April Fool’s Day Breakfast

For April Fool’s Day this year I decided to make my kids a breakfast they would LOVE – ice cream sundaes and cookies!  The trick?  The “ice cream” was actually from my Dessert Bullet (the most wonderful kitchen tool and deserving of a post all it’s own), which means it was really just frozen fruit.  I added some strawberry sauce, crushed nuts and unsweetened coconut and it looked just like a “real” sundae!  The cookies were actually Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies which were such a hit even my husband said he now likes them better than the chocolate chip cookies.

If you ever have trouble getting your kids to the table for breakfast, I highly recommend serving this!  I’ve never seen them come running to eat as quickly as this!
