Most people are familiar with recipes for deviled eggs. Not my husband, however. When he saw this recipe he asked me if anyone has actually eaten a deviled egg since 1955. Maybe he has a point. Deviled eggs can seem about as boring as cocktail weenies. But these deviled egg chicks hopefully blow the cobwebs off the traditional version. They are inexpensive and easy to make. You can actually spend LESS than $4 and make DOUBLE the amount in this recipe!
Not only are these chicks delicious, but the end product is so cute. Kids can get in on the fun by helping you mash the egg yolk mixture, piping it into the egg white "bodies" and putting the "eyes" and "beaks" on the chicks.
If you want to really have fun with the devil theme, it's fun to put 2 red pepper triangles on top of the egg whites -- so you have real little devils! I definitely know who the little devil is in our house....and that would be Kenya! So this recipe is in honor of all the little devils that are really the angels of our lives!
