Deviled Egg Chicks

Easter Deviled Egg Chicks

These adorable deviled egg chicks are perfect for a spring tea party or an Easter potluck. They do take some time because you have to be careful cutting and handling the “cracked” eggs, but they look precious and will impress friends and family.

YOU NEED:
6 hard boiled eggs*
1/4 heaping cup mayo
1 heaping tsp yellow mustard
a dash of salt

*Everyone seems to have their own way of hard-boiling eggs, so hard boil however you want.

While the eggs are boiling, cut small wedges of carrot for the chick’s beak.
You can do one large wedge or two smaller wedges, like I did.
When eggs are done and you’ve removed the shell, take a small knife and created a 
jagged edge, each about a centimeter tall. Then, handling the egg halves very carefully, 
remove the yolk and set aside in a medium sized bowl. I used a small icing spreader 
instead of a spoon.
Mash dry yolks and mix with mayo, mustard and salt. Combine until smooth. Using a 
zip lock baggy as a frosting bag, cut a very small amount off the corner of the bag. 
A frosting tip is not necessary. Place the frosting tip end-down in a coffee mug and fold 
the edges of the bag around the side. This will make it easier to spoon the yolk mixture 
into the bag. Scoop the mixture into the bag, press out all the air and seal.
Place the heavier half of the egg in the egg carton. Fill the egg with a large amount 
of the yolk mixture. The top half of the egg may squish the yolk mixture, so be sure 
to use the heavier half of the egg on the bottom and use enough of the yolk mixture to 
create a gap about a few centimeters long. Top with the lighter half of the egg, and place carrot wedges to look like a beak. Voila!

    These are precious! I didn’t realize you’d made them yourself. I’m so glad I took a closer look. Maybe I’ll make them for my class at school before Easter break. They’d love them!

    When I first looked at the pic, I thought the carrot pieces were pimentos.
    I love the concept! I think I’d try using 6 pimentos out of the green olive jar. It would seem easier, and they are already shaped like an open ‘beak’.

    I used black sesame seeds for eyes.
