We can't get enough marble. Marble countertops? Yes! Marble cheese boards? Gimme! Marble canisters! We'll take three. Heck, we even swoon over colors that are swirled around to look like marble!

And so explains our reason for doing these DIY marbled Easter eggs.

Cool Whip > Shaving Cream

You may have seen these done online before, but those versions are all done with shaving cream. Given that we are a food site, we went with something much more edible: Cool Whip.

We recommend doing with this hard-boiled eggs, but you can also hollow out the shell if you prefer.

How To Marbleize Easter Eggs

Makes 1 to 2 dozen eggs

What You Need

Ingredients

  • Hardboiled eggs
  • Cool Whip (2 containers)
  • Food coloring

Equipment

  • A shallow baking pan or cookie sheet
  • Spoon
  • Skewer or toothpick
  • Disposable gloves
  • Paper towels
  • Egg carton

Instructions

  1. Collect your supplies: You don't need a ton of stuff, but if you have it all together at the start of the project, your crafternoon will go a lot smoother.
  2. Spoon out the Cool Whip: Spread the Cool Whip in an even layer into the baking pan or cookie sheet.
  3. Add the food coloring: Place drops of food coloring all around the top of the Cool Whip. Try to place them somewhat evenly.
  4. Create the marbling effect: Using a skewer or toothpick, gently swirl together the colors. Don't overmix or the colors will all blend together.
  5. Add the eggs: Roll your eggs — one at a time — through the Cool Whip until they are completely covered. You may want to pull on a pair of disposable gloves to keep the food coloring from getting all over your skin.
  6. Let the eggs sit: Pull the egg out of the Cool Whip and place it in a disposable egg carton. Repeat with the rest of the eggs. Let them sit for at least half an hour. The longer they set, the more the food coloring dyes the eggs. When time's up, gently pat the Cool Whip off the eggs and enjoy!
