Kool-Aid Coloured Eggs



The kids, Hubby and I coloured Easter eggs this morning. I totally forget to buy a kit, but thankfully I had seen this method floating around the internet for the past week or so. I can't really credit a source on this one, since SO MANY bloggers/recipe sites are sharing this. Google Kool-Aid Eggs and you'll get a ton of results, LOL.

Anyway, since I had a ton of Kool-Aid in the cupboard, from last summer, I decided to go ahead and try this. If you have a big variety of colours, this method is fabulous and a total no brainer. I thankfully I had neat flavours like ice blue raspberry lemonade (which turned the eggs a beautiful light blue colour) and strawberry-kiwi (which was a beautiful light pink hue), because flavours like cherry, strawberry and fruit punch are pretty much the same. So the key here is to get as many colours as you can, of the drink mix (remembering that all the red flavours will be the same tint of red).




The kids had a blast and Hubby had to create his yearly Star Wars egg. This year with the vibrant red colour, he decided to create a Darth Maul egg (which is a Sith Lord in the SW series). Mr.B loved it so much, he decided to attempt a Storm Trooper. I think it's pretty cute!




Kool-Aid Coloured Eggs

a variety of Kool-Aid drink mix packets, in assorted colours
water
disposable cups or narrow dishes

Pour 2/3 C water into each disposable drink cup. Add 1 packet of drink mix into each cup; stir to dissolve. Dip cooked eggs (shell on) into desired colours. For darker colours, let eggs sit for several minutes in desired colour. Refrigerate after colouring.

I actually did this last night! Though my red eggs came out sort of orange.
