Halloween is creeping closer and my house has zero decorations up. Zero. I have asked my husband several times to bring down the huge boxes of decorations we have acquired since having the kids, but we just haven’t had the time. My neighbors are more on top of things than I, with skeletons, pumpkins and spider webs popping up in their yards. The block party is planned and Halloween will come whether we are ready or not!

My house may not be ready for Halloween, but my Halloween menu certainly is. Last week I featured my Toxic Sludge/Kiwano Margarita. This week, I’m keeping with my freaky green color scheme.

I have to admit, I have never made deviled eggs. I personally can’t stand them. They are usually oozing with way too much mayonnaise and the ooey gooey texture makes me nauseous.

So when Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs™ asked for a spooky deviled egg recipe, I was stumped.

Luckily, I had an avocado on the counter from my friend Mimi Avocado. Lightbulb! I would swap out the mayo and add avocado instead. That combined with the kick of wasabi and I quickly became excited about deviled eggs again!

But what should I do to make my Avocado and Wasabi Deviled Eggs more spooky? I found this great spider web effect and knew I had to try it! I admit that I added a little food coloring to the mix since I did not have enough blueberries in the freezer. But, it is an easy dye-free effect to use.

I piped the green egg filling using the infamous grass piping tip (#233) for another touch of creepy. Topped with charcoal salt and black sesame seeds and my mayhem was done.

  7. This is so spooky!! Amazing creativity, Laura 🙂

  8. Very creative! And beautiful in a spooky kind of way.

    These were too fabulous looking to not try. Only problem was that I made them the night before and the lines on the eggs got all blurry and were not nearly as cool looking as when first made. Next time I will make them right before serving.

    • I had one batch soaking for 6 hours and one batch for 2 hours and they turned out great. You also want to gently crack the eggs. If the cracks are big and deep, then more dye will get soaked in. I had some eggs with blobs of dye as that happened to me. Thank you for trying it out!

    How did you make the eggs look marbled?

    • If you click on the recipe, you will find the full directions. But basically, you boil the eggs first. Then you crack them with a spoon, leave the shells on, and let the cracked eggs sit in a dye bath made with blueberries or food coloring.
