Is it too early to start decorating Easter eggs? I hope not. It’s been so warm here in DC it’s definitely not too early for ice cream. These super cute ice cream cone Easter eggs are simple to paint and require no dye. Choose any “flavor” you like. (Just be sure to use non-toxic paint, of course, if you plan on eating the eggs.) And bonus, these use brown eggs. I find that around Easter, the white eggs are harder to find in my supermarket.
The internet is filled with advice on how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs. Here is what I do, just to add to the jumble. I place the eggs in a saucepan in cold water. Heat the water to boiling and turn it down to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the eggs and let cool.
Here are the video how-tos. See written instructions below.
