Yet another edible egg dyeing method comes courtesy of the Kraft Heinz My Food and Family blog. It calls for nothing more than Kool-Aid (again, you can substitute a generic version) and water, as well as hard-boiled eggs, of course. For each color you want to make, take 2 envelopes of powdered drink mix and place them into a cup. Use cherry for red, blueberry for blue, lemon for yellow…you get the idea. Stir 2 tablespoons of water into the powder and stir until the drink mix is completely dissolved.
Now comes the part where the Kool-Aid method breaks away from traditional egg-dyeing since you’ll actually be using it more as a paint. Take your plain boiled eggs and place them on a wire cooling rack in the sink and rinse them with cold water. Drizzle a spoonful of one color dye over the eggs, then drizzle on another color, and another – the aim is to make a sort of tie-dye pattern, although you can do whatever you like. Messy and splotchy is good, though, so no need to feel like there’s one right way to do it. After you’ve splotched dye over all the eggs, gently rinse with cold water again to set the dye. Also, remember to rinse your sink, unless you like that tie-dye effect there, too. Using tongs, transfer each egg to a paper towel-covered baking sheet and let them dry completely. Don’t they look kool? Ohhh, yeahhh!
