Today was the first time I colored eggs like this. I got the idea from a picture I saw on Pinterest. The result was amazing but it is a very time consuming task to peel them after coloring them. As you can see from the picture, it is not necessary to use much coloring as it spreads out along the cracks.
The secret to keeping the color bright is to remove only the shell and not skin under it. Half the fun is peeling the egg and seeing what bright designs are waiting underneath.
If you have the time and want to make an impression, these eggs are a great addition to an Easter lunch. The kids were so excited to see them. My 5 year old said they looked like spider webs. I made a few different types and colors because 2 of the kids like soft boiled eggs and 3 of the kids like hard boiled. We all enjoyed them.
What kind of eggs do you make on Easter? Do you have a family tradition?
Happy Easter every one! Have a great Sunday!
