Fill a pot with 8 cups water, add the eggs and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 13 minutes. Remove the eggs and soak in cold water for about 30 minutes. Peel the eggs.
To make the deviled eggs, split the eggs lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place them in a mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, paprika, truffle salt, some pepper and the hot sauce and mix vigorously. Taste. Add a pinch more truffle salt if desired. Place the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip or cut the end of a plastic storage bag and pipe the egg mixture back into the awaiting egg whites.
Garnish with more paprika, the chives and some freshly ground pepper.
