This Halloween Charcuterie board is full of Halloween treats and candy, and is so easy to throw together for a Halloween party or movie night.
This Halloween char-“BOO”-terie board is such a fun way to spread out snacks and treats. It’s perfect for a small family movie night watching something totally spooky, a costume contest, or a Halloween game night, you name it.
I love how a charcuterie can make a random assortment of treats look put together. There isn’t a right way or a wrong way to assemble a charcuterie board.
I went to Walmart to grab the treats for my Halloween charcuterie board. I recommend getting more than you think you’ll need to fill the board, then you can use any extra to refill the treats as they get eaten, or save them for a later time.
I started with some basic that I knew would get gobbled up right away, OREO Cookies in both traditional and Golden OREO cookie flavors, NutterButter Cookies, and Chips Ahoy! cookies. I knew they would be delicious on their own, and would pair nicely with the dips I provided too.
I added a homemade pumpkin cheesecake dip to the board. Some other fruit dips, like our marshmallow cream cheese dip, or cake batter dip would be so tasty too. Adding in some soft peanut butter, or chocolate hazelnut spread is a great idea too.
Then add in some pretzels, maybe some graham crackers, that are also great for dipping.
Add in some some fun snacks like nuts, popcorn, tortilla chips.
You could also add in some fruit, sliced green apples, mandarin oranges made to look like jack-o-lanterns, or grapes. They’re the perfect colors, and would be great with the fruit dips you pick too.
And some of your favorite Halloween or orange colored candies, candy corn, candy eye balls, orange slices. Purple, orange, and green chocolates are a great idea too. You can really play with what you add to your charcuterie based on the treats you can find.
Back to the OREO cookies and NutterButters. I made some of these adorable mummy cookies, with OREO cookies dipped in white chocolate, and candy eye balls. Then I made these cute ghosts by dipping NutterButters into white chocolate and topping them candy eyes and melted chocolate for a mouth. They were both the perfect addition to our charcuterie board. They’re so easy to make, so delicious, and so cute for a board like this! You could also do these witch hat cookies, OREO cats.
I’ll have a complete list of the treats we added to our board at the bottom of this post, and some other delicious ideas that we didn’t use for your board so you can pick some of your favorites.
How to assemble your charcuterie board?
Start with two or three of your larger items, maybe one of the dips in the bowls, or a bowl or candy corn or popcorn. Arrange them on the board. Then add some of the other bigger treats that can stand alone, like the OREO cookies or the pretzels. Then cover in the gaps with the smaller pieces of candy.
You can rearrange and move things around as you go, but don’t over think it too much. Part of the charm of a charcuterie board is the messy deliciousness of the treats as they overflow on top of one another.
Just make sure to cover the entire platter with all the delicious treats.
