Kool Eggs

This is the first year I finally bit the bullet and dyed eggs with Jacob. It just seemed so messy and with a WILD and CRAZY toddler? No, thanks.

But! I found this recipe for Kool-Aid eggs and I thought it was a genius (and less messy) idea! And the eggs turned out really cute (and they smell good)!

First you need to boil the eggs. This is simple, y'all.

Put all your eggs in a single layer in a sauce pan, fill with just enough cool water to cover the eggs, add 1 tsp. of salt, bring to a rolling boil for a few minutes, then turn off the heat and let it sit covered for 15 minutes. At this point, I transferred the eggs to a Tupperware container and put them in the fridge for the next morning.

When you're ready to dye the eggs, pour the Kool-Aid packets in cups and then add 2/3 cup water to each.

We used a whisk, as you can see, and Jacob could easily do it all by himself!

"Ooooo....look mom! Bluuuuue!!!"

That's it! So simple and easy! I wish I would've gotten a picture of Jacob trying one of the eggs. LOL! His face was priceless. And no, they do not taste like Kool-Aid, much to Jacob's dismay. :)
