Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs are an easy Halloween snack for the kids. These adorable Halloween deviled eggs also make a perfect appetizer for your Halloween party.
Beware, even though these Halloween deviled eggs are spooky and look complicated, you won’t believe how easy these Halloween treats are to make! Even your little ones can help prepare this fun to make and eat Halloween recipe.
To save time, I used pre-made hard-boiled eggs to make these spooky deviled eggs. Yes, I know, this is the height of laziness, but I couldn’t help myself. Plus, it took about eight hours to figure out how to make the 48-second “how-to” video below. I could have boiled and peeled hundreds of eggs in that time.
Where to find Googly Eyes?
You can find “candy googly eyes” at your grocery store or just about any hobby store that sells baking supplies. I found mine at Michael’s, but I also saw them at a Publix grocery store in the cake mix section, and you can find them online.
How many calories in Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs?
These delightful delightfully spooky deviled eggs come in at only 55 calories per spider. That’s a win in my book!

Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs Ingredients:
The ingredients for Halloween 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 will still be cute!
How to make Halloween Spooky Spider Deviled Eggs:
To get started making these cute Halloween eggs gather the ingredients.
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 each 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.
Sharon’s Expert Tips:
It’s easier if you use a pair of tweezers to add the legs and eyes to the body of the spider.
You can make these cute deviled eggs 24 hours 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!
If you have ever been frustrated because you couldn’t get the shells off of your hard-boiled eggs, check out my post-Perfect Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs! With my method of steaming eggs, the shell falls right off. Well, it doesn’t fall off, but the eggs are easy to peel, and the shell does come off in several large pieces.
