    Serves: 24 

    • 12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved

    • 1 teaspoon red food colouring, or as needed
    • 1 teaspoon blue food colouring, or as needed
    • 1 teaspoon black food colouring, or as needed

    Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Place each egg, cut-side down, into a paper muffin case.
    2. Spoon mayonnaise into a plastic resealable bag; snip 1 of the bottom corners of the bag. Pipe mayonnaise through the opening around the base of each egg half.
    3. Portion red food colouring into a small bowl, blue food colouring into a second small bowl and black food colouring into a third small bowl. Dip a clean and sterile small-tip paintbrush into the red food colouring and paint small lines onto each egg to represent 'veins', making sure to get a little of the red food colouring into the mayonnaise.
    4. Rinse brush and make a blue circle on the top middle of each egg to represent the 'iris'. Rinse brush and paint a black ring around the iris and put a dot of black in the middle of the iris for the 'pupil'.

    How cool are these. Thank you frady. I made these for a party. The only difference is that I made the filling with sriracha sauce, Dijon and mayonnaise. This made the filling orange. You can make black food coloring by mixing equal parts red, blue and yellow. The pumpkin in the middle is made of Boisin cheese. Form two pkgs of boisin into a ball. Add the face (made out of pepperoni) and roll it in finely shredded cheddar. The stem is made out of the top of a red pepper and the horns are thai chillies.  -  01 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
