“Faux” recipes for April Fool’s Day from FamilyFun


What better way to fool your friends this April Fool’s Day then with a few deceptively delicious tricks?! FamilyFun Magazine has two “faux” recipes to celebrate April’s Fool’s Day in good taste.

FamilyFun’s “faux cookie dough dip” has the texture and flavor of homemade cookie dough, but it’s actually a dip in disguise. Also be sure to try the “tease cheese platter” where cookies and candy chews stand in for the traditional savory snack.

Check out the April Fool’s Day recipes below!

Faux cookie dough dip

Ingredients:
Chickpeas
Brown sugar
Peanut butter
Oats
Milk
Vanilla
Salt
Baking soda
Chocolate chips
Apple slices

Directions:

In a food processor, blend 11/2 cups chickpeas, 6 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter (we used a natural, unsweetened variety), 3 tablespoons oats, 1 tablespoon milk, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and baking soda. Fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips. Serve with apple slices or other fresh fruit. When snack time is over, tell your kids they are now full of beans!

Tease cheese platter

Ingredients:

Vanilla sandwich cookies
Sugar Sprinkles
Fruit chews

Directions:

To make the crackers, pull apart several vanilla sandwich cookies. Leave the filling intact and scatter green sugar sprinkles on half the pieces. Scrape away any filling from the others. For the cheese, soften white and orange fruit chews (we used Tootsie Fruit Rolls) in the microwave for a few seconds, then shape into cubes or roll the candy flat and use a knife to trim it into rectangles. Form the holes with a small cookie cutter or piping tip.

    I think the Tease cheese platter is very funny. And aptly named.
