April Fools is a very special day for me. Not only is it the day where you can be a naughty (but still nice) prankster for 24hrs….it is also my mom’s birthday. So she does not usually get a trick played on her (always) but we do remind her of the funny coincidence.
This year my mom might get a surprise trick at the dinner table though. The folks over at the California Walnut Commission have come up with a great recipe for a trick. It is a dessert made to resemble as a cappuccino. This Faux Cappuccino is one of 100s of amazing recipes with walnuts found on their website. I just might make this one on April Fools day. One lucky winner will win a sample bag of California walnuts and that is no joke. Just check the entry rules at the bottom of the post.
