Faux French Fries
What's your Take?

This April Fools' Day, pull a fast one (or better yet, a fast-food one!) on your kids by replacing a classic salty snack with a little something sweet: sugary fake fries.

What you'll need

  • 1 package of plain, prepared breadstick dough
  • Kitchen scissors
  • Sugar
  • White envelope
  • Seedless strawberry jam

How to make it

  1. Begin by unrolling the dough and separating the breadsticks. Use kitchen scissors to cut them into 1/4-inch-wide sticks.

  2. Roll all the sticks in sugar, then bake them on a cookie sheet according to the package directions or until golden brown (ours took about 8 minutes). Leave them on the tray until they're cool.

  3. Make this mix-up even more fun by putting the fries in a fast-food fry sleeve (the cutoff end of a sealed envelope; ours was 2 1/2 inches deep) and serving them with a side of "ketchup" (jam whisked with a fork to a smooth consistency).
