Whipped Topping Dyed Eggs



Whipped Topping Dyed Eggs


Are you looking for a fun way to get the kids in the kitchen and dye some eggs this Easter? Whipped Topping Dyed Eggs are a great kid friendly activity. They are quick and easy. But I'm not going to lie, things could get a little messy!

What You Need

They only require a few ingredients. Combine this with a little imagination and a lot of fun and you’re good to go!
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Large Pot
  • Large Baking Pan
  • Vinegar
  • Food Coloring
  • Whipped Topping
  • Spoons
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Paper Towels

How To Make Your Whipped Topping Dyed Eggs

In a few quick and easy steps you'll have some beautifully decorated and uniquely original dyed eggs. These eggs will steal the show at any Easter table.


First soak your hard boiled eggs in vinegar for at least ten minutes. Here’s a few tips. If you add a little salt to the water when you boil your eggs and they will come out of their shells easier when you go to peel them.


Next remove the eggs from the vinegar and pat them dry with a paper towel.


Spoon the whipped topping in your large baking dish, making sure to spread it out pretty evenly. You want the pan to be filled around an inch deep. My pan took two regular size containers of whipped topping.


After the whipped topping is smooth, randomly add dots of food coloring to it. You can use liquid or gel food coloring. The gel will give you more vibrant colors, but I actually used liquid this time because it is easier to work with. I like adding blue next to green, red next to yellow, and yellow next to blue. 


Then swirl your colors together with the wooden skewers. If you don’t have skewers you can use a straw or even the back of a spoon.


Next roll each egg through the food colored whipped topping, make sure the eggs are covered completely.


Leave the eggs to sit in the whipped topping for at least fifteen minutes.


Then remove the eggs from the whipped topping and gently rinse with water and pat dry again with paper towels. Make sure to be gentle with the eggs and do not rub too hard. The dye will not be completely set yet.


I like to place the eggs back into the carton to store in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy!
