Fakin’ and Eggs… For Dessert???

I’m not much of a prankster. It’s not that I don’t think they’re funny. I just don’t do them. Well, not a lot at least =o) So for me, April Fools Day isn’t really a big deal. But it’s like I said in my St. Patrick’s Day post, “now that I’m a Mom I have to holiday it up, right?” So what better way to celebrate April Fool’s Day than with these awesome Fakin and Eggs! Even you non bacon eating folks out there can make/eat these!

And who doesn’t love fun food? We’re kinda crazy about it. It all started back with our candy sushi and it’s gone a little crazy since them.

Where did I find this fantastic inspiration? Did I make it up? Um, seriously, no. I got it from…. where…. you guessed it, Family Fun! I love that site!


They were super easy to make and my kids freaked out when they saw them!

The eggs were super easy. You’ll need:
* white chocolate chips (or chocolate bark of some sort)
* yellow M&Ms

For the bacon you’ll need:
* caramels (one for each strip of bacon)
* and mini Tootsie Rolls (one for each bacon strip)

Here’s how you make the bacon….

What do you think? They look like bacon and eggs don’t they?

I tried to take a picture of my kids enjoying them but they wouldn’t stop chewing long enough for me to take a picture. They loved them!

Now we’re off to find more fun food for April Fool’s Day…..

I’m joining the linky parties on my sidebar. Come join us!
