Such a cute idea from the Paas Easter Egg folks. The original recipe used mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth, but I have used capers instead. You will need a small sandwich bag for this recipe. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Cook eggs about 10 minutes. Run cold water over to cool down quickly.
  2. Peel hard boiled eggs.
  3. Halve each egg lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a medium bowl, reserving the egg whites.
  4. Mash the yolks and add mayonnaise, mustard and cayenne; season with salt and black pepper.
  5. Fill yolk mixture into a small sandwich bag, cutting a small opening in the corner of the baggie. Gently squeeze the bag to pipe the yolk mixture into the egg white halves.
  6. Use the capers for the eyes and mouth.
  7. Cut the carrots and celery to make whiskers and ears(you can interchange them).

Too stinking cute!!! Made these tonight and it was kind of fun (like being a little kid again). I made half the batch called for. Mine don't look at all picture perfect... but our 1 yr old grandson "oogled" at them from below the counter top as Nana Rosie was trying to get a clear, bright photo, and then he devoured them as soon as I clicked the photo. The first 5 ingredients on the list are what I normally use in my deviled eggs (usually along with some minced up onion and soft bacon bits). So I used onion slices for the ears. I wish I would have had capers on hand for the eyes and nose, but I didn't so I had to improvise. (Eeewww, the thought of using mini chocolate chips in a deviled egg just made me shiver!) I used diced carrots for the nose and chives for the whiskers (no celery on hand either). On half of them I used bacon bits for the eyes (since I mix them into it anyways) and the rest of them I used diced jalapeno (hubby likes hot stuff). I will definitely be making this again for Easter. I'm even trying to brainstorm as to how I could make half of them look like baby chicks (maybe "fluffier" with a nicely carved carrot beak and celery heart leaves for feet protruding out?). LOL I think this recipe is very versatile and can be used to let your imagination go (be a kid again). Thank you for posting this recipe. It was so much fun to make.
