When it comes to Easter eggs, there are so many different ways to decorate them. You could use nail polish to paint them, wrap them up in baker's twine, or cover them in gold leaf, as just a few fun ideas. But if your end goal is to enjoy your eggs during your Easter brunch, you're going to want to make sure your decorating idea is food-safe. So when we spotted this cute idea for decorating Easter eggs with Cool Whip, we had to give it a shot. These gorgeous marbled Cool Whip Easter eggs are super easy to make and the end result will be a stunning addition to your Easter table.
And, as an added bonus, they make for a great (and, yes, somewhat messy) craft that'll entertain your kids while they're stuck inside.
What You'll Need:
- 1 dozen hard-boiled eggs
- 2 8 oz. tubs of Cool Whip Original Whipped Topping ($2, Amazon)
- Large glass casserole dish ($25, Amazon)
- Food coloring ($3, Amazon)
- Distilled white vinegar ($8, Amazon)
- Bamboo skewers ($5, Amazon)
- Large bowl ($12, Amazon)
- Place your eggs in a pot and cover them with cold water by 1 inch.
- Bring the water to a boil then reduce the heat to low, and let the eggs simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Remove the eggs and let them cool in a bowl of ice water.
- Soak your eggs in vinegar for two minutes, then drain. This will help the dye to adhere to the shell.
- Spoon the Cool Whip into the casserole dish, and spread evenly with a spatula.
- Mix food coloring with a few drops of vinegar, then drip the mixture randomly over the surface of the Cool Whip.
- Lightly swirl the food coloring into the Cool Whip using a bamboo skewer.
- Place hard-boiled eggs into the dish, spaced evenly apart.
- Roll each egg to coat it with the Cool Whip and food coloring mixture, using a spoon to ensure even coverage — one good roll is best!
- Let the eggs sit in the mixture for about 20 minutes.
- Remove each egg and rinse it in a bowl of cool water to remove the Cool Whip and excess dye.
- Let the eggs dry on a paper towel.
