Just For Fun

  • MARBLED COOL WHIP EGGS

    INGREDIENTS:

    • 1 large tub of whipped topping such as Cool Whip
    • GEL or liquid food coloring  (Gel tends to works better and makes a brighter egg)
    • Desired amount of hard boiled eggs to dye
    • White Vinegar (See notes below)

    DIRECTIONS:

    1. Spread the whipped topping in a large baking dish or baking pan with sides.
    2. Add food coloring
      1. If using liquid coloring, mix food coloring with a couple of drops of vinegar.  Drip food coloring liberally over the whipped cream, keeping a little space between drops.
      2. If using gel coloring,mix a little bit of gel coloring with a few drops of vinegar.  Drip food coloring liberally over the whipped cream, keeping space between drops.  Swirl slightly with a straw or craft stick to swirl bits of gel throughout the whipped cream.
    3. Use a butter knife to swirl the colors around the whipped cream. Don’t mix it up too much, you want swirls of color!
    4. Pour vinegar into a bowl. Submerge eggs in vinegar for about 2 minutes.  Remove from vinegar and dry with a paper towel.
    5. Roll your eggs in the marbled cream, using a teaspoon to roll / turn them. One complete roll is best, that way the colors don’t get muddy.
    6. Let your eggs sit for at least 10 minutes up to half an hour. The longer you let them sit, the brighter your dyed eggs will be.
    7. Rinse eggs under cool water then gently wipe your eggs clean with a paper towel or clean dish cloth.
    8. Store eggs in refrigerator until ready to be eaten.
