I made these for my Halloween Bunko night. My sister made them for her Halloween party and she took the photo.

How to Make Deviled "Spider" Eggs


  1. In a large pot, arrange the eggs in a single layer and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then cover and remove from the heat; let stand for 10 minutes. Drain, then cover the eggs with ice water. Let stand until cool to the touch.
  2. Peel the eggs, halve lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a medium bowl, reserving the egg whites. Mash the yolks with the mayonnaise, mustard and cayenne; season with salt and black pepper. Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg white halves and dust with paprika.
  3. Slice black olives in half place one slice on top of egg, make slices out of the other half and poke into the egg to make the spider legs.
