Deviled Egg Chicks

Easter is THIS WEEKEND! I really can’t believe how quickly these holidays keep coming up AHH!

Growing up my family went all out for Easter. We would wake up to baskets from “The Easter Bunny” then all the kids in the neighborhood would gather for a huge Easter egg hunt.

These days Easter is more about mimosas and food.

I make these Deviled Egg Chicks for Easter every single year and they are always a hit.

They’re cute, festive, somewhat healthy and SO EASY!

I mean…they’re almost too cute to eat right?

To make these you can use whatever your favorite deviled egg recipe is. I used Skinnytaste’s recipe and subbed in horseradish dijon for regular dijon mustard.

So seriously, make these unique and make these your own.

One year I even filled the eggs with hummus instead of the yolks and they were really good!

    These are so adorable! I love deviled eggs so much. My mom makes my favorite ones and I get way too excited to have them haha. For Easter we usually have cooked ham as the main dish and other side dishes too. I’m headed home for the weekend and can’t wait:)

      We usually always do a ham as well…so good! This year I’m going to be with my boyfriend’s family so I’m excited to see some of their traditions! Hope you enjoy your time with your family 🙂

    These are adorable!!! Easter is my favourite holiday (maybe…on a par with Christmas actually!) So sad I can’t get Easter Eggs like the ones I get at home though 🙁 Good Friday we always used to have a big seafood barbeque with our friends because it was usually really hot back in Australia, going to miss that this year!

      Thank you! I’m all about healthy-ish appetizers to fill up on instead of 100 lbs of bread that I could easily eat haha.

    These are absolutely adorable!! I love deviled eggs so much that my aunt used to make them every year for Easter just for me 🙂 I’ve been going to Sean’s house for the past few years for Easter and we usually go to a park and play volleyball while his Grandpa cooks chicken teriyaki. We also have some macaroni or potato salad, spam masubi, and other park foods 🙂 My family growing up used to do Easter Sunday brunch with an egg and hashbrown casserole or Easter dinner with ham and the works.

      Ummm can I please come to Easter at Sean’s next year? That food sounds so much better than traditional Easter food! I’m spending Easter with Bryce’s family for the first time so I’m excited to see if they have any fun traditions! Enjoy your Easter 🙂
