These deviled eggs are perfect for Easter and all of your spring gatherings! Familiar holiday flavors like maple syrup and mustard give these eggs a touch of sweetness, and the decorations are just cute as a button... or in this case, bunny! 



  1. Place the eggs in a large pot in a single layer. Cover with water and add at least 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring just to a boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Shut off the heat, cover the pot and let stand for 10 minutes. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Shock the eggs in the ice water and allow to cool completely.
  2. Peel the eggs and slice each in half lengthwise. Separate the yolks into a large bowl and place the egg whites in an airtight container with a lid.  
  3. Roughly mash the yolks. Stir in the mustard, maple syrup, capers and vinegar until thoroughly combined. Stir in the mayonnaise to the desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the yolk mixture and egg whites until ready to serve.
  4. Slice the prosciutto into 24 small pieces and roll each one up. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and, working in batches, fry the prosciutto until crispy, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, drain the prosciutto on a paper towel-lined plate. 
  5. When ready to assemble your bunnies, place the egg white halves on a platter lined with chives. Place the yolk mixture in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe the filling into the center of each egg white. Snip additional chives and insert into the sides of each egg yolk to create whiskers. Insert two pieces of prosciutto into the top of the egg yolks for the ears. Place a caper in the middle of each egg yolk to make the nose. If you want to add eyes as well, simply add two pinches of black pepper to each egg, or two poppy seeds or black sesame seeds.
