How to Make Snowman Deviled Eggs

1. Slice the top and bottom off one hard-boiled egg, horizontally, and the top and bottom off another, vertically, if that makes sense. 

2. Stack one on top of the other (feel free to use toothpicks to anchor, although I would NEVER), mash up the yolks with whatever deviled egg mixers you like (here I've got mayo, mustard, and sriracha), and spoon the mixture into the roundest of the sliced-off ends. (Also cut/scoop a little trough into it if it doesn't have one.)

3. Stack it ... (Also, here you're seeing bits of three eggs — trial and error.)

4. Give it some caper eyes, and a little cranium ...

5. And celery arms (or whatever — carrot greens or tarragon on the stem could work, too), a carrot nose (boring! I know), a little sriracha button-down ...

6. And a jaunty prosciutto scarf! (Or: ham, roasted red pepper, pickled ginger?)

7. And a hat, if you want, although there must have been some magic in this old pickle hat I found, because when I placed it on his head ...

8. Heee laaay downnn.

This is adorable as an end result, but at step 3-4 I was dyinggggg because it looked like scrambled brains a la Krendler's cortex in Silence of the Lambs.

next we feed the brains to an unwitting child for lunch on a plane


(sorry that was a gruesome first comment on a snack article)


I really love the prosciutto scarf!!!


@PatatasBravas Hahaha...you can try, but you will never achieve the brilliance of an @redheaded&crazie wallpost monologue. (No one can.)

(Hee! Just kidding...I love you, Brave Potatoes.)


@wee_ramekin Haha no I am not worthy of a RH&C monologue! I just really didn't want my first comment to be the only comment on the article. I wanted to end it on a happier note!

(I really don't want to get hit by a bus in twelve minutes and have my last words on the Pin be, in effect, "Edith your adorable deviled egg creations are actually zombie-tastic.")

almighty jugs

@PatatasBravas THANK YOU. Step 3 was fucking terrifying to me for some reason


@wee_ramekin *blush*

@laurel I would buy that for my boyfriend. I would buy several.


@laurel deviled easter bunny, with... with... um... ears made of sesame snacks?

A deviled egg in an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka dot bikini?

A deviled egg with a fishing pole made from pretzel stick and celery string?

@laurel I always thought it unfair that deviled eggs were relegated to a summer-only food. THIS MAKES ME HAPPY

Miranda Everitt

I hate deviled eggs so much but this is so adorable. FEELING TORN.

every tomorrow@twitter

@Miranda Everitt I hate eggs and it scared me. Not torn, fleeing.


I keep coming back to that prosciutto scarf. Am imagining myself eating my way out of a prosciutto scarf. DREAM LIFE.


@klaus yeah, i need a prosciutto scarf!


He looks like Gates from the Legion of Super-Heroes.


this is everything I have ever dreamed of


I totally support Edith's foray into seasonal deviled egg sculpture art!


@rimy I KNOW. This absolutely needs to be a wall calendar for my desk.

Reginal T. Squirge

How much to get a devilled egg in one's own likeness? Asking for a friend.


@Reginal T. Squirge Wouldn't you rather have a deviled egg in Regina Spektor's likeness?

Reginal T. Squirge

My kingdom for a deviled egg me holding hands with a deviled egg Regina.

Edith Zimmerman

@Reginal T. Squirge Tell me more about this kingdom

Reginal T. Squirge

I can offer you a half-eaten bag of pita chips and all the egg puns your heart desires.


This has made my terrible slog of a day SO MUCH BETTER.


Aaah it's the albumenible snowman!

OK, that was awful. And this is adorable! I'll just see myself out...


@ru_ri No, stay! I'll egg you on!


@ru_ri Guys these yolks are terrible!


@erindubitably Oh all white. I'll stop.


@wee_ramekin I was scrambling to come up with a pun about making yolks, but erindubitably got there first!


@PistolPackinMama (sorry, I fried, though)


@PistolPackinMama Aw man, now you've got me all scrambled...

ETA: I see that you already used "scrambled". Welp, you've beaten me.

@PistolPackinMama This thread is great any way you slice it.


@wee_ramekin Way to poach jokes from other commenters.


@Brunhilde I am having a hard time coming up with a good re-torta.

fondue with cheddar

@PistolPackinMama Egg puns aren't all they're cracked up to be.


@fondue with cheddar You are such a hard-boiled cynic.

fondue with cheddar

@PistolPackinMama You know, you've really Benedict-to-me lately. Why are you so mean?


@fondue with cheddar Sorry to meringue you. I've been in a mood lately.

fondue with cheddar

@PistolPackinMama No hard feelings, I've been pretty beat today myself.


@fondue with cheddar I'm glad you two have made up. Now the rest of us don't have to sulfur any more.


@wee_ramekin Oh Die Auflaufformchen! I cannot bear to be separated from Fondue with Cheddar! What would I do if our friendship was irrevocably broken?


@PistolPackinMama Awwww. That sweet sentiment has me on the sunny-side up of the street :).


@fondue with cheddar Hopefully someone will be able to souffle you down and bring you tea and crumpets while you relax.


@PistolPackinMama Man, I hope I can relax over the hollendaise, otherwise, it'll be a devilled of a time.


@ru_ri why don't you guys all quiche and make up? (ducks, runs)


@dabbyfanny **struggles to make joke about your mom being over easy, fails**

fondue with cheddar

@PistolPackinMama Hey, you speak German? Because I want to respond with a German pun, but I fear I might make a mistake and provoke your Eier.<\i>


You had me at "jaunty prosciutto scarf."

Is It a Hat?

Well this is the cutest damn thing ever.


I want a pickle hat. I could lie down all day in a pickle hat.


I ate a hard boiled egg today and WHAT A WASTE WHEN COULD HAVE MADE IT INTO A LITTE MAN


I went to a holiday party this weekend where the filling had some mothafuckin TRUFFLE OIL in it. That was next-level devilin'!!!

Tami Twarog@twitter

Can we hook him up with marshmallow Ron Swanson?

Arianna Rebolini

if you had asked me earlier if there was a way to make a devilled egg better than it already was (the best) I would have said no but I would have been SO WRONG.
