Beet Pickled Eggs

24 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
2 20-oz. cans whole beets
2 cups sugar
2 cups vinegar

In saucepan, mix the sugar, vinegar, and beet juice, and bring to a boil. Add beets to this mixture and simmer 2 minutes. In gallon glass jar, add 1 dozen shelled eggs and 1/2 of the beet mixture, then the other dozen eggs and beet mixture. Seal and refrigerate at least three days.

Peanut Butter Eggs

1/8 tsp. salt
2 cups peanut butter
5 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Hershey chocolate bar
1 6-oz. package chocolate chips
1 stick butter, softened

In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, salt, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla until it takes on a doughy texture. Form the peanut butter dough into egg shapes, using about two tablespoons of dough for each “egg.” In a double boiler, melt the chocolate bar and chocolate chips. Using a large slotted spoon, dip the egg shapes into chocolate mixture. Place on waxed paper and allow to cool.

Meringue Bunnies

2 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 oz. pink melting wafers
2 oz. chocolate melting wafers

In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a plastic sandwich bag and cut a small hole in a corner of the bag. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, pipe the meringue mixture into bunny shapes about 3”-4” inches tall. Bake at 225° F for 1 1/2 hours. Allow to cool on a wire rack. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the pink wafers at 50% power for 30-second increments, until completely melted. Stir until smooth. Place the melted candy in a plastic sandwich bag and cut a small hole in a corner of the bag. Pipe pink coloring into the inner ears of the meringue bunnies. Repeat this process with the chocolate melting wafers to paint on whiskers, noses, mouths, and eyes.
