A Fool's Dinner

Click to enlarge Do your kids balk when it comes to eating their peas and carrots? With this meal, they're in for a sweet surprise.

Time needed: Under 1 Hour

What You Need:

  • Peanut butter log candy
  • Peas-and-carrots candy mix
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Caramel or butterscotch topping

What You Do:

  1. On each dinner plate, arrange four or five peanut butter logs (to look like chicken nuggets) and a small handful of the candy mix (for vegetables).

  2. Right before serving, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt to each plate for "mashed potatoes." Top with gravy -- a spoonful of caramel sauce or butterscotch topping.
