Quick & Easy “gotcha” Spaghetti & Meatballs

By  | 


This concept for “gotcha spaghetti and meatballs” has been something I’ve used for years.  Recently, though, I have discovered its source.  So, I won’t give you the play by play tutorial.  I will simply let you go to the big dawgs.

I’ll just say…
It’s easy.
It’s fun.
It’s a disgusting mess of frosting, cake, and candy.
Which I don’t like. (mean mom)
But my kid’s love.

Here is the link to Family Fun’s page.

(theirs looks a whole lot better than mine!)

Have a great April Fool’s Day!
I’m off to spend the weekend with my kids!
