April Fools – Delicious chocolate pranks

Like many chocaholics around the world, at Delysia we take the subject of chocolate fairly seriously. However, on April 1, all bets are off. When it comes to April Fool’s Day, few items are as prank-worthy as chocolate in its various forms. It’s precisely because chocolate is such a beloved and innocent pleasure, that messing with someone`s chocolate can be so effective – and fun. We combed the Internet and compiled a list of 8 great foolproof chocolate pranks:

1. How Green was my Cupcake

Make a batch of chocolate cupcakes. Prior to baking, drop Brussels sprouts into the center of the batter.

2. An Oreo that Keeps the Cavities Away

Unscrew an Oreo (or similar chocolate cookie). Replace the cream center with sparkling white toothpaste.

3. Talk about Runny Yolks

Since April 1rst coincides with Easter, there are plenty of chocolate eggs around. Make a small hole in the bottom of an egg and then fill the hollow interior with mustard yolks (and mayonnaise whites).

4. There’s a Finger in My Pudding

Punch a hole in the bottom of a plastic chocolate pudding container. Stick your finger up through the pudding and serve.

5. Truffles that Will (Literally) Make you Tear Up

Make a batch of chocolate truffles with chocolate covering deliciously pungent shallots.

6. Who’s Been Messing with my M&M’s?

Sow chaos by mixing look-alike Skittles in with a bowl of chocolate-filled M&Ms.

7. Pop Goes the Chocolate Cake

Cut the top of a pasta or cereal box. Press a blown up balloon into the open box, firmly tape it down and cover with a thick layer of chocolate icing. Serve with a (very sharp) cake knife.

8. Time for a Relaxing Chocolate Shower

Unscrew the shower nozzle and fill it with cocoa powder. Then suggest that someone take a nice hot shower.

Finally, shocks, surprise sand laughs aside, there are few things in life as frustrating as having one’s enjoyment of chocolate thwarted. For this reason we recommend that the execution of chocolate pranks be followed by presenting the prank victim with the real thing: delicious, sustainable, hand crafted Delysia chocolate truffles, chocolate bark, and molded chocolate that only a(n April) Fool would refuse.
