Easter eggs are perfect in many forms; hard-boiled and dyed, colorful plastic and filled with treats, or even ceramic collectibles. But if you were to ask us our favorite way to enjoy Easter eggs, it would be to eat them.
No, not the actual eggs (although peeling off the colorful shells and eat them hard-boiled is certainly plausible); there has been a recent surge of sweets, treats and recipes all inspired by colorful Easter eggs. From frosted cookies to surprise Rice Krispies Treats, we have rounded up our favorite ways to enjoy the best treats of the Easter season – all in egg form!
