Easter Egg Coloring Recipe

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

I love having family tradition, which is coloring Easter eggs at my moms house.  Do you have a family tradition???  Here is the egg coloring recipe I would like to share with you=)


10 drops food coloring (per color)
1 teaspoon white vinegar  (per color)
1/2 cup boiling water  (per color)
  1. For each dye bath combine 1/2 cup boiling water with 1 tsp vinegar and 10 drops of food coloring in a bowl. Start with 5 drops red and 5 drops yellow, for orange for example, or 6 drops blue and 4 drops green for turquoise.
  2. Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye bath for 3-5 minutes, extend time for richer color. Try using tongs to dip only half an egg in one color, then dip other half in a different color.
  3. Use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove eggs and place on wax paper to dry, blot any excess with a paper towel.
  4. If you plan to eat your easter eggs, never leave them unrefrigerated at any point for more than 2 hours.

 Big thanks goes to for this easy to follow recipe!!!
