Get an eyeful of these Halloween party bites! The retro canapé gets a spooky makeover, stained with soy, spices and tea for a cracked, vein-like effect.  

  1. Put the eggs in a saucepan and cover with a generous amount of cold water. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and set aside for 6 minutes in the water. Remove the eggs from the pan and crack the shells all over using the back of a knife.
  2. Add 1ltr (1 3/4pt) water to a pan, along with the tea, soy, spices and peppercorns. Bring to the boil, then add the eggs and turn down the heat, simmering for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, add eggs and cool in the liquid.
  3. Carefully peel the cold eggs, cut in half lengthways and scoop out the yolks. In a bowl mash with the mayonnaise, mustard and 2 tsp chilli sauce.
  4. Carefully pipe or spoon the filling into the centre of each egg, sprinkle with the paprika and chives. Serve with chilli sauce as a dip.
