These Dyed Deviled Eggs are such a fun way to celebrate easter – or any occasion! The egg whites are easily transformed into bright hued beauties.

One of my husbands favorite appetizers to eat year-round is deviled eggs, but I’ve always hated how bland they looked so I wanted to put a fun spin on them for Easter this year! I made the colors a fun spring vibe and they turned out perfect!

These brightly colored eggs are also the perfect addition to a kids table… just imagine the excitement!

Tips On How To Dye Deviled Eggs

First things first, make sure you have eggs! I like to hard-boil and peel the eggs when I have some time on my hands and then store them in the fridge until ready to dye. I soak my peeled eggs in the food coloring water only for about and hour, but you can definitely do longer if you’d like the entire egg white to be colored! I fancy just a thin layer of color, but feel free to go big!
