To be fair, this wasn’t my original idea. I believe it was Duke’s Mayo that actually posted this idea first. I made these eggs about four years ago and am just now writing the post. I saw a black spiderweb deviled egg on Pinterest and thought those would be fun to make for our Halloween party.
Of course these were a hit as deviled eggs always are. They did leave a dark after-effect though, if you know what I mean ;).
Also, are you aware of the Teal Pumpkin Project? This project is where people put out a teal pumpkin on their front porch during Trick-or-Treat. This shows that they have allergen free options. This project means a lot to me because at points over the last ten years I’ve had foods I needed to avoid. It’s very hard to do anything fun when you have to avoid certain foods. Knowing that there is an allergen free option can be the difference between a kid enjoying Halloween and not enjoying Halloween.
