These Slow Cooker Dyed Easter Eggs are such a great way to dye and hardboil your eggs at the same time!
Easter is right around the corner and I love dyeing eggs. When I figured out I could dye eggs in the slow cooker I was impressed!!
It is so easy to create these brightly colored eggs right in the crockpot. What I love best is you put your raw eggs in the slow cooker and they hardboil and dye at the same time!! I love the vibrant color these eggs achieved, so pretty.
I did four sections and used 4 colors but you can make more sections if you like.
I think my favorite part of making these in the slow cooker was how I did not get a lick of dye on my hands! I spend most of Easter trying to scrub all the dye off my hands lol.
I cant believe how well this worked, I was so happy with how they turned out!
So this Easter if you want to make some colorful eggs in a snap just pop them in the slow cooker!
You will love these eggs because it is
- Vibrant colors

Items you need

- 16 eggs- Use whatever size you like
- 16 cups water- you will use around this much, depending on your slow cooker size and the size of your eggs you may need more or less.

- Heavy duty aluminum foil- Heavy duty foil stands up better and makes the dividers sturdier.
