6
raw eggs in shells
1
(11-oz.) can Pillsbury® Refrigerated Breadsticks
1/3
cup vanilla frosting (from 16-oz. can)
Food color, if desired
2
teaspoons pastel-colored candy sprinkles
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Wash egg shells carefully; dry completely.
  2. Separate dough into 12 breadsticks. Roll each to form 8-inch rope. Twist 2 ropes together. Shape into a circle on ungreased cookie sheet; pinch ends together firmly. Repeat to form 6 breadstick circles. For easy removal from nests, spray each egg with nonstick cooking spray. Place an egg in center of each circle.
  3. Bake at 375°F. for 16 to 18 minutes or until breadsticks are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving to allow eggs to set.*
  4. Meanwhile, tint frosting to desired pastel color with a small amount of food color.
  5. Spread frosting on baked breadstick nests; sprinkle with candy sprinkles. To eat, remove eggs from nests. Cut eggs in half and scoop out cooked egg, or peel eggs.
