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.

Ingredients

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.
