Kool-Aid-Tye-Dye-Easter-Eggs-63127

We are always looking to find new ways to dye our Easter Eggs and this one is on my list this year!  Bet they will smell great too!

KOOL-AID Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

2 env.  (0.13 to 0.16 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any red color (try Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry or Tropical Punch flavor)
2 env.  (0.14 oz. to 0.15 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any orange color (try Orange, Mango or Peach Mango flavor)
2 env.  (0.13 oz. to 0.23 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any yellow or green color (try Lemonade, Piña or Lemon-Lime flavor)
2 env.  (0.22 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any blue color (try Mixed Berry or Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavor)
1/2 cup  water, divided
1-1/2 doz.  hard-cooked eggs, cooled
Directions:
MIX contents of 2 (same-flavored) KOOL-AID envelopes with 2 Tbsp. water in 6- to 8-oz. container; stir to dissolve drink mixes. Repeat in 3 separate containers with remaining KOOL-AID envelopes.
PLACE eggs on cooling rack in sink; rinse eggs with tap water.
SPOON KOOL-AID mixtures, 1 at a time, over wet eggs to create tie-dye patterns. Repeat with remaining eggs.
POUR a little tap water over each egg to set colors. Use tongs to transfer eggs to paper towel-covered baking sheet to dry. Rinse sink immediately as needed.
 

I can never seem to cook a hard boiled egg so I found this great recipe on Facebook Incredible Egg Fan Page

Prep Time: 1 minute | Cook Time: 15 to 22 minutes | Makes: As desired 

Here’s How
1. PLACE eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. ADD cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. HEAT over high heat just to boiling. REMOVE from burner. COVER pan.

2. LET EGGS STAND in hot water about 15 minutes for large eggs (12 minutes for medium eggs; 18 minutes for extra large).

3. DRAIN immediately and serve warm. OR, cool completely under cold running water or in bowl of ice water, then REFRIGERATE.

ENJOY
• Pack hard-cooked eggs for lunch to eat out-of-hand. Slice or cut into wedges for tossed salad. Color and decorate for Easter.

INSIDER INFO
• Hard-cooked, not hard-boiled. Although the cooking water must come to a full boil in this method, the pan is immediately removed from the heat so that the eggs cook gently in the hot water. This produces tender, not rubbery, eggs and minimizes cracking.

• Banish the greenish ring. This harmless but unsightly discoloration that sometimes forms around hard-cooked yolks results from a reaction between sulfur in the egg white and iron in the yolk. It occurs when eggs have been cooked for too long or at too high a temperature. Our method – cooking eggs in hot, not boiling, water, then cooling immediately – minimizes this.

• Food safety precaution: Piercing shells before cooking is not recommended. If not sterile, the piercer or needle can introduce bacteria into the egg. Also, piercing creates hairline cracks in the shell, through which bacteria can enter after cooking.

• Never microwave eggs in shells. Steam builds up too quickly inside and eggs are likely to explode.

• Very fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. To ensure easily peeled eggs, buy and refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance of cooking. This brief “breather” allows the eggs time to take in air, which helps separate the membranes from the shell.

• Hard-cooked eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling. Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.

• To peel a hard-cooked egg: Gently tap egg on countertop until shell is finely crackled all over. Roll egg between hands to loosen shell. Starting peeling at large end, holding egg under cold running water to help ease the shell off.

• Storage time: In the shell, hard-cooked eggs can be refrigerated safely up to one week. Refrigerate in their original carton to prevent odor absorption. Once peeled, eggs should be eaten that day.

• High altitude cooking: It’s almost impossible to hard-cook eggs above 10,000 feet.


Here are a few sites to help with the egg coloring too!

I am always looking for cute little gifts for Holiday’s and with Easter just around the corner… These are super cute!   I am going to make a few for a couple of my son’s friends.

Envelope Bunnies How-To

1. Seal the flap of an envelope, and draw bunny ears on the sealed side, as shown below. You can draw your own or use our bunny ear template.

2. Cut along the line through both layers of the envelope.

3. Flip the envelope over; what was the side of the envelope becomes the bottom of your treat holder.

4. Cut pink construction paper to make eyes and insides of ears, and glue them on the front of the envelope. Use colored pencil for mouth; glue on a pom-pom nose. Fill with yummy Easter sweets.
