When I saw these beautiful Easter eggs from Choose to Thrive I knew I had to give them a try! I didn’t have the egg molds so I was able to use dollar store plastic eggs to make these and it worked perfectly!

  1. On one end of the egg, ensure there is a hole big enough to use for filling the egg. (You can make it larger with scissors, a nail or a drill).
  2. Important: Oil the inside of each egg very well by dipping a paper towel into the oil and making sure the entire inside is covered.
  3. If your plastic egg has holes on both ends, place a very small spoonful (about 1 teaspoon) in the bottom of the styrofoam egg tray and place your plastic egg in the tray (the jello will be on the outside of the egg). Refrigerate about 5-10 minutes or until set. (This step will block the holes so the Jell-O doesn’t leak out).
  1. Combine 1 box of Jell-O with 1/2 cup boiling water. Stir until well dissolved.
  2. Using the plastic syringe, fill each egg 1/8 full with your first color. You should have just under 1/2 cup jello left over once you’ve done this step. Refrigerate the plastic eggs about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon greek yogurt to the remaining Jell-O and stir very well. Put this layer over the first layer of Jell-O.
  4. Repeat with the remaining colors of Jell-O allowing it to set between each layer. Allow to set 4 hours or overnight.
  5. To unmold the Jell-O, run each egg under hot tap water for about 3-4 seconds. Gently squeeze the egg and you should see the Jell-O release from the mold. If not, gently run it under water again for a few more seconds.
