These healthy Halloween snacks are made with hard-boiled eggs and olives. We are going to prepare the egg yolks with some mustard, mayo and capers and then form the spiders. If you would like to make these spicy go ahead and add ground red chili to the yolks.
These spider eggs are healthier than candy and are very fun to make with the kids. Click on this link if you want to learn how to boil eggs correctly. Your egg yolks should be yellow and not have a greenish or gray hue on them.
Keep these eggs refrigerated until you are ready to serve them.
This is what you need to do for these horrifically delicious treats:
Makes 12 spiders
6 hard-boiled eggs – halved
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. mayonnaise (or more is you would like)
1 tsp. chopped capers
Salt and Pepper
12 pitted, ripe olives
Carefully remove the yolks from the hard-boiled eggs into a bowl. Add the mustard, mayonnaise, capers, salt and pepper and mix well. Fill the egg whites with the prepared egg yolks.
Half the olives and keep one of the halves intact. Slice the other half into six parts.
Place half of the olive on top of the egg yolk and three legs on each side of it.
Keep refrigerated in a closed container.
Note –you can also make some bloody eyes by placing a half olive in the middle of the yolk and painting some red veins with ketchup.
