Aren’t these Christmas deviled eggs cute? You could also make these in Easter colors if you wanted.
- – Boil eggs.
- – Slice and remove yoke.
- – Die egg whites like you would Easter eggs with the shell on.
Tips for Peeling Boiled Eggs:
- Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover them with cool water by 1 inch.
- Slowly bring water to a boil over medium/medium high heat.
- When the water has reached a boil, cover and remove from heat. Let sit 12 minutes.
- Transfer eggs to a strainer and place under cool running water to stop the eggs from cooking.
- Once eggs are cooled they can be peeled immediately. You could also refrigerate them till you’re ready to peel and die them the next day.
Dying Eggs 101:
- Drop the food color into wide mouth glasses and then add water.
- Carefully drop the egg white halves.
- Don’t forget, the longer you let the eggs sit in the food color, the darker the colors will be.
Oh my, I LOVE that these are colored. This was the first Christmas I didn’t make deviled eggs. I love how festive these look.

How did you get your colors sooo Vibrant? I swear, no matter how long i let mine sit, they still turn out pastel
Just made the eggs I had to put very little water with a little vinegar along with the color .to make the vibrant color. Came out good
Now those are the “cutest” deviled eggs I have ever seen!! Wow!!

This looks so easy. I had no idea it was so simple to do. Yours turned out lovely.
I’m so glad to have found this magnificent display of devil Christmas eggs. Vibrant colors. Thank you
These look so cute but no sure about a couple things ! Do I use vinegar With water and color or will you taste the vinegar and do I leave the shell on the halved egg ? Help
I just used water without the vinegar. I recommend removing the shell prior to dying for the brightest color. 🙂 Enjoy!
Did you remove the yolks before dying the eggs, or did you dye the eggs whole?
Good question! I dyed the whole egg (minus the shell) but I suppose you could remove the yolk first if you wanted to! Either way should work fine.

Does this process turn your teeth red/green?
I didn’t notice any colored teeth. Maybe if you ate a whole lot? I’m not sure.
So cute! About how long did you leave your eggs in the dye to get them so vibrant? Trying to gauge my timing for making these this week 🙂 Thanks!
It’s been so long now I really can’t remember, I’m sorry!
