Do hard-boiled eggs need to be refrigerated after cooking?


If hard-boiled eggs are left unrefrigerated for longer than 2 hours the growth of harmful bacteria buildup increases at a rapid pace.

How long can hard-boiled eggs safely remain in the refrigerator?

Plan on eating your refrigerated hard-boiled eggs within a 7 day period.

If storing hard-boiled eggs in a carton on a container, it’s wise to write the date on the container to keep track.

How to make hard-boiled bunny eggs:

  • Prepare the hard-boiled eggs and allow them to cool.
  • Use the card stock to draw and cut out 24 ears, making sure to leave a fold-tab at the base of each ear.
  • Cut.
  • Color the inside of each bunny ear with pink.
  • Fold each ear to leave a tab for gluing.
  • Glue.
  • Attach two ears to each hard-boiled bunny eggs.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Use a pink marker to lightly draw a triangle bunny nose (food-safe markers work best).
  • Draw on a simple bunny mouth, whiskers, and eyes.

  • Display and enjoy. Refrigerate after two hours.

Memories in the making:

I have tons of fun Easter memories from when my kids were little, but I wish I would have thought of these hard-boiled bunny eggs when they were little. I know they would have enjoyed them.

Of course, that doesn’t stop me from making them for myself. I’ve always been a sucker for a bunny!

  • 12 hard boiled eggs cooked and cooled
  • 1 piece of white lightweight card stock
  • 2 markers pink and black (food safe is best)
  • scissors
  • white craft glue


  • Draw out 24 bunny ear shapes on the card stock, making sure to add fold tabs to the bottom of each ear.
  • Use the scissors to cut out each ear, including the fold tab. *Note - this is easiest to do if you trim the card stock to a smaller size.
  • On the opposite side of where you drew your ear shapes, use the pink marker to color in the inside of the bunny's ear. Do this for all 24 ears.
  • Fold the tab on the ears backward from where you colored in with the pink marker.
  • Place a tiny dab of white glue on the bottom of the ear tab.
  • Press each ear firmly in place on the top of the pointy end of each bunny egg. Continue the same process with all the eggs until each one has two ears.
  • Using the pink marker, draw a tiny upside-down triangle for the nose of the bunny.
  • Use the black marker to draw on the mouth, whiskers, and eyes.
  • If you plan on displaying your bunny eggs in the carton, they came in, add about 1 tablespoon of rice into the back compartments, so they're lifted up a bit higher than the bunny eggs in the front row. *Note - you can also use this method to display the bunny eggs in another style of holder to keep them standing straight.
