Asparagus Dessert, April Fools' Food Prank

April Fools Day is around the corner. Do you pull pranks on your friends and family?
 Do you know anyone who totally dislikes asparagus and veggies in general ? I put together a delicious dessert for everyone to enjoy after a tasty dinner. Why not prank your guests with this sweet a delicious take on roasted asparagus with b├ęchamel sauce. Except they are sugar cookies drizzled with white chocolate ganache.

To Make Asparagus Dessert you Need:

To make the asparagus stalks:
Sugar Cookie Dough- my favorite
Food Colorings - to color the dough, I used green and yellow to get the nice Spring green color
Food Coloring-  to paint the stalks, brown and purple
Water to dilute food coloring
Baking Sheets - my favorite
Small dropper(optional)
Paint Brush( used with food only)

White Chocolate Ganache Recipe
1cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream
Coconut Flavoring(optional)

Heat the heavy cream until little bubbles form around the edges. Pour ganache over chocolate chips, Cover with a paper towel and a plate, let sit for 3 minutes. Whisk with metal whisk until smooth, add flavoring if using. Chill until ganache thickens. Can be made days ahead. It if gets too firm, microwave for several second until pourable again. Enjoy.

Toppings :
Almonds (optional)
