Spooky Spiders and Creepy Eyes Deviled Eggs Recipe





My Dad and Step Mom are having their first Halloween party tomorrow night for the kids, and we all are bringing some Halloween themed foods to share! I decided to bring these fun deviled eggs! They are spooky, creepy and oh so perfect for a Halloween party! Deviled eggs are a huge hit with our family on any occasion, so I know they will love them, even though they are full of spiders and eye balls! Haha! Have fun with this and use any food coloring you'd like for the center of the eye. I used the end of a chopstick to fill them in, but if you have a piping bag, that would work even better! Make do with what's handy! Enjoy and have a great Halloween!!

Spooky Spiders and Creepy Eyes Deviled Eggs (print recipe)

What you need:
12 hard boiled eggs, peeled and rinsed*
1/2 cup Miracle Whip plus an additional 1-2 tablespoons, divided
1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sugar
salt and pepper, as desired
paprika
medium sized black olives
1 drop food coloring

Directions:
Cut each hard boiled egg in half lengthwise. Pop the yolks out into a bowl, and set the whites aside on a platter.

Smash yolks with a fork or potato masher until large lumps are broken up. Add Miracle Whip, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well until evenly combined. Scoop yolk mixture into a plastic ziploc bag, snip off the corner and seal. Pipe yolk mixture into each egg white. Sprinkle with paprika.

Slice 3 olives in half lengthwise for the spider bodies. Slice another 6 olives in half lengthwise, and cut them lengthwise again into 4 strips on each half of the olive for the legs. Place the spider body and 8 legs on 6 of the eggs.

Slice 3 more olives in half to make 6 rings. Press olive ring into yolk mixture. Mix 1-2 tablespoons Miracle Whip with 1 drop food coloring in a small bowl. Fill the center of the olive ring with colored Miracle Whip. Chill until serving!

*My Mom's recipe for hard boil eggs: Place eggs in a large sauce pan. Cover eggs with hot water. Bring to a boil, and continue to boil over medium high heat for 15 minutes. Drain and immediately rinse and soak with cold water until eggs are cooled down.
