Wow, these were such a FANTASTIC addition to our Halloween-themed game night yesterday evening! I chose to follow the deviled egg recipe below (simple-perfect!), and just added a sprinkle of paprika on top before arranging the olives. Since I had half a can of sliced olives left over from another recipe, I used those to complete the 'spiders' and it worked out great! Delicious, adorable (in a giggly, pretending to be grossed out way), and very fun! We'll no doubt be adding this to the menu of every Halloween occasion we have/attend in the future! Too cute! Thank you so much for posting this! **Update-We loved this recipe so much, we're now adapting it into Xmas Tree Eggs for the winter holidays! This time, we're going to use chopped green olives to shape the trees! :) Thanks again!
