Kool Aid Easter Eggs

Hard boiling eggs used to be a pain before I got my Instant Pot, now it’s so easy!!

At first I wasn’t so sure how I was going to do it without something that would keep my eggs secure. I didn’t want them to break. This Instant Pot egg rack steamer from solves that problem.

Coloring Easter Eggs with Kool Aid

I just make perfectly hard boiled eggs in my pressure cooker with this 2 tier rack you see here. I will share this below too if you want to make hard boiled eggs in bulk. So easy making 14 all at once.

This is plenty for us most of the time. The rack is great for transferring dyed eggs too so the color doesn’t come off. If transferring eggs to paper towel some color will be removed. A rack is better.

Check out how brilliantly colored these Kool Aid Easter eggs come out! With just one pack and a bit of water the blue, orange, red, and pink come out brightly colored!

To make things even more fun when eating them, make colored deviled eggs with them!

Dyeing Easter Eggs with Kool Aid

You’re going to want to empty 1 packet of Kool Aid into each cup & stir until completely dissolved. Choose darker colors for the best results. For example the lemonade flavor for yellow will take much longer to really get yellow eggs.

You could make them tie dye by placing a rubber band around the center and another around the top and bottom so the color doesn’t touch that area.

If you put a paper towel or a wad of paper towels below the rack it will make clean up easier. Remember that it will drip so don’t put it right on a white countertop or something you don’t want colored.

Ingredients

  • 6 packets Kool Aid different colors
  • 4.5 c water 3/4 c. each cup

Instructions

  • To dye Easter eggs add 3/4 cup of cold water into a cup or a bowl (I like to use paper to just throw away at the end). Empty 1 packet of Kool Aid into each cup.
  • Stir well so the powder dissolves. You should have several different colors, 1 in each cup.
  • Use a spoon to lower one cooked, cooled hard boiled egg into each cup. Turn after about 2 minutes.
  • Leave in for a total of about 4 minutes. The longer the more vibrant the colors will be.
  • Use a slotted spoon to lift each egg out and place on to a rack or back into the egg carton to dry. Rinse spoon in between each color so you don't mix them and alter the colors.

Notes

Put paper towels or a plate underneath the rack as they dry so it doesn’t drip and stain counters.

** Tip – I use plastic bowls / plates and spoons so they can be thrown away. Kool Aid dye can stain fabric and even fingers for a bit so use spoon to lower and lift out eggs washing hands afterward.
