicious chocolate cookies… but when you pick one up to try it, you will add even more to the gross factor!
Want to add poo to dinner? The recipe is here!
If you are serving poo, you might want to add this fun little cake to the table too:
I made this TP cake in the height of the TP shortage of COVID, and it was deliciously funny 😂 If you want to give it a try, click here.
One last “gross” recipe 🙂 Imagine you accidentally cut yourself making these cupcakes- but decided to serve them anyway?
You’d have these Broken Glass Cupcakes! Get this gross, yet super tasty recipe here.
Finally, I leave you with a collection of “mini” treats. They won’t trick anyone, but they are so fun, I just had to add them to this post. Click on a picture to see the recipe! Hope you have a SUPER fun day playing tricks! 😊 ENJOY! ~r
