Deviled Egg Chicks
12 large hard-boiled EGGS, peeled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp. yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
24 mini chocolate chips or cut up olives
1 baby carrot, cut into 12 small pieces
1.) SLICE a small portion off the bottom (wide portion) of the egg white so that it can stand upright. CUT approximately 1/4th off the top of the egg (enough to expose the yolk).
2.) REMOVE the egg yolks, being careful not to tear the egg whites.
3.) PLACE yolks in a medium bowl. STIR mayonnaise, mustard and salt into yolks until well blended.
4.) REFRIGERATE egg yolk mixture 2 hours or until well chilled.
5.) FILL each egg white with some of the egg yolk mixture, rounding off the top of the mixture for the “chick’s” head. For each “chick”, USE 2 mini chocolate chips for eyes and a piece of the carrot for a beak.
6.) REFRIGERATE until ready to serve.
