Pinterest Worthy Eggs

Growing up, my siblings and I rarely had junk food. My mom's idea of a treat was mixing corn flakes and rice krispies together (which I HATED). One year, on a hunt for Easter eggs, I gleefully plucked a pink egg out of the grass to find that they were filled with carrot and celery sticks. "Why can't we have regular candy like the other kids" I whined for about a week straight. My mom tried to appease me the next year by making Jello Easter eggs. At that time, I thought she was just as crazy but looking back, she was genius (don't tell her I said that).

While Jello Easter Eggs are super kid friendly (they even make Easter egg molds), you can take it in a sophisticated direction and make it pinterest worthy pretty. Here's a little recipe to make brunchy dessert eggs that can double as name cards for a bridal or baby shower. Here's what you'll need:

 

First, prepare your eggs:

Using a fork tine, poke a small hole at the top of your egg. Use food safe scissors to create a larger hole to empty your egg. Place eggs in a separate container and set aside for cooking later. Clean inside of the egg shell carefully with warm water and set in the original paper mache container to dry.
To make the jello, I snagged the recipe off the Kraft website:
1-1/4 cups  boiling water (Do not add cold water.)
1 pkg.  (8-serving size each) JELL-O Gelatin, any flavor
1/2 cup  cold milk
1 pkg.  (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla or Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding

1. In a bowl, add the boiling hot water to the jello powder. Mix and leave to cool to room temperature, about 1/2 hr
2. 5 minutes before the jello mixture has cooled, make your pudding mixture. Add the milk to the pudding, stir until thickened and evenly mixed.
3. Add the pudding to the cooled jello mixture.
4. Stir until thoroughly mixed and it's a beautiful creamy consistency!
Now, fill your eggs using a container with a spout for easier pouring:
While the eggs are solidifying in the fridge, create your eggs holders by taking strips of paper and stapling or taping to create a ring:
Peel the top portion of the egg shell off and add a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream. Top with berries of your choice. You can also use a sharpie to write the names of your guests and place each one at their place setting.
HAPPY BRUNCHING!!!

    It looks appetizing. What else can one use instead of Jell.
