Monday Make-Itz

Let's make a fun recipe for:
APRIL FOOLS DAY

When my kids were little, they always loved to
'celebrate'  April Fools Day by playing a few jokes on their
'unsuspecting' mom. Lots of laughs throughout the day!

There are many fun recipes that mimic real food
to 'fool' your family. Here is a fun one from Family Fun Magazine:

Fried Marshmallow Eggs

There's no chance of breaking the yolks when you cook up these eggs. That's because they're actually dried apricots -- a tangy complement to the sweet marshmallow egg whites.

What you'll need

  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 2 dried whole apricots

How to make it

  1. Place a piece of aluminum foil on a flat working surface and then grease the surface of the foil with 1 teaspoon of the butter.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the second teaspoon of butter over low heat. As soon as it has melted, add the marshmallows to the pan and turn up the heat to medium-low. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until the marshmallows are completely melted and have just started to bubble.
  3. Fried Marshmallow Eggs Step 3Immediately remove the pan from the heat and spoon the melted marshmallow, in 2 separate blobs, onto the greased foil. You have to work fast, before the marshmallow begins to solidify again. TIP: When spooning the melted marshmallow onto the greased foil, work quickly, using the back of the spoon to spread out the "egg white" a bit.
  4. Fried Marshmallow Eggs Step 4Shape 2 dried whole apricots and gently press each one, rounded side up, into the center of a marshmallow blob. TIP: To make a dried apricot look just like a dome-shaped egg yolk, use your thumbs to push the center of the fruit until it is concave.
  5. Fried Marshmallow Eggs Step 5When the marshmallow has set enough to hold together, but before it stiffens too much, use a spatula to transfer the eggs to a breakfast plate. TIP: Once the candy eggs have set, insert a plastic spatula beneath each one and, at the same time, use your fingers to gently peel the marshmallow from the foil.
