An alternative to shaving cream eggs, whipped tie dye eggs are a simple yet fun way to dye eggs for your kiddos. The process is less messy than old-fashioned egg dying, and you don’t have to worry if you accidentally lick your fingers during the egg-dying process!
How to Make Whipped Tie Dye Eggs
- 12 hard-boiled eggs
- 2 cups of vinegar
- 8 ounces of whipped cream
- Gel food coloring
- Large bowl
- Muffin tin
- Place the eggs in the bowl, pour the vinegar over the eggs, and soak for at least five minutes.
- Dry the eggs with a paper towel or a soft cloth and set aside to dry thoroughly.
- Fill the wells of a standard muffin tin with whipped cream and add several drops of different colored food coloring to the whipped cream.
- Use a spoon to swirl the food coloring into the whipped cream, creating a tie dye pattern.
- Add one egg to each well and roll the egg in the whipped cream to fully coat. Allow the egg to sit in the whipped cream for ten minutes.
- Remove the egg from the whipped cream and wipe it clean with a paper towel. Alternatively, you can rinse under cold water and pat dry.
Use the whipped tie dye eggs to decorate or enjoy as a delicious snack!
