Ingredients & Substitutions
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for Halloween themed deviled eggs, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- Eggs – The star of the show! Make my easy to peel hard boiled eggs or make them in the oven or in the air fryer.
- Mayonnaise – I prefer to use my homemade mayo (it takes just 5 minutes), but store-bought mayo is fine for saving time. You can also substitute Greek yogurt if you like.
- Dijon Mustard – Adds subtle spice and flavor. I used just a teaspoon, but feel free to increase that to a couple teaspoons if you like the flavor. You can also easily substitute regular yellow mustard, or even try different flavored mustards.
- Apple Cider Vinegar – Helps break down the egg yolk and gives the deviled eggs a little tang. You can also use distilled vinegar, or pickle relish if you like that flavor.
- Paprika – Adds a mild smoky flavor. If you prefer a stronger smoky taste, you can use smoked paprika instead.
- Garlic Powder – For more savory flavor.
- Sea Salt & Black Pepper
- Whole Black Olives – This is what I used to make my creepy spiders.
How To Make Halloween Deviled Eggs
This section shows how to make deviled eggs for Halloween, with step-by-step photos and details about the technique, to help you visualize it. For full instructions, including amounts and temperatures, see the recipe card below.
- Cook the eggs. Boil eggs like this in a medium pot or saucepan. Place in a bowl of ice water (or just very cold water) to cool, then crack and peel.
- Mix the filling. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise with a sharp knife. Remove the egg yolks and place in a small bowl. Add mayo, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, paprika, garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper to the bowl with the yolks. Stir or mash with a fork.
- Fill the egg white halves. Fill them with the deviled egg filling from the bowl.
TIP: There are a few options for filling the egg white halves.
I prefer to use a piping bag with frosting tip for a pretty presentation. If you don’t have one, you can also fill a regular zip-lock bag and snip off a corner, or just use a spoon if you’re in a hurry.
- Make spiders. Slice some of the olives in half lengthwise. Place one olive half on top of each of the filled eggs in the center, cut side down. Slice the remaining olives in half lengthwise, then slice each half into 4 strips. Place the strips on the Halloween deviled eggs to create spider legs.
Variations On Halloween Deviled Eggs
This is one of my fave Halloween recipes because it’s so easy and you can make it so many different ways! There are lots of options besides just “deviled spider eggs”. Try these other shapes:
- Creepy Eyeballs – Use sliced green olives with pimento centers to create spooky eyeballs on top of the deviled eggs. Sprinkle with paprika to give a red eye affect.
- Ghostly Shapes – To make Halloween deviled eggs that look like ghosts, cut small pieces of white cheese (such as mozzarella or white cheddar) into ghost shapes and place them on the deviled eggs.
- Spider Webs – Pipe a spider web design using sour cream or plain Greek yogurt onto the deviled eggs and place a small black olive spider in the center.
- Pumpkin Faces – Use orange bell pepper pieces to carve out pumpkin faces and place them on top of the deviled eggs.
- Store: You can store Halloween deviled eggs in the fridge for 2-3 days, but they are best eaten the same day.
- Meal prep: You can boil the eggs and make the filling up to a few days in advance. Wait to peel the eggs and fill eggs halves until right before serving.
