Easter Fools

By Steph Hung

On April 1st treat your loved ones to a simple homemade breakfast.  There is nothing like a soft-boiled egg with a few pieces of bread to dip in the yolk.

Only this time there’s something a little special about the eggs:

Looks like the Easter Bunny decided to make an early delivery.

Materials you will need:  Eggs, powdered gelatin, egg cups (look for opaque cups or else the gig may be up), spoon, bowls, and a measuring cup.

Step 1:  Use the spoon to crack the bottom of the egg.

Step 2:  Carefully remove a small part of the shell, and empty contents into a bowl*.  Place the shell immediately into a bowl of hot soapy water.   After all the eggs are empty, thoroughly rinse the shells.

Step 3:  Prepare the gelatin – Mix each 85g box with just 1/2 cup of boiling water so the jelly will hold up when the eggshells are peeled.  Each box will fill 3-4 extra large eggs.

Step 4:  Allow jelly to set in the fridge for a few hours.  Take eggs out 20 minutes before serving so the temperature doesn’t give them away.

(*Make a quiche with the leftover eggs and you’ll REALLY impress your guests)

Happy April Fools Day!
