April Fools’ Day Fun!
Whether you call it April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day, April 1 has traditionally been the day for playing tricks on people.
It is said that in some countries, they celebrate by throwing flour in their friends’ faces. We’re all for a good bit of trickery, but that just seems like a bad idea.
Put your flour away and try out these recipes on your family. The kids will get a kick out of ’em, and they’re yummy so the whole family will enjoy them.
“Dough Toes” for Breakfast? Yes, depending on what you consider appropriate breakfast food. These gross-looking toes are actually breadsticks with gnarly almond “toe nails,” served with peanut butter dip. It’s not every day you can tell your kids to dip their toes into the peanut butter (on second thought, maybe you’d better not suggest that at all).
INGREDIENTS (Makes about 6 servings)
1 (11 oz.) roll refrigerated breadstick dough
32 sliced almonds
1 egg white
⅓ C. peanut butter
⅓ C. honey
¼ C. tiny pieces cut from marshmallows
Unroll breadsticks. Using a sharp knife, cut into stubby toe shapes, rounding the edges as desired. Place “toes” on the prepped baking sheet. Using kitchen shears, snip the dough gently in a few places where the knuckle will be.
Break the almonds in half crosswise and place each half near one end of each toe, broken edge facing out for the toe nails. Press them into the dough so they stay in place while they bake. Whisk the egg white and brush over each toe. Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until done.
Meanwhile, stir together the peanut butter, honey, and marshmallow pieces. Serve with Dough Toes.
