Halloween Dessert Charcuterie Board – A fun twist on serving up sweet snacks, candy, and fruit for Halloween.
This post and recipe was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek, a sponsored blogger virtual event, but, as always, opinions are 100% mine.
Serve up a fun mix of orange, black, purple, and while snacks, candy, and fruit! Enjoy fall colors and flavors!
My kids were absolutely thrilled when I was making this since I was making this before dinner one day. “YAY!!! LOOK AT OUR DINNER!!!”
Sorry babes, no candy for dinner!
Halloween Dessert Charcuterie Board
Give me a charcuterie board any day! I love them.
They can be really simple with just a few beautifully arranged things or really complex with folded meats, blocks of honey comb, and fancy cheeses. No matter what, they are my favorite things at a party.
This Halloween Dessert Charcuterie Board should inspire you to make a board that features fall and Halloween themed and colored items with your typical favorite items.
I love making boards like this because you have so many options to make it delicious and beautiful.
Generally you want to focus on having a fun combination of flavors, textures, and colors. I think this typically achieved with a balance of cheese, meat, fruit, vegetables, dips, and crackers.
Years ago, I went to an event where the host was making cheeseboards. I picked up a really great simple tip that makes enjoying a charcuterie board even better than normal.
CUT UP THE GRAPES!
This is really simple but is a game changer. Cut the grapes into small clusters, so you’ll have 4-6 grapes on the vine. Pile those small clusters up so people can easily grab a cluster without having to touch the grapes much. Genius!
Enjoy a Halloween Dessert Charcuterie Board with your favorite treats. Have fun making it fun, beautiful, spooky, and, most importantly, delicious.
