    If the question is what should you bring to the office or the party for Halloween, the answer is Halloween Deviled Spider Eggs!

    Deviled eggs always disappear first from the appetizer plate, and this decorated version just makes people laugh. Or else it gives them a creepy shiver, which is also worth a chuckle.

    Amusement with your food is always a good thing.

    You could pile a bunch of extra olives in the center of the plate

    Directions are simple

    1. Make your favorite deviled eggs. Here’s a quick tutorial on the easiest, best way to hard cook an egg.
    2. Decorate with olives to resemble spiders!
    3. Voila!

    A green plate is also a nice contrast color

    A couple of hints on how to do the spiders

    1. You will need 1 whole pitted black olive per egg. You can use a regular (boring) black olive, or a more interesting Kalamata olive.  Buy them pitted, because if you try to pit them yourself, you will mangle the olive, and for this recipe, you need pretty darn nice looking olives. (Second thought: Use the regular olives for a kid platter, and Kalamata olives for an adult platter. Everyone’s happy.)

    2. Cut the olive in half lengthwise. Place half on the egg as the spider body.
     

    3. Cut the remaining half into 2 vertical pieces. Cut each piece into 4 vertical slices, so you will have 8 legs. Spiders have 8 legs. If you cut each piece into 3 pieces instead of 4, you will have  a 6-legged insect, but it won’t be an arachnid. So cut 8 legs and quit arguing with me.

    4. Poke legs into the egg filling to adhere them. You don’t want any legs falling off (see #3 above).

    5. Voila! Spider Eggs are served!
     

    6. Stand around smugly as everyone murmers about how clever you are.
