Can you dye Cool Whip with food coloring?

What is the best way to dye Easter eggs?
Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops food color in a cup to achieve desired colors. Repeat for each color. Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from dye.
Is it better to dye eggs hot or cold?
Drain out the hot water, and fill the pot with cold water to stop the cooking process and make the eggs easier to handle. Grab your mugs or bowls and fill them with enough hot water to cover an egg completely. As a general rule, more dye and a longer dip time will result in a deeper egg color.

Should eggs be room temperature before dying?
Do not keep eggs warm or at room temperature (between 40° and 140°F) for more than 2 hours. Store in refrigerator until it’s time to dye the eggs. Dye the eggs in water warmer than the eggs so they don’t absorb the dye water.
