Look! Newly-Hatched Chicken and Egg Family

Look at this cute spring treat! Hardboiled eggs, carved with a few simple tools into a family of cheeping chicks and their proud mama.

We love this cute presentation of hardboiled eggs. It's a lot better for you than most of the sweets that fill Easter baskets, too.

The chicks were created with a sharp knife, some little circles of nori, and carrot beaks. (One commenter suggested using peppercorns for eyes.) They are pretty straightforward to assemble; we think that just about anyone could do this — no special tools required.
