One thing that seems to be in short supply are eggs.
We suggest this easy alternative to dyeing Easter eggs. We’re hoping your local grocer has plenty of marshmallows on hand. Hurry and add them to your Instacart right now so you can get a delivery before Easter.
Alternatives to Dyeing Easter Eggs
These “Insta-Glam Glitter Eggs” from the April ’17 issue of Good Housekeeping caught my eye as a very simple but beautiful way to dress up your eggs without the traditional dye and vinegar.
The traditionalist in me loves the idea of coloring Easter eggs but we often end up tossing out the eggs and it all is such a waste.
Last Minute Easter Treats
Marshmallows dipped in melted candy and sprinkled with edible glitter or sprinkles is not only a perfect alternative to dyed eggs this Easter, they are also a delicious treat.
How to Make Marshmallow Pops for Easter

Helpful Hints for the Perfect Marshmallow Pop
- Hand-dip the marshmallows instead of inserting the stick first and then dipping. Hand-dipping gives you far more control but watch your fingertips because the melted candy can be very hot.
- Use a cooling rack on top of a sheet pan so that the sheet pan can catch any runaway sprinkles.
- Store extras in a sealed container.
