Egg dyeing is a fun and family-friendly Easter tradition in homes across the country. However, you have likely never seen results as creative, unique, and beautiful as these. Because Margie uses food-safe color and keeps the eggs refrigerated, they become a delicious and colorful treat for her family later. Wouldn’t they be pretty on a tray of deviled eggs?

Needed Supplies:
Eggs
Pot (for boiling the eggs)
Water
Food Safe Coloring
Disposable Cups
Butter Knife

Begin by hard-boiling the eggs as normal. Let them cool for a few minutes until they are safe to touch.

Margie recommends tapping the hard-boiled eggs with a knife handle to create cracks in the shell while keeping the egg white and yolk intact.

Select the colors you would like to use. If you want to eat the eggs later, be sure to use food safe coloring that works in cold water.

Fill the cups with enough water to cover an egg and add the food coloring. Stir until the coloring dissolves. Margie recommends using cups that you do not mind being stained with food coloring. Add the crackled eggs and place into the refrigerator for approximately four hours.

This is how the eggs will look when you take them out of the cups.

Peel off the shells just as you would for any hard-boiled egg. Even the shells are pretty!
