Bubble, Bubble, Toil, and Trouble! These Halloween Themed Deviled Eggs are going to be the hit of your next Halloween Party.
I mean who doesn’t love deviled eggs and ones with a fun Halloween twist, yes, please!
These monster-eyed ones are just the spooky treat your kids will go nuts over and they will love helping you prep them too.
It’s no tricks for the host though because these are so easy and fast to put together. They can be made ahead of time if needed and require only a handful of ingredients.
How to make Halloween themed deviled eggs look like monster eyes!
Slice the peppers into long, thin slices and the olives into thin circles. Set both aside.
Place your eggs into a large pot and fill with cool water, covering eggs about ½ inch.
Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Cover, turn off the heat, and let sit for 10 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the pot and place them in a bowl in the sink and let cool water run over them for about a minute then let them sit in the bowl.
Once cool enough to handle (they don’t have to be completely cooled).
Use the handle of a dull butter knife to crack all around the shell of each egg. Do NOT remove the shell we are doing this step to create the veining.
If you are allowing children to help with these Halloween deviled eggs make sure an adult is attending and always use caution with boiling water and handling the warm eggs.
Re-heat the water used to boil the egg until it begins to steam (not boil). Add the water to a large bowl.
Scoop out some black food coloring gel with the knife and mix it around. (Used about 3 scoops of the size shown below in the picture.)
Use gloves during the dying and filling process or you might have pretty purple hands.
Mix and swirl the gel around into the water to dissolve and color the water.
Place the eggs into the dyed water and let sit for 20 minutes.
(If the water isn’t covering some of the eggs, just go back and move around to get all sides.)
Take the eggs out of the dye and run them under cool water to remove the remaining dye.
Carefully remove the shell and place de-shelled eggs to the side.
Cut each egg lengthwise, placing the egg yolks into a medium bowl.
In the bowl with the yolks, add mayo, mustard, garlic, pepper, and salt.
Use the back of a fork to mash the yolks and mix to combine. Use a hand mixer or emersion blender to make a smoother mixture.
Use a knife to scoop a little bit of violet food coloring and dip it into the yolk mixture and mix until completely combined.
This is optional but makes it a little easier to get the yolk nicely into the deviled eggs, place it into a ziplock bag, and cut off one end to use as a piping bag.
Fill each egg halves, where you removed the yolk, with the egg yolk mixture.
Decorate with an olive slice and peppers to make the center of the eye and some monster eye veining.
This last step is optional but of course, you still want these Halloween themed deviled eggs to taste delicious. I can’t have deviled eggs without a little paprika.
How long can you store deviled eggs before they go bad?
They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days, however, for best taste and appearance it is recommended they be consumed within 24 hours. Make sure they’re covered tightly with plastic wrap.
