Celebrate Easter with this delicious recipe for Easter Egg Bread. A traditional Greek recipe, Easter Egg Bread is also known as tsoureki to some. Don't let the looks fool you, though. It's totally easy to make!
Roll each loaf of bread dough into 30-inch-long rope on lightly floured surface. Loosely twist both ropes together; place in circular shape on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Pinch ends together to seal. Spray lightly with cooking spray; cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm place 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Meanwhile, place 6 eggs in single layer in saucepan. Add enough water to completely cover eggs by at least 1 inch. Bring water to boil; cover. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 10 min. Drain eggs; immediately place in bowl of ice water. Let stand until eggs are completely cooled, changing water as necessary.
Bring 2 cups water to boil; stir in vinegar. Add to drink mix in medium bowl; stir until dissolved. Add cooked eggs; let stand 5 min. or until tinted to desired shade, turning eggs occasionally. Use tongs to transfer colored eggs to paper towel-covered baking sheet. Let stand until dry.
Heat oven to 350°F. Separate dough ropes to make 6 evenly spaced holes, each large enough to hold 1 hard-cooked egg as shown in photo. Place hard-cooked eggs in holes, pressing gently into dough to secure.
Beat remaining egg until blended; brush onto dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake 30 to 35 min. or until bread is golden brown. Cool 10 min. Transfer to wire rack; cool completely.
Melt chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over bread. Sprinkle with nuts.
