While perusing the web I found this neat recipe for Deviled Egg Chicks from the Mrs. Fields blog and thought I would share it. You make these Easter Chicks from the same hard-boiled eggs you use for colored Easter eggs for adorable and delicious appetizers that will give you a lip-smacking smile.

Deviled Chicks Ingredients:
- 12 large eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
- 6 tablespoons mayonaise
- 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon pickle relish
- 4 teaspoons pickle juice
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- chopped olives
Directions for Deviled Egg Chicks
Using a small paring knife, cut the rounded bottom of the egg to create a flat surface, allowing the egg to stand up straight. Next, cut a zig-zag pattern around the top third of the egg, careful not to cut into the yolk. Pop the top off and set aside. Gently squeeze the yolk ball into a mixing bowl. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
Using a fork or potato masher, mash the yolks until fine. Mix in mayonnaise, mustard, relish, pickle juice, and paprika. Add more pickle juice if needed to create a smooth, silky texture. Allow to chill for at least an hour before spooning or piping into hollowed egg whites, over-filling the base to create your chick’s head. Slice carrot into slices, then small pie-shaped pieces to create beaks. Place beak in exposed filling, along with two small chopped olives to create the eyes.
Serve immediately or chill covered for up to 48 hours.
