Kidzworld Kitchen: Easter Eggs Galore

Mar 10, 2016

It’s the season for eggs and chocolate! Greet this fun spring holiday with some cute and unique recipe ideas. 

Devilled eggs are a classic snack that also make a great appetizer or breakfast. Give them a festive pastel facelift for the holidays with a bit of food coloring that will make a fun addition to any table.  Feel free to re-use this same idea with different colors for other occasions and sporting events.

The no-bake Easter nests are cute as a dessert, gift or can even be used as an imaginative place card at Easter dinner. Neatly write the names of dinner guests on slips of paper, tape a toothpick to the back and stick into the nests. Voila! Change them up and personalize by filling with your favorite candies, chocolates or even a marshmallow chick.
