Why I love Making Halloween Spider web Eggs
You know how you want to make a recipe but you only have portions of time to work within?
Well, this recipe caters to you!
First, you have to boil the eggs, so you can get other things done while this is happening.
Then, while they cool, you can get more done!
So you are never fully connected to the project, as it needs time to cook, cool then crack.
Making this the perfect weekend project.
As parents we juggle so much at once, it makes this recipe manageable!
Make-Ahead and Enjoy Later

Recipe For Halloween Spider web Eggs
- 6 Eggs
- 2 C Water
- Instant Pot
- Black Food Coloring
- 1/2 Tsp Vinegar
- Water (1/2 C)
- 2 C Ice + 1 C Water
- Prepare Pressure Cooker (electric)
- Place 2 C water in the base.
- Add in the slotted stand.
- Place eggs on the stand.
- Set to Manual, High Pressure for 5 minutes.
- It will take 5-10 minutes for this to come to the pressure level.
- Once the cooking session has ended, allow eggs to stay in the pressure cooker for an additional 5 minutes (up to 10).
- Prepare Ice Bath with water and ice in listed ingredients.
- Place eggs in the ice bath and allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes. I'd go to the 10-minute marker to ensure eggs are cooled.
- While eggs are cooling, prepare food coloring, following the directions on your package.
- Remove from the ice bath.
- Using a wooden spoon (or countertop whichever is more comfortable for you), lightly dent the egg, cracking it, but NOT cracking so hard as to REMOVE the shell, that would ruin this project.
- Next, place each of the eggs into the prepared food coloring (black).
- If using a small container like I did, do not stack more than 2.
- Preferred to use a larger bowl, so more can soak at one time.
- Allow the eggs to sit in the color for 1/2 at a time. I add additional black atop but you do not have to.
- Do turn them at about 15 minutes to ensure they are getting coated.
- After 30 minutes remove onto a paper towel.
- Carefully remove the shell.
- And there's your spiderweb egg.
- Admire your craftiness and refrigerate if you are not using it at that moment.
Make sure to us make a second batch and make my Spooky Deviled Cob Web Eggs!
Dress up your tables with netting, and body parts.
Refrigerate any unused hard-boiled eggs.
Do not crack the eggshell too much or it will come off and that will ruin your project.
You can also use blue dye if you prefer and do not have black.
Allowing the eggs to sit a bit longer in the ice bath helps with not over cracking.
Cool eggs are what you want to work with.
