Fakin' and Eggs

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

Ingredients

FOR THE EGGS:

  • 3 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 12 yellow M&MS

FOR THE FAKIN':

  • 1 square caramel
  • 1 Tootsie Roll Midgee

Instructions

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.
