[25 before 25] Pinterest Recipe No. 4: Easter Edition

My small group at church rotates bringing snacks. When we had sign-ups a couple months ago, I [strategically] chose the Wednesday before Easter, so I would be able to test some of my Easter Pinterest findings on my Holiday board.
Unfortunately, the morning of the event, I realized one the pins I had pinned did not have a proper link. But I was not swayed. I just had to make it up as I went along.
This idea for Peeps comes from
Leigh Anne at Your Homebased Mom

I found these devilled eggs on pinterest. Unfortunately,
the link sent me to some obscure place where I could not find the recipe.

My bevilled/devilled eggs--easter style. I think they are adorable.

To create the color on the devilled eggs:

  1. Hard boil the eggs.
  2. Let them cool.
  3. Peel them.
  4. Slice in half.
  5. Take out yolk, and put in reserve bowl.
  6. Fill three [dark in color] mugs with water.
  7. Add 5-10 drops of food coloring into each mug.
  8. Place egg halves into the various colored water. [Make sure they are fully submerged.]
  9. Leave for 20-30 minutes, depending on how dark you want the color.
  10. Make yolk mix however you like it. [I add mustard, mayo, salt, pepper, and paprika until it reaches the desired texture and taste.]
  11. Arrange [formerly known as] whites on a plate/platter.
  12. Fill eggs with yolk mixture. [I used a ziplock baggie with one corner sliced off, resulting in a makeshift piping bag.]
  13. Enjoy.
I thought both the eggs and the peeps were delicious. However, I learned that people either love devilled eggs or hate them. People feel the same way about peeps. I love both! 

Go check out my Pinterest food board, and let me know what recipe you think I should try next for my 25 before 25 challenge!


  1. I love bevilled/devilled eggs. Peeps not so much. But both of yours are very pretty!

    1. Thanks, mom! I want to try a peep on a smore!

  2. Wow, these are beautiful! really well done :) I love the Easter spirit you have:)

    1. Thanks, Kasia! They turned out even better than I expected! Happy almost Easter!

  3. Oh my days these look so gorgeous and cute :D So Eastery :) I don't have a clue what a peep is though and yet to try devilled eggs but this totally inspires me :D

    1. A peep is just a marshmallow (usually in the shape of a little chick or bunny) that is covered in colored sugar! I love them! And devilled eggs are really easy to make! You should try them! :)
