How To Make Cool Whip Dyed Easter Eggs

Begin by placing your hard boiled eggs in a dish with vinegar. It is okay if they are not completely covered. Let the eggs sit for about 5 minutes, rotating half way through if they are only partially covered.

Next, prepare your Cool Whip egg dying “bath”. Dump the Cool Whip into your pyrex dish and choose the colors you want to use. Randomly squirt drops of color on the Cool Whip. The more food coloring you use, the more vibrant the color will be, so use as much or as little dye as you want.

Take your toothpick and drag it around to create a pattern in the Cool Whip. Once you have created a pattern you like, roll your eggs in it.

Use cool whip to dye your easter eggs this year! This is an easy Easter egg decorating technique.

Once the eggs are totally covered in Cool Whip, set them in a bowl. Place the bowl with Cool Whip covered eggs in the fridge for 12-24 hours.

The next day, remove the eggs and wipe them clean with a paper towel. Your eggs should be perfectly marbled!
