    secrets for the best deviled eggs - a classic Easter appetizer

    My mom was known for her deviled eggs, but since I only make things that I love, I’ve never shared them with you. According to Chris, friends and family, my mom and sister make the best deviled eggs and I deprive him of his beloved deviled eggs.

    So I invited my sister to make them for you today and share their recipe for deviled eggs. When she sent me the ingredients, I laughed. She’s very specific. I always thought I was the picky one!

    I assure you these are really easy deviled eggs, so easy, she even makes them by heart! I had her measure for you today and hope you enjoy them as much as our friends, family and neighbors do.

    Tips to make the best deviled eggs…

    First, you want to start with refrigerated ingredients.

    Boil older eggs so that they’re easy to peel.

    Use Miracle Whip, not mayonnaise. There’s a difference.

    Don’t just buy any pickles – use sweet gherkins for added crunch and finely chop. The smaller they are, the better.

    How to make chick Easter deviled eggs:

    • Cut hardboiled eggs in half on the round side for circles.
    • Use an ice cream or cookie scoop to scoop the filling into the egg.
    • Cut carrots into slices and then into thirds creating triangles for beaks. Insert the long end into the middle of the chick so that the beak points out.
    • Use olives or black gel icing to create eyes {I promise with just a touch you don’t taste it!}

    Enjoy these darling chick deviled eggs! They’re always a hit!
