This Easter we thought we would try our hand at dying some marble Easter eggs. All the tutorials we were finding weren’t edible options. We were starting to lose hope, but finally we found an option that was edible and fun!
What you’ll need:
First, you will need to boil your eggs. Fill a sauce pan with about 1 – 2 inches of cold water, enough to cover the eggs, bring the water to a rolling boil, then cover and remove from heat. Set aside for 10-12 minutes. After this, let the eggs cool.
While the eggs are cooking, go ahead and fill a shallow bowl with the whipped cream. Then, you will add your food coloring. We choose pink and purple for our colors, but go ahead and get crazy! Use a toothpick to create the marble pattern. You can do this by running the toothpick horizontally and vertically through the whipped cream.
If you don’t want dye on your hands for the next three days; this is where the rubber gloves will come in handy. Take one of your cooled eggs and place it in the whipped cream, you will then roll it all around to get it covered. When the egg is fully covered take it out of the whipped cream and place it on a paper plate. Repeat this step until all of your eggs are covered in whipped cream.
Once all of your eggs are ready you will place them in the fridge to set. Depending on how deep you want your colors to be is how long you will leave them in the fridge. We left ours in the fridge for 2 – 3 hours. Leave them in longer if you want your colors to be even more vibrant.
When you are ready you will use a damp paper towel to wipe off the whipped cream. There you have it beautiful, edible, marble Easter eggs.
