  1. I made a chocolate covered Brussels sprout/cake pop and put it on a plate with regular cake pops. I’ll never forget my granddaughter’s face when she bit into it. 😂😂😂

  2. I taped the paper towels so if you try to pull one off it sticks. You should try it. It is easy to do.

  3. When my daughter was in grade school, I put plastic ants in her PB&J sandwich… but she never knew… whoops! Hope it was food safe plastic they were made of…!

  4. One year I made “cookies.” I shaped mashed potatoes and black beans to look like chocolate chip cookies and baked them a little so they would hold their shape. I then baked some real cookies for the smell and hid those. After dinner I handed out the potato black bean cookies and everyone was so excited until they bit into it. The looks on their faces were priceless. I have never been able to top that April Fool’s joke.
