It’s spring and Easter is almost here. Today I’m trying another cute food presentation that I pinned years ago, Deviled Easter Chick Eggs. Use your favorite deviled egg recipe or mine below and decorate the little eggs to look like chicks. It’s not hard and look adorable for holiday get-togethers.
Start with week old eggs as fresh eggs are hard to shell. To prevent cracking, remove eggs from refrigeration about 30 minutes prior to boiling. Place eggs in cold water, bring to boil, turn off burner, and cover. Let sit for 15 minutes. Let cool, and refrigerate at least two hours before cutting for best results. Serve using an egg holder, a saucer, bowl, or a platter To use on a flat platter, with a sharp knife, slice off a very thin layer from the base of the egg to make it flat. You have the option to make feet but it’s not necessary. Then cut 1/3 of the egg off the top. I cut straight across but later you can make ragged edges if desired.
Deviled Easter Chick Eggs
Use organic when available, makes 12 Easter chicks
- 12 hard-boiled eggs peeled
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard
- Optional make w/o mustard
- 1 dill pickle finely diced
- 1 teaspoon pickle juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 carrot cut into rounds
- 12 slices of pickle or black olives
- Refrigerate your hard-boiled eggs for at least two hours or overnight
- With a sharp knife, slice off a very thin layer from the base of the egg if you’re using a platter
- Slice top 1/3 of eggs leaving a little yolk with the skin
- Use a spoon to remove bottom yolk to a bowl
- Mash yolks with a fork
- Add mayonnaise, pickle, pickle juice, mustard, salt, and pepper, and mix well
- Fill a piping bag or plastic bag with a corner snipped with the egg yolk mixture
- Pipe yolk mixture into bottom of egg whites to create chick
- Cut small wedge from carrot rounds to make a beak for each chick
- Cut pickle or olive slices into small squares to use for eyes
- Add 2 olive eyes to each chick
- Add egg white top to each chick
- Adjust so it looks like chick peeking out of egg
- Serve on deviled egg tray as centerpiece or in egg holders or platters
- Optional add a dab of deviled egg filling as glue to stick them to the platter.
- Optional make 3 cuts in carrot round for a foot, 2 per chick
- Optional decorate platter with herbs like parsley or dill

I might have to make these if we have the Baby Grands at Easter. They are just adorable!
These look fantastic, I have never ever eaten a devilled egg but often see recipes for them on Pinterest. They look really easy to make and I bet they taste delicious. #MMBC
You should try them. My family devours them quickly!
Oh my goodness, these are adorable! I have never eaten a devilled egg but they look like something I could make with the children that they will all enjoy. Have pinned for later #mmbc
thanks for the pin!
What a cute idea for Easter and my boys love savory eggs too X #mmbc
So cute! Thanks for the tips on boiling the eggs, too. Now that we live in the country we get fresh eggs from our son’s chickens and we have noticed how hard it is to peel them when we hard boil them!
It is easier with older eggs – a true fact – but I love your fresh eggs from your son’s chickens!
Aww! How cute are they! What a great idea. I don’t think I’ve tried devilled eggs before. x
These are soooo cute!

I’ve not had devilled eggs for years. I love the idea of making them into chicks for Easter time. Really fun idea. #MMBC
