Fakin' and Eggs
What's your Take?

On April Fools' Day, trick your family with a tiny breakfast that's really a cleverly disguised dessert.

What you'll need

  • FOR THE EGGS:
  • 3 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 12 yellow M&MS
  • FOR THE FAKIN':
  • 1 square caramel
  • 1 Tootsie Roll Midgee

How to make it

  1. For the eggs: Melt the white chocolate chips according to the package directions. Transfer the melted chocolate to a ziplock bag and snip off a corner.

  2. Squeeze nickel-size portions of the chocolate onto a sheet of waxed paper, then gently press a yellow M&M, letter side down, into the center of each. Let the candies cool. Makes 12 eggs.

  3. Fakin' and Eggs Step 3

    For the fakin': Remove the wrapping from a square caramel and a Tootsie Roll Midgee. Microwave the candies for 4 seconds to make them soft. Use your thumb and forefinger to slightly flatten each candy piece, then press them together.

  4. Fakin' and Eggs Step 4

    Halve the candy, then stack and press the pieces into alternating layers.

  5. Fakin' and Eggs Step 5

    Slice a 1/4-inch-wide piece from the stack. Pinch and stretch the piece lengthwise into a flat bacon strip, then cut it in half. Add ripples to each half by gently bending the edges. Makes 3 strips (6 pieces).
