The HUNT (according to my OCD Hubby)
1. Those silly plastic eggs (invented for the germ-ophobes) must have equal amounts of candy or coins in them...Yes, hours is invested dividing everything equally and for those helpful neighbours who pre-pack their eggs - yes, every single one is opened to ensure that it has equitable candy...
2. Then let's outline the process for hiding the eggs: Up at 5.30am, another hour or two is invested to ensure the ultimate hunt is achieved! He does a good job because come summer we often find those hot, melted eggs stuck behind a few rocks!
3. Then we all must line up and the hunt begins. Once the bell has gone...
4. All found eggs are then placed into a communal basket and shared equally amongst the participants.
What happens if you step out of line? Ask my preteen...He likes to test the law enforcer!
Then comes the sugar high and grumpy kids...So, between the Law Enforcer & grumpy kids is it too late to sign up for Passover?
Here are some fabulous Easter pinning ideas (click on the photo for the how to do's) and a little sweet something from me xox
- In a saucepan over a medium heat combine sugar, corn syrup, water, colouring and rose water. Then stir.
- Dip in candy thermometer, stop stirring and heat to 320 F (160 c)
- Line your worktable with parchment paper.
- Once your sugar is ready, dip a wire whisk into the sugar syrup and hold over the pot to let drip.
- Holding whisk a foot above the parchment paper, swing the whisk back and forth, so that the thin strands of sugar fall onto the paper. Repeat a few more times until you have a nice 'nest' of sugar.
- Immediately form the shape of a nest and let it sit...
- NOW add those tasty little chocolate eggs or jelly beans xo
