Easter Egg Dying!

I was looking for a new way to dye Easter Eggs this year, and I am obsessed with this technique. It’s simple, somewhat clean, and creates BEAUTIFUL eggs!

Ingredients:

Supplies:

  • Paper Towels
  • Tin/Foil Pan
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Cups
  • Spoons

Directions:

  1. Prepare eggs. Pour White House® White Distilled Vinegar into a bowl. Submerge the hard-boiled eggs into the vinegar. Let the eggs soak for 2 minutes. Removes the eggs and dry with paper towels.
  2. In small cups, mix a little bit of each color of gel coloring with a few drops of vinegar.
  3. Spread the cool whip into your tin pan.
  4. Drip food coloring-vinegar mixture over the whipped cream in small drops. Be sure to space the colors apart.
  5. With the end of a spoon, swirl the colors into the cool whip. Be sure not to completely mix the colors.
  6. Roll your eggs in the mixture. Use your spoons to push them through the colored cream. Make sure each egg does one complete rotation and is covered in colored cream. Do not over rotate your eggs through the mixture, too many colors mixed = brown. Brown isn’t very Eastery!
  7. Keep the eggs in the mixture for 30 minutes MAX!
  8. Wipe the cream off the eggs with a paper towel. If too messy, run under cold water.
  9. Voila! You have some beautiful eggs! (Pictures of the steps below!)

Looking for a way to change up your Easter Egg hunt this year? Or maybe you need an allergy friendly option? Or if I am being honest, just need something that isn’t chocolate that you will end up eating for days to come after Easter?!

I love the idea of giving quality time and experiences for gifts…so, I am using these printables to do just that! Each little peep has an activity or experience to open in an egg. Or you can personalize the activities by writing your own on the blank peeps!

Just save, print, cut, & stuff your eggs!

Easter Bunny Trail Mix!

When it comes to food, PRESENTATION is everything. This simple trail mix recipe is literally the easiest thing I have ever thrown together, and yet I the crowd always goes wild. This is a “go to” treat at Easter Dinner and school parties! It’s delicious, looks adorable, yet requires little time and effort….always a win in my book!

This recipe is perfect for a large crowd or school party. If you want a smaller serving, cut the recipe in half! Have fun with it and change up the ratio for your preference of sweet vs. savory!

Easter Bunny Trail Mix

Mix all ingredients together and serve in an Easter Basket line with tissue paper! Remember, presentation is everything.
