Halloween Spider Decoration for Deviled Eggs

Many stores started moving their Halloween products to prime spots in preparation to the holiday.

It seems a bit early to me, but hey, at least these are not Thanksgiving turkeys or Christmas decorations yet (even though some shops are probably thinking about dusting off some of these too).

So I decided to get on this train as well, and this week post will be not really a recipe (even though it has something to do with food), but rather a food decoration how-to.

This is a first one for me, so I hope you like it. Any kind of deviled eggs will look good with these spiders on, however choose these which also taste good with olives you are going to use.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients:

  2. One olive will make one spider (and a bit of leftover pieces which you can just eat afterwards). So take one olive and slice it in half lengthwise:

  3. Leave one half aside (it will be used for a “spider body”) and slice second one in half lengthwise one more time:

  4. Now turn olive quarters perpendicular to your knife and slice them into thin stripes (eight of these will make “spider legs”):
