Creepy Ghost Hard Boiled Eggs Snacks For Halloween
I wasn’t kidding when I said these ghost hard boiled eggs are easy. If you can boil an egg, you can absolutely make these fun ghosts for Halloween, or just to nestle into a spooky lunchbox. The first time I made these it took me a bit longer, but that was because my eggs were runny. Turns out when you forget how longs the eggs have been in the water, they aren’t always cooked and they can make a big gloppy mess on your cutting board. Make sure you cook your eggs for a minimum off twelve minutes and you will be smooth sailing! 😉
Another thing that can make these eggs go even faster is to have an easy to peel shell. Here are a couple things I do to make things easier.
- Use older eggs. Eggs that have been in the fridge for at least a week peel easier!
- Adding a little salt to the water keeps the eggs from cracking in the water as easily as they cook.
- Try adding a little vinegar to the boiling water, it also makes the egg shells easier to peel.
Once your eggs are boiled all you need is a straw, a sharp knife and a carrot to make some spooky eyes. Because glowing eyes are part of the fun for this ghost. I’ve also made a quick video!
Creepy Ghost Hard Boiled Eggs For Halloween
- 1 Hard Boiled Egg
- 1 Carrot
- 1 Plastic Drinking Straw
Peel hardboiled egg.
Slice bottom off egg so egg will stand on end
Use the plastic drinking straw to poke holes in the egg for ghost eyes and mouth.
Slice a tiny piece off of your carrot. Slice it smaller until you have two pieces that are smaller than the holes.
Pop tiny pieces of carrots into eye holes.
- To make peeling your eggs easier, add a little vinegar to the water. To make your hard boiled eggs less likely to crack while boiling, add a little salt to the water.
- When making the holes, push straw all the way in through the white section to the yolk. Squeeze egg out of straw between making each hole.
- Carrot bits could easily be substituted with bell pepper for other colors of eyes.
