Colored Deviled Eggs

I wanted to bring some kind of food with us to my Aunt and Uncle's house. For Easter, we made colored deviled eggs and they were a huge hit, so I thought of Christmas Deviled Eggs as a variation of the same idea. Should the words "Christmas" and "Deviled" go together? Yes they should when you want to make a crowd-pleasing appetizer for a Christmas party.

They are easy and quick (I mean, it took us an hour from start to finish as we realized we were running short on time before the party...oops).

Step 1: Hard boil the eggs. This was the most time consuming part because we had to wait while the eggs cooked.

Step 2: Prepare two bowls with the dye. In each bowl, place 6-7 drops of food coloring, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, and 1 cup of cold water. Stir.

Step 3: When the eggs are done, cool them with cold water and peel them.

Step 4: Slice the eggs in half and set aside the yolks to make the filling.

Step 5: Place the egg halves in the dye bowls and let them stay in there until they are the desired color. Mine turned out a little more pastel than I wanted, but we were short on time.

Step 6: Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Use whatever favorite recipe you like for deviled eggs.

Step 7: Let the dyed eggs dry on a paper towel.

Step 8: Once dried, stuff the dyed egg halves with the filling and sprinkle with parsley.

To make Easter colored eggs, I used pastel food coloring to get the results I wanted. They turned out great!
