What could be more fun than these little cuties. They will brighten any breakfast or lunch and let your honey know you are thinking and care about him. You can make these adorable eggs in about 10 minutes.
- Milk carton or any juice carton (cut open, washed well and dried)
- Chopstick (round one is ideal)
- Rubber bands
Here are 5 easy steps to follow:
Step 1: Take milk carton or a thick white sheet of paper and fold it in half lengthwise.
Step 2: Cook hard-boiled egg.
Since a perfectly peeled hard-boiled egg is essential, follow these easy instructions: Place the eggs in cold water, add 3 tablespoons of salt, bring to a boil, cover, remove from heat, and let stand for 6 – 8 minutes. Dip eggs into ice water for a minute. Carefully peel.
Step 3: While the egg is still warm, peel the egg and put the egg on the milk carton, place a chopstick on the center of the egg, and put rubber bands on the both ends.
If you don't have a round chopstick maybe you can put a skewer inside a straw and use it. If you use a disposable chopstick, the middle part of the heart will probably look funky. Make sure the egg is freshly boiled and warm. Otherwise the egg might break from the pressure.
Step 4: Leave it for about 10 minutes.
Keep the egg in the fridge if it’s summer time. It's hard to see on the picture but make sure that chopstick is digged into the egg.
Step 5: Remove the rubber band, take the egg and carefully cut it in half.
Hard boiled eggs are so soft, smooth and easily modified. It's cute as is. But the heart shaped yolk makes it even more adorable! Besides, you can cut the bottom of the egg to make them stand.
Every pair is very unique, so no other pair is like it! Kind of romantic, isn't it? It doesn’t require any special technique or ingredients. Also I think it can be awesome finger food at a party. You don’t need a special mold so you can make a lot of them at the same time. Put seasoning on the top like salt, ketchup, anything to dress them up or you can make deviled eggs with them. It’s easy, and a delicious way to tell someone how much you love them.
