Easter Recipes


Confetti Eggs

{From Oh Happy Day}
Dye {we use vinegar and food coloring}
Confetti {we use fruity pebbles cereal}
Tissue paper
Sewing needle

1. Using your sewing needle, poke a small hole at the top of an egg.
2. Open a larger hole at the larger part of the egg.
3. Use a toothpick to stir up the yolk and then let it drain out of the larger hole into a bowl.
4. Rinse the egg shell and allow to dry. Repeat with remaining eggs and use the yolks to make scrambled eggs.
5. Use dye to color the egg shells and allow to dry again.
6. Fill each egg about halfway with confetti.
7. Cut a piece of tissue paper to cover the larger hole and secure with glue.
