  1. Hard boil the eggs. As soon as they're finished cooking, dunk them in cold water, and then peel them quickly while still warm.
  2. Place two cardboard V-shapes into the egg carton diagonally across from each other. Nestle the still-warm eggs into the V's.
  3. Place the remaining two V-shapes on the top of the eggs. Lay the chopstick over the top, secure with a rubber band, and let sit for 20 minutes.
