Clover Tie Dye Whipped Cream Easter Eggs

*Idea inspired by


  • 1 pint Clover Organic or Natural Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Liquid food coloring in various colors (we used red, green, yellow, & blue)
  • 1-2 dozen Clover Cage Free Extra Large Eggs, hard boiled and cooled
  • White vinegar


To hard boil the eggs:

  1. Gently put the eggs in a pot and cover completely with cold water. Place on stove over high heat.
  2. When the eggs come to a full boil, remove the pot from the stove. Cover and set aside for 12 minutes.
  3. Carefully remove the eggs from the pot with a spoon or tongs and transfer to a dish-towel lined pan with a rim. Cool to room temperature.

To color the eggs:

1. Place (1) pint Clover Heavy Whipping Cream in a large mixing bowl and whip with an electric mixer on high speed until creamy peaks form. Spread the whipped cream in a large baking dish with sides.

2. Mix each food color separately with a couple of drops of vinegar in its own cup. Drip the food coloring liberally over the whipped cream, keeping a space of about 1 inch between drops.

3. Use a spoon handle or knife to swirl the colors around the whipped cream. Do not over-mix or the colors will become muddy!

4. Pour vinegar into a large bowl and submerge the eggs in vinegar for about 2 minutes.  Remove and dry with a paper towel. Set aside.

5. Working with one egg at a time, gently roll each egg in the colored cream in a single, continuous motion. *Food coloring will stain your fingers; use thin rubber gloves to avoid staining if desired. Set colored egg aside on a plate. Continue until all eggs are colored.

6. Let the eggs sit for 15 minutes. The longer they sit, the darker the color.

7. Gently blot each egg clean with a paper towel to remove excess whipped cream. Avoid rubbing too hard as the design will smear. Dry completely and refrigerate until ready to use.

Note:  Some of the food coloring may seep through the shell onto the egg white, but it is still perfectly edible.

Happy hunting!
