Start with Burnbrae Farms’ EGGS2go! snack pack & assemble ingredients
Open EGGS2go! package and pat eggs dry. The eggs are packaged in water to keep them fresh but you will want to dry the eggs off a bit in order to "stick" the ingredients on to create your creature.
Create the unicorn horn by taking a rectangle chunk of marble cheese and carefully using a knife, carve a unicorn horn. You will want the base the widest part and round in shape, tapering down to a smaller tip. Another note, make sure an adult does this part!
Time to begin assembling the horn and crown. Breaking off the sharp point of a toothpick, spear the base of the horn with the toothpick. Then, take a leaf of curly parsley, place on the top of the egg and place the horn on top of it, securing it into place. You will then want to add a few more pieces of parsley to complete the base of the crown. You may be able to spear the parsley directly into the egg or you may want to use the tips of toothpicks to further secure it. Note: just make sure that if you are using toothpicks to hold this all together that you do remove them all before the kids eat these critters!
Dicing up a strawberry into small pieces, add in three to four pieces of strawberry on either side of the horn to complete the crown. If the tips of the toothpicks are still sticking out from the curly parsley, you can simply place the strawberry piece on top of that. Otherwise, use more toothpicks to secure into place. This is a great job for the kids to help with!
You can't have a unicorn without a mane, right?! Taking a few larger sprigs of fresh dill (look for ones that have more of a natural curve in them), secure the mane behind the horn. Again, we suggest using toothpicks to really secure it all into place. If you find that the mane looks a little sparse, you can add in a few more sprigs of fresh fill underneath to give it a thicker look. Then gently pull the dill to one side and hold tightly against the egg until it almost "sticks" to the egg.
The final step in bringing these unicorn egg creatures to life is to give them eyes! Using the bundle of fresh dill, simply cut off individual pieces of dill and place accordingly. I chose to do one larger piece of dill as the eyelid and then three shorter pieces of dill per eye, as the eye lashes.
Now enjoy your protein-packed little friend! Don't forget to remove the toothpicks before eating.
