How to Make Easter Eggs in the Shape of Bunnies

I did this last year for Easter, but because of my blogging hiatus never got a chance to post it.  These aren't Easter eggs that you would hide, because the shell is removed, but its fun to make as part of an Easter meal.

I bought these egg molds from Amazon and am so happy with them.  Not only are they super cute, but because of the cute shape my daughter loves to eat her eggs.  The molds are meant to be used for eggs, but I've also used them to mold rice, and you could probably even make jello in them (small batch).

Making these bunny eggs are super easy, all you need to do is hard boil the egg, when the egg is cooked through, remove the shell (carefully because egg is hot), and then stick the egg into the mold.  You do want to do this when the egg is still warm or else it will break apart.  Some of the eggs I've made were perfect where the entire egg would take shape without excess, other times I would have to trim the excess sides.  Large eggs are the best size and old eggs are easier to peel than fresh eggs.

Here is the best way to make a hard boiled egg:

Place eggs in a pot large enough to cover them with at least one inch of room temperature water.

Bring the water to a full boil.  Remove from heat once the water boils. Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 15 minutes.

This is the best method I have ever found to make hard boiled eggs.  I never get that overcooked green rim around my yolk when I make eggs with this method.

Bunny eggs!

The set comes with both a bear and a bunny.

I used extra large eggs, so there was excess egg that I trimmed off.

This picture is so old of Avery last year shoving the egg into her mouth.
