Easter just passed. Growing up, Easter was one of my favorite Holidays! So much joy, happiness, spring break and family time. As an adult, I still love Easter, but one thing I miss…the dying of Easter eggs. All my sibling would gather around the kitchen table and making a complete mess! It was great!
I decided to recreate the old times with a much more “grown-up” version of the Easter egg. (Not really, I still made a mess.)
Hard Boiled Eggs
Gel Food Coloring
First you need to make some hard-boiled eggs. Here’s a great recipe:
Allow the eggs to reach room temperature. Then place eggs in a pot in one layer at the bottom. Cover with tepid water. Bring the water to a boil. Cover and remove from heat and let it sit for 12-15 minutes. At this time, remove from water and place into a bowl full of ice-cold water. Allow to fully cool and peel!
Once peeled and cleaned slice in half and save the yolks. Using a gel food coloring decorate the eggs to your heart’s content. Place eggs inside a medium-sized container filled half way with the same colored water. Allow to sit for 3-5 minutes, remove and place on a paper towel to dry. Then presto! Grown-up colored eggs.
