Special Equipment Needed

How to Make Solid-Colored Easter Eggs

Pour contents of 1 envelope of each flavor KOOL-AID Drink Mix into separate 10- to-12 oz. container. Add 2/3 cup water to each; stir to dissolve drink mix. Use spoon to place 1 hard-cooked egg in each cup, keeping egg submerged until desired color is reached. Continue with remaining eggs. Let dry as directed in recipe.

Special Extra

Place assorted rubber bands around hard-cooked eggs before dipping in cups of KOOL-AID mixtures; let dry completely before removing rubber bands. For a two-tone effect, dip the dry colored eggs again in a lighter-colored prepared KOOL-AID.


Experiment with other KOOL-AID flavors for different color patterns. Use black cherry, strawberry or tropical punch for red; mango or peach mango for orange; or lemon-lime or piña for yellow.


Wear disposable gloves when coloring the eggs to prevent your hands from becoming discolored.

What I've done for a "quicie" is just put the pkg of kool aid into the water when I boil all the eggs. Blue is good cuz it looks like Robin's eggs. Then the eggs are boiled and dyed all in one step!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Kids LOVE doing this!! With the low cost of Kool Aid and the ease of finding it, I've been dyeing Easter eggs this way with my kids for years. We have had to play around with the colors (add a package of orange to the yellow to make it a brighter yellow and the grape definitely turns out more gray so we add 2 packages of red to give it a little better shade). So easy and low cost!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The success of this really depends on the koolaid flavors. The success of this really depends on the koolaid flavors. Unfortunately the stores didn't have most of the ones mentioned & the colors I used didn't turn out too bright. Do not use grape flavor it is black. I don't know if I'd try it again but it was quick & easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried this and it didn't work. I tried this and it didn't work. The color came off the eggs. It was grainy and the eggs looked horrible. I won't be trying this again. The colors just didn't stick to the shell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Colors, but... ... if touched when wet, the color literally peels right off. A bit frustrating. Probably won't try again, or may try using vinegar in the water next time.
