Colored Deviled Eggs

Fun and festive, perfect for Easter, holidays, sporting events, and more! Fast and simple, a great project for kids.
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 12 deviled eggs


  • 6 hard boiled eggs peeled
  • 4 food colorings of choice


  • Slice your peeled, hard boiled eggs in half and scoop out the yolks into a small bowl.
  • Fill four cups with 1/2 cup of water in each. Place 4 drops of food coloring in each cup in your desired colors.
  • Put three egg halves into each color. Let them sit until you reach your desired darkness. For lighter colors, this could take just 15 minutes. For darker colors such as these pictures, it will be closer to one hour.
  • Meanwhile, make your egg yolk mixture.
  • When the eggs are your desired color, drain them on paper towels to remove the extra moisture.
  • Fill eggs with your egg yolk mixture. Chill until ready to serve.


Use your favorite deviled egg recipe, such as this traditional deviled egg!
I used neon food coloring which is why they are so bright and dark (plus I left them in longer!).  You can get a softer, pastel look by using regular (non-neon) dye and leaving them in a shorter period of time.
