Chocolate Deviled Eggs

Chocolate Deviled Eggs are sure to fool your Easter guests!

No, I didn’t put chocolate in my deviled eggs! I wouldn’t do that – okay, so maybe I would. But that’s not what this is. These Chocolate Deviled Eggs are just that… chocolate with a little yellow butter cream frosting for the yolks. Pretty cute, huh?

My mom recently showed me a picture of chocolate eggs from a magazine she was flipping through. I don’t recall which magazine, but it gave me the idea to make these devilishly cute (pun intended) little treats. I think I’ll whip up another batch of these for Easter and play a little trick on our dinner guests, by placing a tray of these next the the real deviled eggs – won’t they be in for a surprise!

These were surprisingly easy to make. I used this 2 1/2 inch egg chocolate mold that I picked up from Amazon, but you might be able to find something similar at your local craft or cake supply store.

Chocolate Deviled Eggs

To make, simply melt some white chocolate or white candy melts in the microwave, according to package directions. Spoon the melted chocolate into the egg molds, being careful not to overfill. Once the molds are filled, gently tap the mold on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles. Place the mold in the refrigerator until set. This shouldn’t take more than thirty minutes, or so.

For the yolks, I whipped up a batch of my favorite butter cream icing and added several drops of yellow food coloring. Lastly, I piped on the yolks just like you would with ‘real’ deviled eggs, and sprinkled on some red sugar sprinkles for the paprika.

Did I fool you with these?

    These Chocolate Deviled eggs look so pretty and easy to make. I at first thought you made them with chocolate, and I see you did not. I am thinking that chocolate would not be good with eggs. I like deviled eggs! Thanks for this awesome recipe!

    These are so cute. I love the idea of making them with chocolate. Then my kids would actually eat them. Thanks for the recipe.

      This is a great idea for a kids party. Especially for the ones who don’t like the “real” ones!

    These deviled egg really do look like the real thing! Honestly, I’m a little weirded out by them. They are a fun idea, maybe for a tea party or something…

    Thanks for sharing!

    You really fooled me! Lol! I couldnt even begin to imagine what chocolate would taste like in Deviled Eggs…Than I read further and realized it was actually chocolate ! What a clever idea! I think I will have to try this at our next Family gathering! Your idea of placing these next to the real thing on the table is awesome! Lol! Thankyou for this delightful post and recipe..A+

    I thought I had made deviled eggs everyway possible til I read this, lol – I would have never put chocolate in them! I think it would be a odd taste. I love them with the basics, celery, relish, mayo and topped with a few other of my secret ingredients! lol

    I know that the title was Chocolate Deviled Eggs – but when I looked at the picture of the deviled eggs. I thought to myself someone made a mistake on titling the post. That was until I read about and how it was made. I’ve always been the family member who was never asked to do Deviled Eggs because mine are not up to my families standards. I think I can use this recipe and hopefully have successful. These Chocolate Deviled Eggs look delicious – can’t wait to try the recipe.

    I love this! How cute. I love the sweet take on a traditional appetizer. It’s awesome that it’s so easy to make. I could probably make this easier than Deviled eggs, as I’m not very good at making those.

    What a “Sweet” idea!! (pun intended) Great idea with Easter coming up!! There will be a relatively small group of us for Easter this year, (only 6 or 7 people), so this would be so much fun to do for the group!! Since the mold makes 8 egg halves, one batch would be plenty for one each. ♥

    This just gave me a horrible flashback lol. I was asked to participate in a recipe challenge for a company that provided us with chocolate pasta that we had to use to create a dessert that looked like a savory dish. I attempted a timpano. If you’re not familiar with that, it’s kind of a big bowl of dough (or lasagna noodles) filled with penne, meatballs, hard boiled eggs, etc. I think I used red velvet cake for the “meatballs.” For the eggs, I made marshmallow eggs and filled them with yellow cake yolks. It was a fun idea, but my execution was definitely lacking lol. [#TastyTuesdays]

    I can barely type I’m so impressed! WOW what a fabulous idea! I was sure you had figured out some way to put chocolate (in some fashion) into regular deviled eggs to make them better! That’s how real they look! I am dying for you to swing by my new link party The Yuck Stops Here! It will end this week on Friday, April 4th at 8 pm EST and next weeks party will start at 8 pm EST next week on Monday, April 7th.

    I made these several years ago but used Vanilla Flavored White Chocolate with yellow coloring for the yolk.
