Kool-Aid Dyed Eggs

star pooley Recipe

By star pooley starryrose


This is so simple and earth friendly!!


a variety of kool-aid packages
eggs (hard boiled)
2/3 c
water per package of kool-aid

Directions Step-By-Step

Add one packet of Kool-Aid to 2/3 cup of water and stir.

Make sure eggs have cooled and a dry!
You don't have to leave the eggs in the dye cups very long before you'll see them become quite brightly colored. The eggs will smell fruity at first but after they dry, they smell and taste like normal hard-boiled eggs.
Color Tips:

I will warn you about a couple of colors/flavors that had less than desirable results. Lemonade on its own comes out too light (as does the Pink Lemonade) and Grape will quickly turn dark gray-ish.

To get a nice yellow, use one packet of Lemonade mixed with a quarter to half packet of Orange.

To get light pink, use one packet of Pink Lemonade and add a little bit of Cherry or Strawberry.

To turn the gray/brown Grape egg into an indigo color, add some Berry Blue to the mix.

I had the same problem with the color rubbing off. The smell was a lot better but we had to wipe all them off and re-dye with a kit. How can you stop it from creating a color film over the egg.

Tried this and loved it! As far as the yellow honest try using peach mango. Came out as a golden yellow if left in. If the egg is completely dry the color won't rub off.

Thank you for this recipe. My daughter and I did it today for my 2 grandsons and they had a wonderful time dying the eggs. We tried adding blue raspberry to the grape, but it turned the eggs black. Oh well, they are boys and they loved it! With the lemonade, we added some sour apple and it was still very light, but again, the boys loved it.
Happy Easter!
