I grew up in a family with several children, and one tradition we had was like many people – we hit every available Easter egg hunt in a 20 mile radius of our house. That may be a slight exaggeration. There was the year I won the golden egg; that was thrilling. Then there was the one we went to where they used real hard boiled eggs – except we ended up with some that weren’t hard boiled and when I started to peel one in the car to eat on the way home…well you can probably guess how that story ended. Even when we were in college, Mom and Dad still had an Easter egg hunt and that was so much fun!
So I thought maybe I’d try to make one myself. I didn’t have a pattern but I figured 2 tumbler shaped pieces and a circle would almost do it. If anyone would like me to post instructions with measurements, etc. let me know and I’ll add in another post. In the meantime, this one passed muster so I’m filling it up with lots and lots of chocolate and sending it on its way!
