How to Make an Easy Halloween Charcuterie Board
Happy October! I’m really getting into the Halloween spirit this year. Mainly because my kids are old enough to actually enjoy Halloween and they are obsessed with all the spooky decorations and costumes.
I have been loving making charcuterie boards for lunch and dinner. I recently decided to create themed ones for each season and all the holidays. So of course I had to include Halloween! Today I’m sharing how to make an easy Halloween charcuterie board
The first thing I did was get some inspiration from Pinterest. I knew I wanted to have a more “Halloween” themed board versus a “fall” cheese and fruit board. So I planned on a lot of Halloween candy and Halloween themed snacks. But I wanted to see if there were any other easy options or things I was missing.
I’m going to link up everything I used for my Halloween charcuterie board because I was able to order them online and pick up (through drive up) at the store. Life changing!
So the loose, messy items that needed containers, like the candy corn and candy bones I knew were going to be in a bowl, so I put those on the board first. Then I chose bigger items to go around them and tried to make a circle around those bigger pieces.
I also knew I wanted the ghost cheese cut outs and the “BOO” cookie front and center. Then I just filled in the empty areas with random things that fit the size (grapes & mummy dogs). For smaller spaces, I filled in with candy pumpkins and chocolate eyeballs.
For an extra touch I added some candy eyeballs to the grapes. On their own they’re just grapes but add some eyes and they’re now fun, little monsters.
I added pumpkins as well because that is just classic Halloween decor. Also lit some tea light candles and added some spiderwebs for a more creepy, spooky feel. Spider rings on the board, and we’re all set!
The important thing to remember about a Halloween Charcuterie board (or any charcuterie board for that matter) is to have fun with it!
I make them healthy snack boards most of the time, so for this one, I thought it was okay to add some not so healthy treats as well! What treats would you add to your Halloween Charcuterie Board?
