One of my kids is still talking about the time a friend of ours did this at a gathering years ago! From Shari Blogs

    "Devil"ed Eggs

    Shila:  My kids love deviled eggs any day, but for a Halloween snack idea, try dressing these hard-boiled eggs up as... devils, of course! Garnish with "horns" and/or a "tail" cut from a red bell pepper. A dusting of red paprika adds a nice touch, too.
