My Dad and Step Mom are having their first Halloween party tomorrow night for the kids, and we are all 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. My daughter loved getting in the kitchen and even helped cut the black olives for the spiders and eyes.

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 black olive spiders and eye balls!

Have fun with this and use any food coloring you'd like for the center of the eye, or keep it the color of the Miracle Whip or Mayo. 

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 you have. Enjoy and have a great Halloween!!
