So, I realize I just posted a Deviled Egg recipe 9 days ago, but this recipe was too cute not to try. Plus I got to eat some more of those fan-tab-u-lous Horseradish eggs, so I really didn't mind ;)
Word of advice here...I bought a can of large black olives. I believe they were just a wee bit too big. The spiders were supposed to have 8 legs...4 on each side...but that was just 'spider-leg overload', so I gave my creepy crawlers only 6 legs. They'll get over it.
If you use the medium olives, I think it'll be much easier decorate, and the olives won't be so overpowering. Or small...I've never seen small black olives, but if they make them, use those.
Ok guys, I'm off to do fun housewife stuff until 1 pm when I have a massage appointment! Let me tell you, after hiking all over Gillette Castle with Jesse yesterday, this Mama needs a massage! Plus she's right down the road, and it's always good to support local businesses (at least that's how I sell it to the hubby ;)

1 can whole black olives
1. Prepare deviled eggs according to whatever recipe you choose to use.
2. Slice 6 olives in half and lay one half on top of each egg to be the body of the spider.
