Bento for my daughter.



Bento for my son.



I used a Q-tip and food coloring to color the Hello Kitty Egg.
Obviously I used an egg mold to make the egg into a Hello Kitty.


* Answers to questions people asked in this thread moved here for all to see  Grin *

The stitch container has ketchup for his octodog .

The recipe for the "powerball" is here  http://www.xobobox.com/lunchbox_ideas/healthy-kids-snack.html.

But I posted it below for easy access.

This “Powerball” recipe makes about 40 snack balls, and leftovers can be kept in the fridge or frozen with wax paper separating the layers.

  1.  Mix 1 cup peanut butter and 1 cup honey until smooth

  2.  Add 3 cups old-fashioned oats and 1/2 cup ground flaxseed

  3.  Add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup nuts and dried fruit (any combintion of peanuts, sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped dates, etc)

  4.  Roll into ping-pong sized balls and store in fridge or freezer


I used chopped raisins, mini choc chips & chopped almonds. They are SOOO YUMMY!


I read online to peel the egg while it is still warm, which was hard to do, but I kept dipping it in ice water as I peeled, that helped the shell come off more smoothly. Then after I smushed the egg in the mold I soaked the entire mold in ice water for 10 mins, then I just left it in the fridge overnight IN the mold. This morning I opened the mold and that is what it looked like. This was the 1st time mine turned out well. I think the longer it is cold in the mold (hee hee) the better it will look.

Adorable HK egg!  I keep wanting to get one of those molds, and then remember that I don't like hardboiled eggs... Roll Eyes

I have the Hello Kitty egg mold as well, do you use any tricks to make it come out so well? Mine could be better. Ok... mine sucks. But yours looks great.

Thanks for the recipe!  I thought it looked like oatmeal and chocolate chips.  Sorta like a granalo bar in a ball.  So, Im totally going to make some now!

The size of egg is important too. Mine were too small, I only got an image on half of my egg. Thank you for the coloring tips.

Awesome! I am a huge fan of bento art. Unfortunately, I never have time for anything special when I use my bento box... I Just kind of throw the food in there, all willy-nilly, LOL. These look cute though, your kids must be thrilled Smiley

This is absolutely adorable! I bet all of the other kids at the lunch table were very envious of these wonderful treats.

My mom used to make me square hard boiled eggs when I was a kid. It was such fun!!

your hello kitty has sent me on a mad search for an egg mold or 6 lol  Hopefully I can find some ebay!  My husband said he'd eat more eggs if they were shaped like stuff Roll Eyes Maybe it will work on the kids too. Smiley  Your lunch boxes are great btw, very super cute!

We are moving back to the states in 3 weeks so this week was "Hunt Down More Egg Molds Week" I have successfully found cinnaroll (sanrio) to go with the hello kitty one (My daughter was beyond excited) and then I found a fish, a bunny, a bear and a truck. Still searching for more... Must get them all before we leave!! lol Grin
