One of the traditions in our home during Easter is to share an egg as a symbolic gift of life. We also decorate some eggs and make an Easter basket with a sampling of Easter eggs and other symbolic foods. While I was shopping a few days ago, I spotted a nice plate, perfect to display our Easter eggs. When my daughter saw it, she wanted to decorate eggs right away. I said that we still have a bit of time before Easter comes. She was so disappointed. To cheer her up a bit, I suggested we made something else from eggs – cute, little chicks. She loved the idea and helped me to prepare them. How yummy :)
- 2 eggs
- 4 mini carrots
- 1-2 tablespoons of creamy cheese (such as Philadelphia)
- 1 black olive
- orange cheese
Boil eggs for about 8-10min. When done, cool them with cold water. Cut both eggs in half and remove the yolk from both parts. In a bowl, mix the yolk with creamy cheese using a spoon.
Step2 Cut off ends of mini carrots to be used as the chicks’ beak. Make small dots from the black olive using a straw. Cut small, wavy shapes from the orange cheese to be used as chicks’ comb.
Step3 Using a spoon and your hands if needed, put the mixture from Step 1 inside the egg white. Make chicks-like shapes. Place carrots for the chicks’ beak, olives for eyes and cheese for combs. Enjoy!
