- scaled milk, cooled to room temperature

Punch dough down, divide into 12 pieces. Roll each piece to form a 1 inch thick rope about 14 inches long and, taking two pieces, twist to form a "braid", pinching the ends, and loop into a circle.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until double, about an hour again. Brush each bread with beaten egg wash. Put on the sprinkles. In the middle of each bread ring, gently place an Easter egg (already hard boiled and colored), making an indentation with the egg.
Bake at 350 degrees until golden - about 20 - 25 minutes. Cool on rack
