April Fool’s Day fake food makes it fun to fool your friends and family with these sweet treats. That’s right, all of these are desserts…
My son HATES meatloaf, so this is the perfect dessert to serve him on April Fools’ Day! The meatloaf is made from Rice Krispie Treats! You can make your own treats using Cocoa Krispies, but I used the new store bought Double Chocolately Chunk Rice Krispie Treat bars (I found these at Target but you can get them at Walmart or Safeway too. I just pushed 2 bars together side by side (I removed some of the chocolate chunks) and then mixed some hot fudge and caramel sauce together to make “gravy” and poured that over the top of the treats.
For the mashed potatoes, I cut a cupcake in half and frosted it with vanilla frosting. I topped it off with yellow gel icing and a yellow Starburst candy.
Peanut Butter Potsickers with chocolate syrup dipping sauce make the perfect April Fool’s Day fake food. For a full tutorial click here.
Peanut Butter and Jelly never looked so… Italian? I just took 2 slices of potato bread (you can use any kind of bread, but potato bread has that yellow tint to it like ravioli) and put a little dollup of peanut butter in middle. Then press the bread together around the peanut butter and cut around it in a square with a pastry cutter or pizza cutter.I grated a little white chocolate on top and added green sprinkles. Strawberry jam is the “marinara” sauce.
Shrimp Mocktail – made of Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Treats and wrapped in fondant. I used strawberry perserves as mocktail sauce and added a little slice of candy lemon and fondant chives for garnish!
Shepherd’s pie? YOU LIE!! This April Fool’s Day fake food will fool anyone. That’s right I created these out of Cocoa Krispie Treats mixed with “carrot and peas” made out of taffy. Melt some marshmallows in a little butter, spread on top and broil for a few seconds. My hubby was totally fooled by this one! 🙂
Stump your friends with a dessert version of Chicken & Dumplings. Vanilla pudding, taffy made to look like peas and carrots, and diced angel food cake. The “dumpling” is angel food cake too!
