Easy Easter Eggs from the Oven + Muffin Tin Egg Dying

Easter Eggs from the Oven

My newest fun thing to do with my handy dandy Handi Foil (our sponsor today) muffin tins is to bake eggs in the oven! I’m sure you have seen it on Pinterest a dozen time just like me. But I thought not only could I bake the eggs in the Handi Foil tins but I could easily use them to have the boys dye the eggs too!

Cooking Eggs in the Oven


Step 1: Place the eggs into your muffin tin.

Step 2: Place in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Step 3: Run cold water over eggs to stop the cooking process

It really is just that easy!

Easter Egg Dying In Muffin Tins

Dying your Eggs in Muffin Tins

This was a little trickier than I thought. You have to remember that you need to leave extra space in the tins for when the water rises when you add. So make sure and keep this in mind when filling your tin. I did 2 tablespoons of water to 2 tablespoons of vinegar in each of the spots in the tin. Then I added the little color tablets.

I just bought one of those dollar dying kits to make things easy for us. You can use food color to create your dye also.

Techniques for Dying

We had a few easy techniques for dying our eggs

Just Roll Them

If you just want your egg to be one color just keep rolling your egg until it is the shade you want.

Dye Once, White Crayon, Dye Again

Choose a color, usually a lighter color is better, and start dying your egg.  Pull the egg out, dry it, and then draw things with a white crayon. Now place it into a new color and dye again. Anywhere the crayon you will see the original color.

Half & Half

Place the egg in the dye and do not move! Wait for a bit to let the color set then pull the egg out, flip over and put in a new color.

Quick Clean Up

The one nice thing about doing everything in the Handi Foil tins was the quick and easy clean up. Dump the dye and recycle* the tins and you are done.

*Quick Fact: Aluminum tins are 100% recyclable, reworkable and Handi Foils Eco-Foil line is made out of 100% recycled aluminum because Aluminum is the only material that can be recycled indefinitely without losing its qualities
