Cute Deviled Egg Chicks

My father sent me a link on FB many years ago with this idea (Please forgive me for not knowing the original source). Deviled Egg Chicks have been a part of our Easter table ever since. These little guys are super easy and cute. I must admit I never knew what a caper was until I started making these guys. LOL

This recipe is to make 6 chicks. Adjust it according to serving size and taste. You can use any deviled egg recipe you like, I'm using my grandmother's recipe.

  • 6 Eggs (The Larger the easier they are to make)
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Mustard
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 Cup Relish
  • Matchstick Carrots
  • Capers

Hard Boil the eggs

Cool and peel all the eggs

Slice the eggs across the yoke. (See photo above). and cut off a small part of the bottom so the eggs can 'stand upright'

Remove all the yokes. In a bowl mix yokes, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and relish.

Put mixture in a ziplock bag and snip off the corner.

Pipe the yoke mixture back into the large side of the egg; over fill it! The more egg mixture in the egg the bigger your chick will be.

Replace the tops, tilting them towards the back so as to make a large area for your chick's face.

Add capers as eyes...

and a matchstick carrot for the beak. You may have to shorten the carrot.

Chill until you're ready to serve and enjoy!

I have always found it best to boil a few more eggs than you need. You inevitably end up with a few that just aren't shaped right. Out of the 6 eggs I boiled, 4 ended up perfect. The other two were yummy, just not pretty.

What do you like to put in your deviled eggs?

Like this idea? Pin it!!


  1. I saw these on Pinterest. I'm going to make them for our Easter get together. I think they are adorable!

  2. I'm pinning this! I can't wait to make them for Easter!

  3. Those are adorable. I was wondering what you used for the eyes until you said they were capers.

    1. I think the capers look cuter than full size olives, but personally: I do take the capers off before I eat them... Just not my favorite flavor ;) My husband loves them though.

  4. Oh, my gosh, I absolutely LOVE these! I can't believe that it's never occurred to me to do this! Definitely trying them this week with the mounds of hard-boiled (and dyed) eggs that we'll have. So cute!

    Stopping by from the SITS Sharefest, btw. :)

    1. I've seen them made with the whites dyed to look like the chicks are hatching from colored eggs. ;)

  5. Oh my goodness! That is too cute! Thanks for sharing this because I honestly, can't wait to try it myself :-)

    Love and Luck,

  8. These are super cute! My daughter has been wanting to make some and this looks like she might enjoy this one. Stopping over from SITS.

    1. This is a fun project with the kids if you like to cook with them! Enjoy!

  9. That is ridiculously cute!!! I think I might try this. Or at least I'll tell my husband to try it since he always makes the deviled eggs.

    Visiting from SITS Sharefest!

    1. My father helped me make them the first year I made these. ;)
