Ingredients

-eggs (use as many as you want to)

-1/2 cup rice /per bag

Instructions

Boil the eggs.

Cool them for a few minutes.

IMPORTANT! You want eggs to be warmer because the color will stick better.

While the eggs are cooling, lets prepare colored rice.

Use one plastic bag per color of your choice. (I started with red)

Pour 1/2 cup of rice in bag #1

Squeeze a liberal amount of red food coloring into it.

Shake the rice so it is is coated. Make as many bags as you want to.

Add your egg, close the bag and shake the egg.

Imagine you are a very gently bartender. Shake it for 30 to 45 seconds.

Now, find the bag number 2 and repeat the steps above.

Use as many bags as you wanted.

Rice will dry very quickly so keep adding more color into the bag.

Enjoy your creation!
