Hard Boiled Egg Chicks

Hard Boiled Egg Chicks are super creative and  healthy. Get your kids involved in the process and make it also a super fun idea. Try adding some veggies, this time I made my egg chicks with chopped carrots.  You can try so many different combinations: squash, zucchini, cauliflower, peas, carrots, beets, or your favorite vegetables. Use your creativity!

These hard boiled egg chicks are perfect for a kid’s party or just as a snack or side dish. It is also great for picky eaters because you can mix in some veggies.  They are super easy to make and taste so yummy.  In less than 20 minutes you can make adorable egg chicks.

You just need to boil your eggs and your favorite veggies for about 10 minutes and then it is just a matter of decoration. Simple and fresh ingredients.   Look at the picture below, aren’t they adorable?  You can use raisins, currants, or nuts for the eyes.  This time I used pieces of roasted pistachios.

My son was super excited about this idea and helped me decorate the Hard Boiled Egg Chicks.  After you cook the eggs, you need to remove the  yolks and mix them with a little mayo, salt, and veggies (if you are using any).  then place them back into your eggs and decorate. Make sure you cut a horizontal tip at the bottom of each egg so they can stand without falling.
