Crackled Colored Eggs

A fun new twist on an old favorite.

  • 6 eggs
  • 6 assorted food coloring colors, neon colors work great
  • 6 cups hot water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
  1. Cook eggs by placing them in a saucepan in a single layer. Cover with water to 1-inch above the eggs. Heat just to boiling, cover the pan and remove it from the heat. Let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Immediately run cold water over eggs until they're cool to the touch. Once the eggs are cool, roll them gently on the counter top to crack the shells.
  3. Choose your favorite food coloring and place a few drops of each color in their own cup. Fill the cups with 3/4 cup hot water, add 1/2 teaspoon distilled vinegar to each cup, place eggs into the cups. Allow them to sit for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Remove eggs from water/vinegar mixture. Peel back the shells and reveal your finished eggs!
