The Easter eggs do not need to be hard boiled. They will cook when the bread bakes. I usually dye the eggs right out of the refrigerator. Just be careful not to crack them when dying them! In a large mixing bowl combine the yeast, warm milk (not hot), salt, softened butter, eggs and sugar. Add 1/2 of the flour(2 cups) and with your dough hook beat until smooth.
Place dough rings on a greased baking sheet, cover and let rise until doubled, about an hour. Brush each bread with the beaten egg wash, sprinkle the candy over each one. Make an indentation in the middle of each ring and gently place a colored egg into each one. Bake at 350 degrees F until golden, about 20-25 minutes. Cool on rack.
