Baby Chicks from Hell

Easter is just around the corner, and on Facebook and Pinterest, I’m seeing all kinds of people posting pics of these adorable baby chick deviled eggs.

Cute, huh?

But take it from me: RUN! RUN for the hills! Run for your life, far, far away from any temptation to make this dastardly recipe!

These fluffy little posers want you to believe they’re simply a fun alternative to boring ol’ deviled eggs, but don’t fall for their cunning deceit.

Although, “Deviled” is the right word for these little spawns of Satan.

Y’all know I can cook. I also have an art degree and love making things pretty. Everybody loves my food and my crafts, so last Easter, these precious wittle babies just lured me in! I couldn’t wait to hear the “Oohs!” and “Aaahs!” of my impressed guests when I placed them as the centerpiece on our Easter dinner table.

There were a few “Oohs!” at the table, but they sounded more like “Ewws…” to me.

I try not to cuss during Lent, but last Easter eve, I had to repent every 20 seconds. Because trying to scoop yolks out of nearly-whole eggs, without ripping the white, was next to impossible. And then re-stuffing them without creating more gaping wounds was another whole level of impossible.

I usually prefer to cook by myself, but this time, I threw in the towel and begged my crafty sisters to help me triage the dying birds.

After an hour or two, we were fighting over who would get to use the noose first.

This is the hot mess we ended up with, after HOURS of work.

Every single one of these Frankenchicks has a huge, gaping crack up its back and couldn’t have stood up straight under any circumstance.

Our canned olives were mushy and wouldn’t cut into neat little circles.

I had lettuce to decorate the platter, but decided not to waste it.

The oozing blobs in the middle represent the moment we stopped caring.

I think the scattered pile of remaining carrot beaks adds to the overall crappy design, don’t you?

Epic Pinterest fail.

  1. HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! Although, Miriam is here beside me saying, “CHICKENS!! CHICKENS!!!” … LOL

    Reminds me of when I tried to make the infamous “melting snowman” cookies for a cookie exchange – stupidest, ugliest, most frustrating MESS ever!!!!

    1. Hahaha! What’s funny is that I always wanted to try making those, too! Maybe I’ll give that a pass… 🙂

  2. OMGosh I am cracking up!! I wonder if the pictures they post for Pinterest are even edible if that’s what it looks like when a real person tries to do it…LOL “Frankenchicks” ROTFL!!

    1. I wondered the same thing! LOL Those have to be fake rubber eggs, or something. These things just aren’t possible! 🙂

  3. Stopping by from Turn It Up Tuesday. OMG, you have me on the floor. Who would think that these adorable little chicks would end up causing such havoc. I was tempted to make them, but you just put an end to that thought. Great post, thanks for sharing.

  4. OMG! I have tears rolling down my cheeks from laughing! This was the best post ever — no one ever posts about their failures and if they did they could never make it this funny. So glad I stopped by from Rhonda’s.

  5. The top picture with the eggs on an oval platter are actually my eggs I did a few years ago. They are not rubber. It took me about 2 hours start to finish including boiling, peeling and all. Yes it is a little tedious to get the yolk out. I used a very small sharp paring knife. Also rolled the eggs in my palms to loosen the yolk as I went. Boiled 15 and ended up with 11 due to tears and a couple whose yolk was laying too close to the edge.

    1. Wow! I bow at your amazing skill! Seriously, I don’t know how you did that, but I can see how rolling the eggs would’ve helped release the yolks. It’s a beautiful picture and I hope I didn’t offend you with my humor. I am just used to being able to create cute things, but this one kicked my butt! LOL
