01 Apr Tasty Easter Treats
Spring is finally in the air, along with the smell of marshmallow and chocolate candy in the shape of adorable bunnies, which means that Easter is just around the corner. We all know that you can’t have Easter without some delicious deviled eggs, which is why we would love to share our favorite recipe to make the famous Easter staple!
What you will need:
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar (optional)
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 2 pinches of salt (1/8 teaspoon)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Paprika for garnish
- Fill a medium-size pot halfway with water and place the eggs in the water. Bring the water to a boil and cook the eggs for eight minutes. There are many ways to cook a hard-boiled egg and this is the technique that works for us.
- Once the eggs are cooked, drain the warm water and fill the pot with cool water. Allow the eggs to sit for about 1 minute.
- Gently crack the eggs and remove the shells. You can peel the shells while holding the egg under cool running water to prevent the eggs from burning your fingers.
- Carefully dry the eggs with some paper towels and place them on a plate. Cut the eggs lengthwise and gently scoop out the egg yolks, which can be set aside in a separate bowl.
- Mash the egg yolks into a fine crumble, using a fork. Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper, and mix into a smooth consistency.
- Scoop spoonfuls of the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites or if you like to be fancy you can also use a piping bag.
- Lightly sprinkle some paprika over each egg and transfer them onto a serving plate to be enjoyed!
So deviled eggs are not your thing and you prefer to enjoy the sweeter things in life. We’ve got the perfect treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth this Easter. The no-bake recipe for Oreo balls is extremely easy to make and you can even switch it up with any kind of your favorite flavor Oreo cookies.
What you will need:
- 8oz package of original cream cheese
- Pack of Oreos
- Pack of Candiquick Chocolate (white or milk chocolate)
- Allow the cream cheese to warm up to room temperature in a bowl and then soften/spread it with a spoon.
- Crush the Oreos using a food processor or by placing them in a ziplock bag and going over them with a rolling pin. Break up any large pieces until it has a very fine consistency.
- Add the crushed Oreos to the cream cheese and mix together until it forms a dough.
- Use a spoon to take small scoops of the mixture and roll it into small balls that are bite-sized. They can also easily be shaped into little Easter eggs to stay with the theme.
- Place the Oreo balls on a tray lined with some parchment paper and leave them in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.
- Once they’re ready to come out of the fridge, melt some of the Candiquick chocolate by following the directions on the package.
- Place each of the Oreo balls on a fork and dip them into the chocolate one at a time before placing them back on the parchment paper.
- Sprinkle some sprinkles and allow the chocolate to cool.
