I saw this Pinterest pin  about making brown paper brown E’s for an April Fool’s Day Joke and I built on that idea to create a 3 step Brown E’s prank. ‘Cause any April Fool’s prank is more fun with brownies!

April Fool’s Day Prank with Brownies

It all starts with this E cookie cutter.  And look, it’s Made in the USA!

Supplies

E Cookie Cutter from The American Cookie Cutter Company Letter E Cookie Cutter 

Brownies – Homemade or store bought will work equally well.

Brown Card Stock or Construction Paper

Line a 9 by 13 inch baking pan with foil and bake a batch of brownies.  When they’re completely cooled, use the foil to remove the brownies from the pan.  The cut as many Brownie E’s from your brownies as you can.

 Using the cookie cutter, cut a bunch of brown E’s from construction paper.

 Cut the brownies left over after you used the cookie cutter into tiny little squares. A lot of these will already be cut for you from the space between the arms of the E cookie cutter.

Put each version of brownies on a plate and cover each plate with a cloth napkin. Ask your family if they’d like some brownies for a treat. First remove the napkin from the brown paper E’s. Hee hee hee. April Fool’s!

  1. Such a cute idea and something that I would pull on my family! I have made April Fools Day breakfast for my family using pound cake as toast! Love to play fun pranks on my family!

  2. “Brown E’s” – this is the kind of pun even the youngest kid will think is hilarious. I suppose for a preschool child they will learn what the letter E looks like and the color brown.

    1. Pam, I hadn’t thought of that. It’s not a prank, it’s an educational opportunity for learning your letters!

    1. I like to tease my kids. They’d be disappointed if they only got to have 1 or 2 tiny brownies. After the tiny squares, I pull out the big E brownies and everyone is happy. Glad you asked, Gabby. Have a fun April 1st.

  5. This is too cute! I can totally see my youngest doing this “prank” on her dad. Going to show her this.
