I know, I know — roosters don’t lay eggs…but these lil guys were too cute NOT to share with you! This is SIMPLE to do, makes for a cute surprise in someone’s lunch and also makes them the hit of the lunch room!
- Hard Boiled Eggs, Peeled
- Carrots, peeled and sliced
- Black Olives
Using a paring knife cut each carrot slice in half and cut triangles out of the rounded portion to form the cone. *Do not discard the triangles; they will be used for the beak.
Slice a line into the top of each of the narrow portions of the boiled eggs and place cone into slit. Decided where you want to place the beak and eyes and cut small X’s in the space. Using one of the triangles left over from the comb, place it where the beak would be. Cut a black olive into small squares and place them into the X’s for the eyes.
*If you have problems getting the eyes or beak to stay in place, use a toothpick to gently push them into place. To get the rooster eggs to stand up slice the bottom of the egg so that is flat and will stand on its own.
