Easter is Here | Game of Thrones Easter Eggs

I am a HUGE Game of Thrones fan! Since the second episode of the final season fell on Easter, I just had to make dragon Easter eggs! It was super easy, a little time consuming, and looked really cool when they were all done! Here is what you will need to make Game of Thrones eggs: Eggs, baking soda, vinegar, food coloring, rubber gloves to keep the dye off your fingers (I forgot this step!) and ziplock sandwich bags (1 for each egg).

I always boil my eggs using the same method. I bring water to a boil, stir in 1 teaspoon of baking soda, then gently lower in each egg using a slotted spoon. Boil for 10 minutes, then place the pan in the sink. I run cold water into the pan for a few minutes and let the eggs cool down. Normally, you then peel the eggs right away and they peel so easily!

But for this, we don’t want to peel them yet. Take each egg and gently tap it on a hard surface, creating tiny cracks. I found that once I had a few bigger cracks, I could gently press my finger into different parts of the egg to make more cracks along the surface. Make sure to do this softly because you don’t want big parts to crack or the shell to completely break.

After each egg is sufficiently cracked, place each egg into a sandwich bag. Don’t forget to put your rubber gloves on! Drop in 7 or 8 drops of food coloring onto each egg, seal the bag, and softly massage the color around the egg so that the color is spread around evenly. Let the eggs sit for 30 minutes for the color to soak in. Rinse each egg to get the dye out, then crack off the shells to reveal your beautiful marbled Game of Thrones style eggs! If you want to, you can splash on a little bit of vinegar on each egg. This will help the color stay a little better but isn’t necessary.
