Producer Michelle was obsessed with trying a different way to color eggs, and she came upon a recipe that involved, Cool Whip and food coloring.
So, she figured she'd try it.
Here's how it turned out... see instructions below the photo.
Producer Michelle says it's really easy.Here's what you need:
- 6 hard boiled eggs (cooled and refrigerated)
- 1 8oz container of Cool Whip
- Food coloring, like McCormick's (a basic 4 pack will do)
- Bamboo skewer or knife
- Bowl of cool water
Take the Cool Whip and put it in a shallow casserole dish, spreading evenly.
Take your food coloring and 'dot' colors across the top of the Cool Whip, using as many colors as you'd like.
When you're done, take the skewer or the tip of the knife and 'swirl' the colors together lightly in a few different directions.
(Wear your gloves here) Take your eggs, one by one and place them in the casserole dish and roll or twist them through the Cool Whip, usually one good roll will do to get it covered.
DON'T REMOVE IT.Repeat with the remaining eggs and let them sit for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove eggs one by one, and rinse in the bowl of water, then pat dry with a paper towel.
Now, an online recipe says to also use white vinegar (you're supposed to take a drop of vinegar and mix it with the food coloring before you dot it on the Cool Whip) but I assume that only makes the color brighter, although these turned out pretty bright without it!
Rumor has it that you can also do this same method with shaving cream, but I have not tried that, although next time I will so my husband can just eat the Cool Whip!
