How to Make Albino Black Widow Spider Deviled Eggs

Typical Halloween Spider Deviled Eggs look something like this (above), with black or kalamata olives. Cute, but how about ... 

Here's how to do it:

1. Quickly make an albino black widow spider out of a hard-boiled egg, a pearl onion, capers, and a button mushroom, then cut an hourglass shape into a piece of paper and sprinkle paprika through it onto the spider's back. (~45 seconds.)

2. Cut it in half.

3. Mash up the yolks with whatever you normally like to make deviled eggs with. (Kimchee! Not pictured.)

4. Fill the spider.

5. Put her top back on.

6. Repeat 36 times, or for however many guests you're entertaining. No problem! Place around your house in unexpected spots.

Very cool, though I've been wondering what spider-shaped food has to do with 309 days of unanswered texts in the article bar up top.

Edith Zimmerman

@Probs Omg I thought that was just a glitch on my own computer!!! Ahhh, I'm sorry.

Amphora

@Edith Zimmerman I'm just relieved it turned out to be made of hard-boiled egg, cause it was puzzling me for days.

Probs

@Edith Zimmerman no worries!
@Amphora in the thumbnail I thought it was mushrooms!

I just made the loudest half-laugh, half-gag when I got to the picture that someone came into my office to make sure I was okay. That is genius and revolting and OMG.

Hot Doom

@Titania Right!? I love this! I had the actual 8-O face. Color me agog.

Choire Sicha@facebook

@Titania ME TOO, OH GOD, I'm horrified/hilarified.

Bittersweet

@Choire Sicha@facebook Uh-huh. My first thought was, very clever, but I'm not eating that no way nohow.

DO A SKELETON NEXT

@Edith Zimmerman EDITH SPOOKINGTON!!!

Edith Zimmerman

@deepomega Haha, sorry, I deleted what I said!

deepomega

@Edith Zimmerman Why would you do that, it was perfect and now nobody else knows. EVERYONE Edith posted the best skeleton I've ever seen and now it's gone.

BornSecular

@deepomega Thumbs down! I wanted to see it!

cherrispryte

The leggies seem like some complicated knifework! Or maybe I am a klutz.

Tulletilsynet

@cherrispryte It's cheating if Edith used actual albino black widow spider legs.

cherrispryte

@Tulletilsynet Black widow spiders aren't nearly that big, right? RIGHT?!

area@twitter

@cherrispryte So the legs are mushroom slices from the button mushroom, right? So you can probably do something with cutting a single slice and then cutting that slice into matchsticks. Which is still complicated, I guess, so...eh.

wharrgarbl

@cherrispryte If it's any consolation, they get really, really slow when they're that big. I think it's because they can usually bite you after you pass out from seeing them.

Myrtle

@cherrispryte I thought the same thing. Plus, I want to pick it up and put it in my mouth with legs dangling.
Also, don't let us neglect the vegans... so what about a version with the spider made from two button mushroom tops, filled with- hummus? And legs made from bean sprouts, and the head is a cocktail onion.
I'm leaning towards capers for spider eggs.
Also, there are no vegan zombies, people, so look sharp and cover your braiiiins.

charmcity

oh God how do you eat it WHAT DISEMBODIED PARTS DO YOU LEAVE BEHIND

aeroaeroaero

I love these! But I am confused as to why you add the paprika hourglass first -- how did you keep it from falling off when you cut the egg and removed the yolk?

Edith Zimmerman

@aeroaeroaero It wasn't thought through very well.

mezzanine

@Edith Zimmerman you love deviled eggs! everyone, let's all save up and buy edith this! (such beady little eyes!)

Megasus

NOPE

trappedinabay

@Megano! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

highfivesforall

I HATE this but I LOVE it. I'm guessing at some point during the preparation of this you transition between "this is going to be delicious" and "ahhhhh oh no it's a spider I can't eat this", and I kind of want to find out when that happens.

CrescentMelissa

I am having a small low key gathering for my little ones friends. Imagine their tiny screams at the idea of not the spiders, but the EGGS. I can see my daughter totally rinsing me over these.

lisma

Oh this bums me out. :(

I think this a topical, but less scary option.

