How To Make christmas eggs

  • 1
    I didn’t have any Easter Egg dye from last year, but I did have food dye. If you want really specific or bright colors, you can hit up the food dye section at a craft store, but I just have regular old 4 pack primary kit from Target. I prepped the food dye by following the box, but it was 1 tsp white vinegar and a half cup of HOT water.

    Cut your eggs in half and remove yokes. You can prep those anyway you like.
  • 3
    Add your already boiled egg whites into the dye mixture, leave for approx 3 minutes and then rotate up. Once your eggs have the desired color, remove and pat dry with napkin.
