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.


Faux cookie dough dip




Brown sugar

Peanut butter





Baking soda

Chocolate chips

Apple slices



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!
