Who doesn’t love deviled eggs? The fun thing about deviled eggs is that you can really play around and experiment with different variations on the theme without messing them up too badly. A little mayo, a little mustard, something crunchy for texture, a bit of spice… and voila!

So I was trying to come up with a creative Halloween-appropriate finger food for a mini get-together I was having prior to Halloween barhopping on the LES. I thought why not dress up deviled eggs as little devils?

I decided to use some red food dye for color, a mix of hoisin sauce and sriracha to draw on the faces, and cut and dyed little carrot pieces for the horns (celery would also work). I’d do a couple things differently the next time around, though. For one, I wouldn’t bother to dye the outside of the egg whites – dying the yolk creates enough red for the face, you actually can’t really see the outsides anyway, and it dyes everyone’s fingers red. I’ve omitted the step in my directions below. Secondly, I’d use celery for the horns instead and chop a little bit of it for the yolk mixture to get a bit of crunch and to get that celery taste. If you’re not a celery fan, a tablespoon of finely sliced green onion would probably also do just as well in the yolk mixture and you can use carrots for horns.
