Want to step outside the basket this Easter season? We discovered a brilliant little trick to make egg decorating a work of art. You can get beautifully tie-dyed Easter eggs in just a few, simple steps. The surprise ingredient? COOL WHIP. That’s right— this method involves everyone’s favorite dessert tub. Using COOL WHIP is a kid-friendly, safe, and edible alternative to the shaving cream technique. Plus, it's super easy and the final product is center-piece material.
Ready to start decorating?
- 2 cups HEINZ Distilled White Vinegar
- 2 tubs (8 oz. each) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
- 1 doz. unpeeled hard-boiled eggs
- Food coloring
Step 1: Prepare your hard-boiled eggs. For easy-to-peel eggs, we add a teaspoon of white vinegar and a pinch of a salt to our water. Place the eggs in boiling water over medium heat for eight to nine minutes.
Step 2: Submerge the hard-boiled eggs in white vinegar and let them sit for a couple minutes. This will help your dye stick to the eggs. Drain the eggs and pat them completely dry with a paper towel.
Step 3: Spread your COOL WHIP in a thin, even layer on a small baking sheet.
Step 4: Place droplets of food coloring all over, in as many colors as you like! Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together for a marbled effect.
Step 5: Roll your eggs in the COOL WHIP to decorate, and then let them dry for 15-20 minutes. Rinse and enjoy!
