Deviled Egg Bunnies

Easter is upon us, and before you run out to the store to grab everything you need for the celebrations, consider jazzing up your deviled egg recipe by adding some bunny faces to them.

After the eggs had been hard-boiled and cooled, the cub got right into rolling and peeling them. It took a few tries until she understood how to roll them under her palm. On this particular day she woke up feeling like a princess, so, of course, she needed to dress the part.

Grandma DiDi then demonstrated how to cut them in half. With a little bit of help, the cub did an excellent job.

Grandma DiDi showed the cub how to pop the yolk out of the egg white. The cub watched intently.

She did it! Yay!

Now it’s the cubs turn. This took patience and practice.

One for you, one for me. The cub is always tasting the food we make.

Now for the additions to the deviled egg mix. The Cub and her knife skills went to work. Chopping the celery to add to the mix was easy.

This Cinderella princess is right at ease stirring up a batch of deviled eggs.

Pausing to smell the ingredients is a MUST. The cub helps us chop some dill for the deviled egg mix and I think we will also use some for whiskers.

Next up the cub chopped up some olives for the deviled egg bunny decorations. We think we will use them for eyes and maybe a nose!

We let the cub design her own, but for our finished product, Grandma DiDi took over the assembly of the bunnies.

HOPPY EASTER!
