Spider Deviled Eggs Recipe


Spider Deviled Eggs RecipeIt's that spooky time of year again, which means it's time for haunted Halloween treats! We love making spider recipes like Spider Brownies and Apple Pumpkin Buttered Toast with Olive Spiders. These tasty Spider Deviled Eggs feature gross green creepy crawlers! This is a great recipe to bring to your kid's classroom Halloween party  (it's a great healthy option before the candy rolls in) or just serve it to your kids as a snack. Try cooking with your kids and let them help prepare this holiday recipe.

makes 12 deviled eggs
prep time: 30 minutes


  • 1 dozen Early California, Pieiento Stuffed Manzanilla olives
  • 6 large hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons plain, non-fat yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika (plus more for garnish)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Use a very sharp paring knife to slice each olive in half, lengthwise. Remove the pimientos and set them aside. Cut half of the olive halves into thin slices, lengthwise (for the spider legs). Set everything aside. (Note: Kids should not help with this part; chiildren should never handle sharp utensils)

Step 2: Remove the shells from the hard-boiled eggs.

Step 3: Once the eggs have cooled completely, cut them in half, lengthwise.

Step 4: Remove the cooked yolks from the cut eggs and put them to a small mixing bowl. Add the yogurt, mayonnaise, paprika, and then season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix until this until it is ery smooth.

Step 5: Spoon the yolk mixture into a small zip lock bag and seal it. Then, use scissors to cut off one of the bottom corners of the bag. Make your cut about 1/4 inch from one of the bottom of the corner.  

Step 6: Have your kids help with this part: gently squeeze the yolk mixture from the bag into the holes into the cavity in each egg white half.  

Step 7: Have your kids help with this part, too: place one olive half, round side up, on each deviled egg. Then, add a small bit of the pimiento to the front, and four of the thin olive slices on each side as spider legs.

Step 8: Sprinkle lightly with paprika.
