These fun April Fools’ Day fries made from apples are sweet, not savory and kids love this nutritious fool food! Trick your family this April Fool’s Day with these sweet and delicious apple “french fries” served with strawberry preserve “ketchup” for dipping. It’s a tasty food prank the whole family will love!
I used Kiku apples for this fool fries recipe, not just because they are fun to say, but they are the perfect sweetness, nice and large for chopping, and hold up well when cooked. These guys look like apples on steroids. 😉
If you have trouble finding them at your local grocery store, you can always make a request with the store manager to carry them. Most store managers are great at honoring product requests.
You’d Never Know That These “French Fries” are made from Apples!
Using a crinkle cutter makes them look all the more deceiving.
Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar before baking in the oven.
These fries look like the real deal to me!
