The Easter Bunny brings my kids dye-free candy!!!
Hippity, Hoppity, Easter's on it's way and the Easter Bunny is bringing my kids dye-free candy again - I'm sure of it!!! In case you are wondering how the Easter Bunny makes dye-free candy, you can find the same types of special candy and chocolates at the Natural Candy Store www.naturalcandystore.com, The Whole Foods Market, Trader Joes, or The Red Dye Free Store (on this blog).
Our family makes Easter Eggs colored with Natural Dyes. Better Homes and Gardens magazine had an article in the April 2012 issue about dyeing Easter eggs - "just simmer beets or apple peals.....soak the eggs from a few minutes to overnight to get an array of hues." Look up BHG.com/eggdye to find out how to make more colors. They have a printable guide to natural egg dyes from blue to pink!
You can also buy some food dyes
like this one. We bought India Tree Natural Decorating colors a few years ago, but I need to buy more to keep on hand. We bought this dye from The Whole Foods Market. We used it to color our Easter Eggs and they came out very pastel colored - not the bright colored dye that you buy in the little kits that turn even the egg on the inside colors! We like to avoid consuming artificial colors and we also enjoy the natural colors.
I hope you all have a Happy Easter!
