Need A Prank? *Recipe*

Are you still searching for a way to pull a fast one in honor of April Fools' Day? You family or friends will get a kick out of these "cupcakes" I found in Family Fun Magazine. Surprise: you won't find one grain of sugar in this "dessert"!


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • Food coloring
  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full).
  3. Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow and pink pastel frostings. Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake.
Makes 12 cupcakes
