Personalize This


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.
