April Fools Vegetables

I love April Fools! This year we're in a bit of a time crunch, so I needed something easy, funny, and fast. This is what the kids think they're getting for dessert...
When they work up the nerve to take a closer look, guess what's inside?
April Fools Vegetables
Ingredients:
Vegetables (any that you can hollow out)
Candy (raid the pantry!)
Ziploc baggies (optional, if you have candies that are unwrapped)
Directions:
Carefully hollow out your vegetables and remove seeds, etc. I cut the bottoms off the cabbage and brussel sprouts then with a paring knife cut out the core. Place candy inside, put back together, and arrange on a plate. Serve as "dessert". April Fools! Use leftover veggies for soup or stir fry. Here's a video tutorial on getting the candy in the vegetables:
