The ingredients for Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs are hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, large black olives, salt and pepper and candy googly eyes. I’ve seen them done without the eyes, so if you can’t find googly eyes, they still will be cute!
How to make Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs!
To get started making these cute Halloween treats gather your ingredients and cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
Remove the yolks and place in a small bowl.
Add mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper. Mash with a fork until smooth.
Fill the eggs with the yolk mixture.
Slice 3 olives in half lengthwise. Place 1/2 of an olive on top of the yolk mixture.
Slice the rest of the olives in half lengthwise, and then slice each half horizontally into thin strips to make the legs. Place three legs on each side of the olive on top of the egg yolk mixture. Repeat for the rest of the eggs.
Add two googly eyes to each “spider.”
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
You can make these cute deviled eggs ahead of time, but don’t add the eyes or other Halloween candy for decorations until you are ready to serve them. The candy will melt in your refrigerator, and you will have a mess!
For easy to peel eggs, use eggs that are several days old. The fresher the egg, the harder they are to peel. For shells that slip right off, place the eggs in a pot filled with enough water to cover them by one inch. Heat the water on high until it comes to a rolling boil.
Remove the pot from the heat and cover with a tight-fitting lid. After 15 minutes, drain the water from the pot and run cold water over the eggs. This stops the cooking process. Once the eggs are cool to the touch, tap one on a countertop until it’s covered with cracks, then roll it on a countertop under the palm of your hand. Start peeling from the large end under cold running water and the shell should come right off.
