Instead of dying easter eggshells, these dyed Easter Deviled Eggs have the shells removed. Once the eggs have been boiled and peeled, you will place them in a food coloring mixture. Let them sit for about 10 minutes, or until the desired shades are achieved.
The eggs are delicate, so it’s important to be patient and move gently. We used gel food coloring in regular and neon colors. I find that the gel doesn’t dissolve in water as easily as regular food coloring, but know that gel food coloring works just as well for coloring deviled eggs.
Using a spoon, gently place eggshells into each cup. You will also use a spoon to lift them out. Have a stack of paper towels prepared for the dyed eggs to dry. You can also pat them dry with additional paper towels if needed. While you’re waiting for the eggs to color/dry, can start making the filling.
I find that purple takes the longest and requires the most dye. However, it all depends on which kind of food coloring you have. How adorable are these Colored Deviled Eggs? Not only are they delicious, but they are also gorgeous for your Easter table. Be sure to make plenty of them, because they disappear quickly!
