Easter is just around the corner, last year we had so much fun making this adorable deviled egg bunnies! Why not try this adorable spin for your deviled eggs this year?
Deviled eggs are delicious, and usually a favorite for many, to take to any family gathering or cookout. But since it was our Easter together, I decided to add some cuteness to keep with the theme. So bunnies it was!
My kids had a fun time helping me count out all the ingredients (eyes, ears, noses, whiskers and eggs). And had a blast helping me make these little guys, so let your kiddos join in on the action too!
You will need:
- 12 hard boiled eggs (cooled and peeled)
- 1/3 cup mayo
- 3 tbsp of mustard
- 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1/4 tsp of ground black pepper
- Ground paprika for garnish
- 72 mini chocolate chips
- 1-2 celery stalks
- 1-2 carrot sticks
- Neon food dye
- Halve the eggs and carefully scoop out the yolks. The egg white halves you will want to divvi up and soak for roughly 10 minutes in a food dye/vinegar solution. The longer they soak the better and brighter the colors will be.
- Place all the yolks into a bowl and add the mayo, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mash and mix all these ingredients together until they are blended into a nice pasty substance. Place in the fridge for a few moments while you move along.
- Cut the carrot and celery sticks into smaller inch-long slivers and even smaller slivers for whiskers. You will need 48 of each. Once you are finished doing this you can have your little ones count them out two by twos and put them in pairs, as well as counting out the 72 mini chocolate chips by threes and grouping them together.
- While the kiddos are doing the counting, get the mixture back out of the fridge and the egg whites out of the dye. Since nobody I know ever has pastry bags on hand – just grab a ziplock bag and scoop some of the mixture into it. Cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners and voila!
- Pipe the yolk mixture into the egg white halves and sprinkle with a tiny bit of paprika. Then let your tots help you garnish the eggs with the chocolate eyes and nose, and alternating carrot and celery ears and whiskers.
