Easter dinner is a special event in many homes around the world. Here in south Texas, we always have a barbeque with chicken and beef fajitas, kiolbasa sausage, potato salad, rice and beans. After dinner it’s time to head outside for the Easter egg hunt for the littles. Then it’s time for the cascarones!
Cascarones are a fun and festive Easter tradition that is popular in Mexico and the United States. They are made by hollowing out a chicken egg and filling it with confetti or small toys. The egg is then sealed with a piece of tissue paper and decorated. Cascarones are typically cracked over someone’s head to shower them with confetti.
If you would like an extra special Easter egg decoration or a unique place setting for your Easter table, try this simple Rainbow Egg Cozy Crochet Pattern.
They’re quick and easy to make and will brighten up your Easter decor.
