Boil a few extra eggs to make these Easter treats. / Ed Judice
It’s springtime, and the April issue of FamilyFun magazine has some clever ways to diversify your Easter eggs. While you’re hard-boiling eggs for dyeing and decorating, add a few extras to create these sweet-faced critters. Just peel off the shells to begin.
Hoppy Hare. Cut a slice from the side of an egg so that it sits flat. Insert two flat carrot slice ears and chive whiskers. Stick on a carrot triangle nose and black sesame seed eyes.
Pretty-in-Pink Rabbit. Two days before you plan to serve the eggs, open a jar of pickled beets and replace the beets with peeled hard-boiled eggs. Completely submerge the eggs and place the jar in the refrigerator. After two days, drain the eggs and pat them dry. Cut and assemble the eggs as shown here. Add a carrot triangle nose, chive whiskers and black sesame seed eyes.
