I’m a Mom of two little girls – how else were we going to decorate our eggs?! I mean, is there any other way that our Easter Eggs should look?! It’s all about the sprinkles, babe!

And, for the purpose of authenticity, I am showing off my paper plates, ’cause this is how we do.

Remember that first time you went to a nightclub and felt overwhelmed when they asked you about what you would like to drink? And the only drink you knew about was a Margarita? Aaaaaand hennessy + coke?

So I’m at this nightclub, I’m 18, very much under the legal drinking age, (I had a fake I.D. :P) and I told the bartender to give me a Margarita, because that’s all I knew. He then asked if I wanted it on-the-rocks or frozen. I started to sweat – thinking, he wants to serve me a drink with rocks?! What the??? Embarrassed or not, I asked him to clarify… and on-the-rocks it was!

As he was making my drink, I noticed him dipping the rim of the glass in a clear substance. “What’s that?”, I said. “Corn Syrup!”, was his response. “So, that’s how you make the salt stick?! It’s not water??”. He smirked, realized that I was a bit on the not-so-bright side, and served me my drink. Since that moment, the main purpose of corn syrup around here is for decorating our glasses. And Easter Eggs. In fact, the corn syrup sits in what we call, the alcoholic cabinet, right next to our wines and spirits.

What’s the point?

Hard boiled eggs + corn syrup + sprinkles = beautifully decorated Easter Eggs.

Sprinkles Easter Eggs = Happy Daughters = Happy Moms.
Happy Moms = Happy Wives.
Happy Wives = Happy Lives.
See how all that works out?

All you need to do now is boil a few eggs and get out your paper plates – no need to pull out the fancy stuff, just yet. Pour corn syrup in one plate and sprinkles in the other. Next, roll the egg in corn syrup, transfer it to the plate with sprinkles, roll it around, and voila! Let the eggs dry up completely and place them in your basket.

How to decorate Easter Eggs with Sprinkles!
Serves: 12 Eggs
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Corn Syrup
  • Sprinkles
  • Sanding Sugars
  1. Cook the eggs and cool completely.
  2. Dry each egg with kitchen towel/paper towel.
  3. In a bowl or plate, pour about ¼ cup corn syrup.
  4. Place the sprinkles in a separate bowl or plate.
  5. At this point, I would suggest to put on some kitchen gloves or use egg-dippers.
  6. Cover the egg with a layer of corn syrup - I rolled it around on a plate, but if you're using a small bowl, you can just dip the egg in and shake off the excess.
  7. Roll the eggs in sprinkles and set aside to dry. You can also roll them in sanding sugars.
  8. Transfer to Easter baskets.

    How easy is this recipe? And the corn syrup tip? Wonderful. I always wondered why the salt didn’t stick so well at home–I will add this tip to my Cheater Margarita Smoothie post, courtesy of you and your teenage willingness to ask the hard questions.
