Deviled eggs are a great party snack, and you can make them Halloween-themed with the help of plain food coloring. These are dyed with blues and greens for extra eeriness, and the spiderweb pattern is sure to impress. What’s best, you’ll need less than 15 minutes of active prep time and around 2 hours extra to make these.

Tips & Tricks

  • Feel free to use any food color you like to make these eggs. Combine black with red to get a black widow theme or purples with green for a Frankenstein deviled egg.
  • If you are worried about using synthetic food dyes, there are plenty of natural alternatives out there. For example, you can soak the cracked eggs in beet juice or cooked red cabbage leaves.
  • These eggs are best consumed the day you made them since yolks tend to oxidize after a couple of days of sitting in the fridge.
