How to Make Solid-Colored Easter Eggs
Pour contents of 1 envelope of each KOOL-AID color into separate 10- to-12 oz. container. Add 2/3 cup water to each; stir to dissolve drink mix. Use spoon to place 1 hard-cooked egg in each cup, keeping egg submerged until desired color is reached. Continue with remaining eggs. Let dry as directed above.
Special Extra
Place assorted rubber bands around hard-cooked eggs before dipping in cups of KOOL-AID mixtures; let dry completely before removing rubber bands. For a two-tone effect, dip the dry colored eggs again in a lighter-colored prepared KOOL-AID.
Substitute
Experiment with other KOOL-AID flavors for different color patterns.

White Grape Peach Hawaiian Punch Spritzer

A delicious white grape spritzer is the perfect drink to bring in the New Year. Frozen fruit serves as yummy ice cubes and the super sour rim just might be sour enough to knock you into 2013.
What you need to make this delicious drink: 6 cans Welch’s white grape peach juice, 1 bottle cold sparkling white grape juice, fruit cocktail that you will freeze into pieces, Hawaiian Punch “singles to go” packets.
Dip the rim of a glass into the Welch’s white grape peach juice and then press the rim down into the Hawaiian Punch powder.
To create the Spritzer: 1. Add a few pieces of frozen fruit to the glass.  2. Fill half of the glass with Welch’s white grape peach juice. 3. Fill the rest of the glass with sparkling white grape juice.
Fruit flavored suckers make the perfect stirrers for these Super Sour White Grape Spritzer! If the Hawaiian Punch is too sour on the rim, use sugar instead.
