I enjoy April Fools’ Day and a good harmless joke. This year I’ll be playing a 3-part harmless April Fools’ Day prank with brownies on my family. Shhh, don’t tell. This one is a fun April Fool’s Day prank to play on your kids since it ends up with brownies.
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!
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!
Next remove the napkin from the tiny brownies.
Lastly remove the napkin from the Brown E’s brownies. Yea! Now this is an April Fool’s Day prank that will bring laughs and cheers.
You should get some laughs by dragging out the 3 step brown E’s brownies and presenting them with a flourish.
How fun (and tasty) are brownie E’s?!
