Polka dot Easter eggs


Huevos de Pascua de lunares/ Polka dot Easter Eggs

You sometimes ask me where I get ideas from, and the answer is very simple: I have two sources of inspiration at home. My two “muses” love stickers … whilst I am starting to hate them (the stickers!). Pablo is interested in home decorating: he covers walls, furniture, sofa, floor with sticks… Jorge in turn is more vain, and tends to decorate himself: face, hair … and often I get a surprise when changing his diaper.

So after months of removing stickers from unlikely places, I have finished removing sticks from hard boiled eggs to decorate them as polka dot Easter eggs… I suppose it was meant to be!

I will be posting more Easter ideas in future posts, but in the meantime I invite you to visit past Easter recipes, such as these brownies baked in eggshells

Summary:How to decorate easter eggs using stickers to create a polka dot effect

Ingredients

  • boiled eggs (white preferably)
  • water
  • white vinegar
  • food colouring
  • small round metallic stickers (not all stickers will work fine, that is why I suggest metallic ones, other types of stickers might not be removed as easily)

Directions:

  1. Boil eggs, and let them cool
  2. Once cold, place stickers on every egg until covered
  3. Fill a glass or bowl with water (3/4 capacity), add 1 tbs vinegar and mix well
  4. Add drops of food color until you like the hue
  5. Put hard boiled eggs in the glass, one by one (I use a tablespoon to put them in and take them out)
  6. Dry the eggs with a paper towel and remove the stickers inmediately (Metallic stickers can be reused several times)
  7. For a glossier effect, wipe the eggs with vegetable oil (using a paper towel)
  8. When properly stored (3-4 days in the fridge), these easter eggs can be safely eaten afterwards. I suggest you using them to prepare these delicious hard boiled egg cookies, which are my sons’ favorites right now!

    Hey There!
    Just wondering where you got the “Fresh Eggs” egg holder from? I have six chickens and need a place to store their eggs :)
