Every bunny of any age loves a good Easter egg hunt—but before the hunt comes a hearty brunch! We teamed up with our food stylist Elena to come up with the most appetizing and adorable Easter brunch treats: hatched chick deviled eggs, bunny pancakes and carrot scones.
Directions: After your eggs are hard boiled and peeled, cut a tiny bit off the bottom of each egg so it will “sit up”. Then, cut off the pointed “cap” from each egg and set it aside. At this time, use the extra yolks to make your favorite deviled egg mixture. Put a small rounded dollop on each “chick” body and top with the egg “cap”. We used very small pieces of black olive for the eyes and small pieces of orange bell pepper for the beaks. Wheat grass or dill will give the chicks a nice “nest” when displayed in the ceramic egg crate.
Directions: The batter dispenser (or pancake pen, as we like to call it) is a great way to make fun pancakes of any shape. For the bunnies, start by drawing a round body and then a smaller circle right on top of the body for the head. As you finish drawing the head, pull slightly on each side to create the ears. The “topper” is the bunny tail made from butter: cut very cold butter into 1/2-inch slices and carefully use the small flower (from the mini spring cookie cutter set) to cut out the bunny’s cotton tail.
Directions: The ceramic scone pan makes baking perfectly-shaped scones super easy. Use royal icing or colored candy lets to decorate your scones like carrots. If you don’t have a pastry bag for decorating, a resealable plastic bag works just fine. Load the bag with icing or candy melt (melted smoothly), seal up the bag, and snip a small tip off one corner. Drizzle side to side in a zigzag pattern for the orange body of the carrot, and add a few green squiggles for your green top.
