If you’ve ever tried to dye Easter eggs and had your dye turn out a different color than expected, you’re certainly not alone. Maybe that green was actually supposed to be teal. Or maybe whatever shade you were going for wound up being a dingy brown instead. Don’t fret — we’ve all been there.
But, thanks to McCormick, that doesn’t have to happen this year. Oh no, no more mishaps for you! Your egg-dyeing skills are about to get a major upgrade.
Why Settle For Less Than Perfect Eggs?
McCormick created a chart that lays out exactly how to get the desired color.
Want to get in on that trendy shade of dusty rose with your seasonal decorations? You’ll need precisely 14 drops of red and six drops of blue, as outlined in the guide below.
- Contains 0.5 fl oz bottles of red food color, yellow food color and blue food color
- Contains 0.5 fl oz bottles of pink food color, green food color and blue food color
Need help with more than just the color? McCormick’s really laying it all out for you! According to this nifty chart, you’ll need 1/2 cup of boiling water and one teaspoon of vinegar to get started. Then, add drops of dye and submerge the egg for about five minutes.
And there you have it, the best Easter eggs you’ve ever made.
