To Boil the Eggs:

Place eggs in a pot and cover them with cold water. Bring the water to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, lower the heat to low or where the water is at a low boil. Allow it to boil for 15 minutes. Turn the heat off, carefully drain the water, and run the eggs under cold water. Once the eggs are cool enough to handle, remove them from the pot, run the eggs under cold water, crack the shell, and peel it off.

  • Deviled Eggs from above
  • šŸ° Bunnies:Ā I made the bunnies using my pancake batter recipe and a bunny waffle maker, but you may make the bunny pancakes using a bunny cookie cutter to achieve this look.Ā 
  • A fruit medley:Ā I used small diced strawberries, small diced kiwi, halved or quartered blueberries.
  • Nest:Ā I mainly used shredded carrots with some shredded apples. I mixed the two, transferred it to the dish, and formed it into a ā€œnest.ā€ Then I added halved blueberries to make them look like ā€œeggs.ā€
