Coloring Easter eggs is a holiday tradition for people of all ages, not just for kids, but dying a bunch of hard boiled eggs isn’t the only way to have an egg-cellent easter. The following are five egg-centric recipes that are all fun and tasty ways to celebrate Easter with a little flair:
- Instead of buying all your Easter candy, you can make your own Peanut Butter-Stuffed Easter Eggs. You can find egg-shaped molds online, but you can also actually use plastic Easter eggs as inexpensive and easy-to-find chocolate molds to make these delicious and addictive treats.
- If you want to test your culinary skills, these White Chocolate Panna Cotta Eggs are an elegant dessert choice for Easter. Delicate white chocolate panna cottas are served inside hollowed out eggshells. It isn’t a difficult process, but topping and cleaning the eggs is delicate work. Fortunately, the results are well worth it.
- With a little bit of food coloring, you can use your egg decorating skills to make a batch of Easter Egg Pancakes. These pancakes have stripes and swirls of color – just like regular Easter eggs. This probably isn’t a great choice if you’re going to be hosting a big brunch and need to serve a crowd, but it is a wonderful option if you are going to be making breakfast for a few Easter-loving kids.
- Cadbury Creme Egg Muffins have a miniature Cadbury Creme Egg baked inside. The eggs end up as a sweet surprise right in the center of the muffin, and the creamy fondant centers seem to caramelize slightly as the muffins bake to become even more flavorful than they start out.
- One of the most dramatic things you can serve at an Easter brunch is this Easter Egg Braided Bread. The bread is a rich, challah-like loaf that is studded with brightly colored Easter eggs. The eggs are added to the bread when they are uncooked and they actually bake in the oven, so they are just as edible as the bread is by the time you serve your dish.
