It may seem unreal, but Halloween is fast approaching. Whether you’re hosting a party for kids or adults or you want to bring a spooky treat to a Halloween gathering, you’ll need something that’s equal parts festive to present and easy to make. Look no further for your go-to Halloween treat than these adorable deviled eggs! This recipe combines all the ease and flavor of this favorite appetizer with some fantastic Halloween touches, leaving you with a downright devilish finger food.
And, best of all, this treat takes minimal effort to make – even if they come out looking like they cost you an arm and leg. (Now THAT’S a scary thought.)
We definitely encourage some creative liberties with this fun finger food. While this video shows us a traditional orange and black version, you are welcome to dye the whites and yolks any color you want. Maybe a green and purple or a red and black color combo seems spookier to you.
Finally, be careful with the dye throughout this recipe! Especially if you decide to go with black. This dye will get on your hands and stain your skin for days, or even weeks. Make sure you wear gloves, not-nice clothing, and you keep the dye away from any areas or surfaces you would hate to get stained. Once the whites have drained in the fridge for two hours, however, the dye will have dried up, leaving the eggs safe to handle.

Halloween Deviled Eggs
- Before you get started, you’ll want to prepare your eggs to be deviled. Peel the shells before you begin.
- In a small bowl, combine your water, vinegar, and black food coloring. Place off to the side.
- Cut all your eggs in half. Pop out the yolks and put them off to the side for now. Rinse out the whites to make sure all the remnants of the yolk is gone.
- Put your egg white halves into the dye and let them soak for about five minutes.
- After five minutes, use tongs to remove the egg whites. Place them on a thick stack of paper towels to drain and dry. Don’t hold back on the paper towels!
- Once drained and beginning to dry, place the blackened egg whites into the fridge for two hours.
- In a separate bowl, combine your mayo and your orange food coloring. Stir those together to combine the colors. Mash up your egg yolks into the orange mayo until smooth. Add mustard for flavor, if desired.
- Put your egg yolk mixture into a frosting bag, with whatever fun piping tip you’d like on the front. Pipe the orange yolk mixture into each black egg to serve.
