If you’ve ever tried to create a swirl pattern on an Easter egg with store-bought dye, you know how challenging—if not impossible—the task can be. But who would have thought with a little whipped cream and food coloring you could create your very own marbled effect in no time? This fool-proof egg dying hack is one the kids will love to do too, since they get to play in whipped cream!
- 6-12 hard-boiled eggs
- 3 tablespoons white vinegar
- Tub of whipped topping
- 8-by-8-inch or 9-by-13-inch foil baking pan
- 2-3 containers food coloring (your choice of colors)
- Coat the eggs with vinegar in a bowl. Add a 3-inch layer of whipped topping to the baking pan, making sure that the whipped topping is leveled out.
- Add 8-10 drops of food coloring to the top of the whipped topping, and do the same with the remaining colors. Slowly swirl the colors together for a minute or so.
- Gently place an egg onto the top of mixture, and then roll the egg along the top with a spoon until it is entirely coated. Place the egg aside.
- Add a few more drops of food coloring to the Cool Whip, and coat another egg. Repeat this with your remaining eggs.
- Refrigerate in a covered container for 4-12 hours. Remove from fridge, and very gently rub the whipped topping off the eggs with a paper towel.
