Egg Chicks

Easter Egg Chick - Simple and So Cute!

I came across this recipe the other day and said “I can make that!” Not only was it super cute and simple, it fit into my very limited time schedule. Hooray.

So if I can make these, you can too. Or have your kids jump in and join in the fun!

Cut a zig zag pattern about a third of the way down. Blame the fuzzy photo on Captain Cavedweller, please.

Separate the top from the bottom.
Carefully remove the yolk. If you aren't careful, you'll end up with a mangled egg that looks like a fox has been in the henhouse. And you really don't want that. Nope. Not at all.
Mix up your filling.
Fill the bottom of the egg.
Ready for the top and the finishing touches.
Cute Little Egg Chick

Egg Chicks

12 hard-cooked eggs

1/2 cup mayonnaise (do not use salad dressing, repeat – do not use salad dressing)

1/4 cup Ranch dressing

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 stuffed olives

Peel eggs then cut a thin slice from the bottom of each one so it will stand upright. Cut a zigzag pattern about a third of the way down from the top of each egg. Carefully remove yolks. If you do not carefully remove yolks, your egg will appear mangled like mine. Please, don’t be like me.

Mash yolks in a bowl and add mayo, Ranch dressing and salt. Spoon into bottoms of egg, replace tops.

Cut olives into thin slices for eyes and use pimento pieces for beaks. Gently press into filling. Chill until ready to serve.


Happy Easter Entertaining!
