This Christmas prank will have your family in stitches

Katie Mythen-Lynch

It’s traditionally a time for good cheer, so what better week to raise a few giggles with a clever Christmas prank? 

One clever trickster has come up with one of the funniest festive tricks we’ve seen… chocolate covered Brussels sprouts!


Whether you try it out on your in-laws or the kids, this one’s guaranteed to have everyone in stitches.

In fact, it’s so effective it’s been shared more than two million times after it was posted on Imgur.

All you need is some time (we’ve all got a bit of that, right?), a few raw sprouts and a box of delicious Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Dip the sprouts in melted chocolate and leave in the fridge to harden.
  • Eat ALL the Ferrero Rocher, then use the empty wrappers to carefully wrap the chocolate-covered sprouts.
  • Pop them back in the box. Proffer them to your loved ones and watch them bite into a lovely miniature cabbage.

‘Tis the season!