Brunhilde

@lisma So Martha just covers her deviled eggs with tarantula eggs to make them spooky?

TheLetterL

@Brunhilde Worse. She lays them herself.

VerityStandingStill

@TheLetterL
That had me shaking trying not to snort on the bus.

faustbanana

Yess! I have missed Edith's food sculptures! What's next for the holidays? Beet Pilgrim? Cherry tomato Santa?

Is It a Hat?

My Brain/Stomach doesn't know what to make of this. (As opposed to my Heart/Vagina which is completely horrified.

KeLynn

@Is It a Hat? Wait wait wait, what do spiders have to do with vaginas? AHHHHH do I even want to know?

Ophelia

@KeLynn spiders:vaginas::centipedes:jacuzzis

OHGODWHYDIDIEVENGOTHERE?

Is It a Hat?

@KeLynn OH GOD NO....don't worry, nothing to do with vaginas! When I wrote out Brain/Stomach it reminded me of the Heart/Vagina term used here on the Hairpin sometimes. Deep breath, and unclench!

Is It a Hat?

@Ophelia I'm stifling laughter SO HARD at my desk right now.

KeLynn

@Is It a Hat? OHHHH OK, I was trying to draw parallels and didn't even recognize it.

@Ophelia oh god, that's exactly the sort of mental image I was afraid of. Brb, back to purchase a steel swimsuit that nothing will ever penetrate again.

dinos

I LOVE THIS. I'm just sitting here at my desk saying ohmygod over and over. I bet if you soaked the eggs in soy sauce overnight, they'd be a nice spider-brown color. I am absolutely making these on Halloween.

Ophelia

@dinos I feel like you could make the yolks into some spidery colors with the right spices, too.

dinos

@Ophelia ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod
Weekend PLANNED.

Ophelia

@dinos Thinking about this, though, I'm not 100% sure I want to know what color the inside of a black widow spider is.

area@twitter

Edith, thank you for making spidery deviled eggs that do not involve olives. (eeeew olives eeeeewwww)

redheaded&crazy

oh man. these are AMAZING! I can only dream of seeing similar creativity and deliciousness on display in June

MoonBat

@redheaded&crazie Nicely done!

Megasus

@redheaded&crazie You just got an A++ in segue-ing!

joie

@redheaded&crazie I love you. That was the best segue ever.

SomeGayGuy

HOLY FUCK. This just reminded me of that one time in highschool I left my backpack face down on the carpet of the living room for ONE NIGHT ONLY and the next morning as I flip it over, there was a GIGANTIC black widow who was in the process of making a nest over the zipper WHERE MY HAND WAS GOING AND FOR SOME REASON KEPT GOING EVEN AFTER I SAW THE FUCKING THING. Total deer-in-headlights moment. (Saved by Dad's darting hand over my shoulder to crush the thing with his HANDS. Ok, so he also had a napkin, but he squished it himself rather than with some other implement of crushy crushiness.)

Myrtle

45 seconds, including cutting out the hourglass stencil? Obvs you're not familiar with my scissor work.

David Cho

This is fucking weird!!!!!

I appreciate all you have done for myself and my family. My name is harry and after contacting so many fake spell casters that only played with my heart you´d got what I wanted: my family back. Your sincere kindness and thoughtfulness inspires me. You have touched my heart deeply and I will forever be grateful that you got rid of all the negative influences that surrounded my wife and I. Now we are back and my son is very happy again, with his parents together... Thanks ANTOGAI antogaispelltemple@yahoo.com all my gratefulness

"I never believed in spell casting or Magic. I felt silly even looking at spell sites online. I have been in tears over the loss of my job of 4 years and my husband of 2. I lost both in the SAME MONTH. I found you guys surfing late one night and I have no idea why I searched "spells" but I did. I ordered a love spell and got a free wealth and prosperity spell with it. One week went by and I thought...There wasn't any hope for my spells. The next Tuesday I went to bingo (alone) and hit a $3,700 pot. The week after that an old college boyfriend called and we have been seeing each other since. The $24.95 I spent on my spells came back to me with (extreme interest). Thanksto voodoo.u can contact him @ his private mail, VOODOOSPIRITUALTEMPLE@YAHOOMAIL.COM
