How to make Dinosaur Eggs from Jurassic Park | CookFiction.com

Name: Dinosaur Eggs

Inspired by: Jurassic Park

Serving Size: 6 eggs

Secret Ingredient: Tonic water (to make eggs glow)

"Oh my God. Do you know what this is? This is a dinosaur egg. The dinosaurs are breeding." - Dr. Alan Grant

Chef's Note

We were inspired to make these because of the green Jell-O scene in the original Jurassic Park. They're a little messy to actually eat, but cracking them open to find a prize is a fun activity for kids - and they glow in the dark!


Making the Dinosaur Eggs

You will need:

  • 1 or more packages Jell-O (more flavors means more egg colors)
  • 1 1/2 cup cold water per package
  • 1/2 cup tonic water per package (makes the eggs glow under a black light)
  • 6 eggs
  • 6 edible dinosaurs or similar treats to hide inside each egg


  1. Using a sharp knife or your fingers, break off the top of each egg and pour its contents into a bowl. (You can use the raw egg for another recipe or store it in the fridge for later.
  2. Wash the inside of each eggshell thoroughly, and set on paper towels to dry.
  3. Empty the contents of 1 Jell-O package into a large heat-safe bowl.
  4. Boil 1 cup of the water.
  5. Pour the boiling water into the bowl, and mix until the powder has dissolved.
  6. Stir in tonic water and remaining cold water, and set aside.
  7. Repeat for remaining Jell-O packages.
  8. Place a tiny edible dinosaur (or a similar treat) inside each eggshell.
  9. Using a spoon, fill each egg with Jell-O mixture.
  10. Set filled eggs in an egg carton and place in the fridge to harden.
  11. Once Jell-O has become firm (at least 1 hour), carefully crack open eggs for a Jurassic surprise!
