Who says Easter has to be yellow and fluffy? Who says it has to be all about chocolate Easter eggs? I’ve gone for a pink theme here with my pretty eggs. Here’s how to make marbled Easter eggs yourself. So easy the kids can make them.
I thought these pink marbled Easter eggs made such a different and pretty scene and are so easy to create. Oh and it is food colouring I use so it doesn’t effect the taste at all so you can eat these gorgeous hardboiled eggs for breakfast too.
How to make marbled Easter eggs
Place your chosen eggs in a small pan with cold water and bring to the boil. Bubble away for 10 minutes and then run under cold water to stop getting that greenish black ring round the yolk.
Gently roll the egg on a hard surface like the kitchen table to crack the shell. Don’t press too hard as you don’t want to split it completely, just get crazed cracking all over the entire shell. Roll in different directions to achieve this.
Pop the eggs into a bowl or jug and cover with cold water. Now add a few drops of food colouring and give it a stir to distribute the colour. Leave this overnight.
Next morning pour off the coloured water and gently remove the shells. The eggs inside will have this amazing marbled effect. Pink is beautiful and blue a delight.
Go on try these marbled Easter eggs yourself. The kids will love having a go at this one.
Have a wonderful Easter.
