Spiderweb Eggs - Halloween Fun

I think Halloween is my favorite holiday.  I think working with kids all these years kept me keeping up with Halloween Fun.  Decorate your table Arachnophobia style with simple spider web and shrouds from the Dollar Store!

These are such fun to make!  The kids will get a kick out of seeing the "spiderwebs" appear like magic when you peel the eggs!

You will need:

Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with water.  Add food coloring to obtain a black color.  Bring eggs to a boil, remove from heat.  Cover and let set for 10 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs one at a time and place in a folded paper towel.  Lightly crack egg on one side with the handle of a wooden spoon.  Just hit the egg once in the middle of one side.

Transfer the eggs to a medium bowl and cover with the "black" cooking water.  Let eggs cool completely in the cooking water in the refrigerator.

Carefully peel shells from eggs.  Watch the web appear!  Serve with salt and pepper and red beets if desired.

For Spider Deviled eggs, cut black olives in half.
Use one half for the body and slice the remainder for the legs.
