Fizzy Fun to Fabulous: Dyeing Easter Eggs with Cool Whip and Edible Glitter

Easter has always held a special place in my heart. Growing up, the anticipation for this holiday was unmatched, mainly because it meant I could indulge in one of my favorite activities: boiling and decorating Easter eggs. This tradition was not only a highlight of my spring break but also a fun way to enjoy hard-boiled eggs. And let’s not forget about turning those uneaten ones into my favorite yummy treat-deviled eggs!!

Now, as a mom, I get to share this excitement with my children. They absolutely adore the activity, and each year, I aim to add a new twist to keep their creativity flowing and our traditions alive. This year, I decided to explore two unique decorating techniques: the fizzy dye eggs method and the cool whip technique, with a special twist—edible glitter to give our Easter eggs an amazing, antique look.

Ingredients

Scale

Fizzy Dye Egg Technique

This method brings a bit of science into our Easter craft, making it even more exciting for the kids. Here’s a quick rundown:

Materials:

Hard-boiled eggs

Small bowls, cups, or a muffin tin

Baking soda

Water

Food coloring

Cool Whip Technique

For those who love a more tactile and visually striking result, the cool whip method is a must-try.

Materials:

2 containers (16 oz each) of Cool Whip

Neon gel food coloring

Vinegar

Hard-boiled eggs

Instructions

Fizzy Dye Egg Technique

Boil your eggs and let them cool in an ice bath.

In your chosen containers, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1-2 teaspoons of water, and 2-3 drops of food coloring to create a paste.

Dry the cooled eggs and roll them in the baking soda mixture.

Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar on the eggs and watch the fizzy magic happen.

Once the fizzing stops, rinse the eggs and dry them.

 

Cool Whip Technique

Instructions:

Spread the Cool Whip in a 9×13 baking pan.

Drop multiple droplets of neon gel food coloring across the Cool Whip, then use a toothpick or knife to create swirls.

Soak the cooled, boiled eggs in vinegar for about 10-15 minutes.

Place the eggs in the Cool Whip mixture, rolling them to cover completely.

Let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse and dry the eggs.

Notes

Elevating the Eggs with Edible Glitter

To truly make our Easter eggs stand out, I decided to add an elegant touch with edible glitter. Here’s how:

Choose your desired edible glitter color; I went with gold for that antique look.

Using a small, wet paintbrush, dip into the glitter (I recommend pouring some into a glass dish to keep it dry).

Gently brush the glitter onto the eggs to achieve a beautiful, marbled effect
