Easter Eggs Using Cool Whip

Pin It Easter Eggs Using Cool Whip

Easter Eggs Using Cool Whip
Pretty Easter Eggs
About a month ago, I came across the site Passion for Savings and loved the way the Easter Eggs came out using Cool Whip. I watched the video and had to try it. Last week, Allen and I made our Easter Eggs with Cool Whip and they came out so pretty. Every year we like to color eggs together and we had fun doing them. I will use this technique again next year and do many more colors. You only need a few ingredients. See directions below.

Ingredients
1- 24 oz. Cool Whip

Americolor Gel Food Colors

1 Dozen Eggs, Hard Boiled

3 Cups Distilled White Vinegar

Directions
Thaw Cool Whip and place it in 2 9x13 baking dishes.

Put 3-4 drops of Gel Colors of your choice into Cool Whip, and combine using a knife and swirl around to mix the different colors. I did two colors in each dish.

Once hard boiled eggs are cooled, place in a large bowl in vinegar and soak for 10 minutes. This step will help the eggs absorb the color.

Gently pat dry each egg with a paper towel.

Place eggs in the Cool Whip color mixture and cover completely, and let them absorb the color for 20 minutes.

One by one, put egg in a bowl of water to remove Cool Whip. Only do this for a few seconds.

Gently pat dry with paper towel and repeat until you do all the eggs.

I placed in a dish, covered with plastic wrap, and placed in the fridge overnight for the colors to develop.

Note: Do not place eggs in running water or the color will wash off.
