Directions 24 steps | 102 Minutes

Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients. Prepare the eggs. In a saucepan large enough to fit the eggs in a single layer, add about 2-3 inches of water. Bring the water to a boil.

Step 7309 Shot
Step 2

Once the water reaches a boil, gently lower the eggs into the water using either a slotted spoon or a mesh strainer. 

Step 7310 Shot
Step 3

Boil the eggs for 12 minutes. While the eggs are boiling, prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with cold water and ice. Use a slotted spoon or a mesh strainer to remove the eggs from the boiling water to the ice bath. Let the eggs cool for about 4-7 minutes.

Step 7313 Shot
Step 4

Remove the eggs from the ice bath, crack and peel the eggs.

Step 7314 Shot
Step 5

Slice six eggs vertically and two eggs horizontally. Remove the egg yolks into a bowl. 

Step 7316 Shot
Step 6

In the bowl with the egg yolks, add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and champagne vinegar. Mash to combine into a smooth paste. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Divide the mixture into four bowls.

Step 7317 Shot
Step 7

For the pumpkin eggs, add 1-2 drops of orange food coloring (or turmeric powder) to one bowl and mix until well combined. 

Step 7319 Shot
Step 8

Transfer the orange deviled egg mixture to a piping bag fitted with a small open star tip. Chop the chives into small ¼-inch pieces.

Step 7320 Shot
Step 9

In four vertical egg white halves, pipe the deviled egg mixture vertically (similar to the lines of a pumpkin). Top with a small piece of chive for the pumpkin stem. 

Step 7321 Shot
Step 10

For the devil bat eggs, seed and remove the ribs of the red bell pepper. 

Step 7322 Shot
Step 11

Use a sharp knife to cut a small ¾-1 inch long isosceles triangle. Cut out tiny triangles on one long side to create wings. Create eight wings. 

Step 7323 Shot
Step 12

Cut thin triangles for the horns. Create 8 horns.

Step 7324 Shot
Step 13

Transfer one bowl’s worth of the deviled egg filling into a piping bag fitted with an open star tip. 

Step 7325 Shot
Step 14

Slice a tiny sliver off of the bottom of each horizontal egg white to create a sturdy bottom. 

Step 7326 Shot
Step 15

Fill each egg white by piping the center with the prepared piping bag. 

Step 7328 Shot
Step 16

Place two wings and two horns on each horizontal egg white. 

Step 7329 Shot
Step 17

For the spider eggs, cut the black olives lengthwise. Keep four halves intact. Slice the remaining halves crosswise for the legs.  

Step 7330 Shot
Step 18

Transfer one bowl’s worth of the deviled egg filling into a piping bag fitted with a plain tip. In four vertical egg white halves, pipe the deviled egg mixture evenly. 

Step 7331 Shot
Step 19

Place half of the olive in the center of the deviled egg mixture and place four olive legs on each side for the legs. 

Step 7332 Shot
Step 20

For the skull eggs, place the finely crushed corn chips in a flat bowl. Prepare a regular-sized straw and a small stir straw. Flip over a vertical egg white so the hollow portion is facing the board, with the pointed side facing downwards. Use the regular sized straw to poke out two holes for the eyes.

Step 7333 Shot
Step 21

Use the small stir straw to poke out two holes for the nose. The regular sized straw to poke out either one row of teeth or the small stir straw to poke out two rows of teeth. Repeat with the remaining three egg white halves. 

Step 7375 Shot
Step 22

Transfer one bowl’s worth of the deviled egg filling into a piping bag fitted with a plain tip. Flip over the skull and fill the hole until level with the deviled egg filling. 

Step 7334 Shot
Step 23

Dip the exposed deviled egg filling into the crushed corn chips to create a seal. 

Step 7335 Shot
Step 24

Marvel at your assortment of Halloween deviled eggs. Bon appetit!

  1. Champagne vinegar is a luxurious ingredient compared to plain white vinegar. However, white distilled or white wine vinegar can be used here, if desired.
  2. Canned black olives work best for this recipe.
