Put food coloring on the shell so that it goes in the cracks – rubbing it gently.  Let dry for a couple of minutes and then rinse.  Do this will all 12 eggs and let them dry.

Slice them in half lengthwise and gently scoop out the yolks.  Set the whites on a serving dish and put all the yolks in a bowl.
