If you've ever seen a tea egg, then you know it's one of the most beautiful ways to prepare a hard-boiled egg. Tea eggs are traditional snacks in Asia and involve cooking eggs in soy sauce, star anise and cinnamon. The marinade infuses its flavor and dyes an interesting spiderweb-like pattern into the egg.

While they don't celebrate Halloween in Asia, we sure do here in the States. And what better food to fill your Halloween-inspired recipe repertoire than with a simple marbled (and spiderwebbed) tea egg.

Tea eggs can be made with a traditional, sweet recipe, but if you don't want to change the flavor of your eggs blogger Kimberly Cun has another method. It requires food dye and eggs. Nothing more.

While we know that marbled eggs normally pop up around Easter, with the right color (and that strong spiderweb pattern) we're making a push for it as a standard Halloween recipe.
