Cat Poop Cookies For April Fools’ Day!

Anyone who’s been around for a while might suspect that April Fools’ day is somewhat of an anthem holiday over here on The Sunny Side. I delight in pranking those I love! This Cat Poop Cookie prank is not only gross, but it’s AMAZING and oddly one of the most delicious cookies you’ll ever eat.

The sweet girl in this photo is Emerson. One of my daughter’s best friends, Emerson is an avid baker and gets intoxicating levels of joy from taking people down on April Fools’ Day (a real soul-sister if you ask me). And who do pranksters love to prank most? Other pranksters, of course.

Emerson’s family and ours are nearly bound as one. We spend most Sunday evenings cooking dinner together—  sharing stories, wine, and laughs. I love each and every member of them with one exception: THE CAT!

Meet Cookie Dough. (His name even sounds evil.)

My one and only photo with Cookie Dough.

Cats are not nice people. They, hiss and purr, and SCRATCH PEOPLE’S EYES OUT! (I’ve heard this!) Cookie Dough and I don’t have the best relationship. When he comes near me he makes these dreadful sounds. It sounds like what I suspect it sounded like just before Jeffrey Dahmer went in for the kill.

They claim that’s the sound of a purr (eye roll)—I’m not taking chances.

Once when Emerson’s family was away on vacation, I was the unfortunate soul responsible to check in on Cookie Dough each day. Let him in, let him out. Remove any half-mutilated mouse or bird carcasses he may have dragged to the front door to display his unsavory death threats to me. As a good friend does, I followed through. I kept that cat alive.

I took videos of him licking himself and set it to inappropriate music.

I left loads of fake cat poop all through the house, including the new white sofas that had been delivered.

And I laughed and laughed and laughed.

Emerson loved this prank so much— her mother did not. Emerson’s school hosted a post-vacation Show & Tell for kids to highlight their vacations. Instead of showing off her braided hair, golden tan or tropical seashells that she smuggled into the country like a dirty thief…

SHE SHARED THE CAT POOP! I had never been so proud.

Last year April Fools’ Day fell on a Sunday. Our family gathered for dinner, sharing stories, wine, and laughs. Emerson made dessert. To my disgust, surprise, and delight, Emerson scooped me a heaping pile of cat poop from a little box with an evil, shall we say, sh&t-eating-grin on her face.

I had never been so happy to eat sh&t.

This Cat Poop Prank Recipe is boldly gross and impressively delicious. Litter your loved ones with laughs this April Fools’ Day. I promise they’ll love it!

    This looked way to realistic! I would have hurled! I’ve seen this done before with tootsie rolls on top and served with a small pooper scooper. This is a real fun idea and what a talented baker. Can’t wait for this year. (I don’t care for cats either. I’ll take my dogs any day)

    Best! Cookies! Ever!! I can’t tell you how much I laughed reading this. And then I immediately forwarded it to my 13-year-old niece and nephew, who both like baking, and who, I am sure, need to make this. They don’t have a cat, but they do have a dog. I think these would work just as well as dog poop.

    • The Sunny Side

      March 30, 2019

      Yes!!!! And they can totally delivery in doggy poop bags. Leave it on someone’s doorstep if you know what I mean!

    Kids love to cook–and the grosser sounding the better. Our library had a recipe book in the kids’ section with some similar recipes. The kids were so excited to make kitty litter casserole (with rice and sausage) and dirty dishwater punch. They checked that book out several times, and I suffered through their creations lol.

    OMG. This is so funny I am laughing so hard EXCEPT about the cat part. We just sat down after dealing with something crazy about a CAT. My husband’s uncle was hospitalized because his cat bit him and infected his arm so bad. Well, the same cat scratch my husband and caused an ugly wound. 🙁 This cat poop cookies looks so delish though.

    Every cat lovers will definitely enjoy this. Hahaha I did! Though I don’t usually see the poops of my cats because they are so good at burrying them in our garden. But this is such a great April Fools’ idea.
