1 funny snack time treat

Are you the kind of Mom that loves to laugh and be a little sneaky? Hee hee, I don’t know about you, but I plea the 5th! Okay, so the cat is out of the bag—I am a big fan of April Fools and especially harmless pranks that make everyone giggle. A few years back I had a great time coming up with a healthy food trick  for snack time. What I made looked like a cupcake. It was so much fun seeing the kids excitement, wide eyes, and big bites! After taking a bite or two, they cocked their heads to the side and squinted their eyes trying to make sense of what their eyes beheld and their tastebuds were telling them. They tasted…potatoes…and…meat, not cake and frosting. They looked at me like I was a crazy woman, so I took that as my cue and sang out, “April Fools!!” Hahaha Success!! I, the crazy lady, made meatloaf and mashed sweet potatoes in the form of a cupcake—and they totally fell for it! It was awesome. 😉 After that they had to take a few to the neighbors to pay it forward. To this day it is one of their most favorite “treats” to give on April Fools. So, if you are looking for something fun to do and you want to keep it healthy try these meatloaf cupcakes. Get your camera ready and snap some pics of those kids trying out their tasty treat! Then post some pics of their reactions! I can’t wait to see them, mwa ha ha. What other healthy food pranks have you done? Comment with your ideas and I’ll use one for my family and post pics of their reactions! Happy April Fools all you Mamas!

p.s. Here is a great link I found on pinterest for pranks to pull on your husband! I may have to try some of these…
