Easter is this Sunday! Time to boil eggs, host an Easter Egg Hunt, and get a basket from the Easter Bunny. There are also Deviled Eggs, Egg salad sandwiches, and other egg-tastic recipes we all love to eat. This year, thanks to Nickelodeon, we can add a little color to all our egg recipes with the help of Blue and Magenta from Blue’s Clues and You! (affiliate link).
While this recipe can be used to color eggs in any recipe (imagine a pink and blue egg salad sandwich), this specific recipe is for Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs. Deviled Eggs are delicious treats but they are also very repetitive with the standard clump of yellow mash on a white egg. By following some simple instructions and adding a bit of food dye, our Deviled Eggs go from a boring snack to a pink and blue party. Use a piping bag to create paw prints and our treats become a Blue’s Clue.
Here are the items and ingredients we will need to make these Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs:
- 6 Hard boiled eggs
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tsp mustard
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 cup cold water
- Food Coloring, blue and pink
- 2 icing bags
- 2 medium round icing tips
- wax paper
- Slotted spoon
- 2 coffee mugs
Sometimes boiling an egg takes some weird special skill and almost magic like calculations. It took me a while to find that perfect ‘goldilocks zone’ to cook the best hardboiled eggs. This is how I get mine nearly perfect each time. Of course there are days where the stove dislikes me, and/or the eggs dislike me, and/or the water dislikes me. No matter what I do, the eggs still will not do as they are told. On those days, I take a break and refuse to let a little old egg ruin my day. Scrambled is just as good as hardboiled. hahaha
How to boil eggs:
- Place 6 eggs in a small pot and fill the pot with water until the eggs are covered.
- Heat the water to a boil.
- Once the water starts to boil, set the timer to 10 min.
- After the 10 minutes are up, remove the pot from the heat.
- Let the eggs sit in the hot water for another 10 min.
- Rinse with cold water and let cool.
The eggs are now ready to be made into Blue and Magenta Deviled Eggs. To get the instructions on how to make the Deviled Eggs click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. Then print and create for a delicious Blue’s Clues and You Easter celebration.
