Have you checked your Halloween countdown?! Well we are 4 days away! Maybe I’m the only one counting down, but I’m pretty much latching on for dear life to whatever I can celebrate these days. If you’re anything like me, you probably do things very last minute and most likely don’t have anything planned food-wise or costume-wise for this weekend…
That is where I will come in to save the day! If you haven’t looked at my previous two blog posts, you’ll also want to give them a peep. I have easily laid out how to make Halloween Cake Pops and Pumpkin Deviled Eggs. Both are just as delicious as they are cute!!
Of course, for the main event, you should always have a Charcuterie Board. I created a Stop Motion Animation below that easily lines out piece by piece (literally) how to make a Halloween themed Charcuterie board. But, if you remember anything from my Charcuterie Board video, you’ll know that what I show you here is really just a guideline. You can make it more or less intricate depending on your time and resources.
However, if you do want my opinion for what works, and what will really get you in the spooky spirit, I’m happy to. I definitely recommend having a wheel of brie that you can cut into the shape of a tombstone. It’s one of the easiest ways to make your board super tasty and just a little scary. It’s also not a bad idea to invest in some tiny pumpkins for the effect, just make sure your guests know they are not edible. In the picture you’ll also see that I made a few cheese crosses. I did this by using two cheddar cheese sticks each and poking a toothpick through horizontally. Again, beyond easy and oh so cute! Like I mentioned above, my Pumpkin Deviled Eggs are the perfect addition to a board like this as well, you’ll just need a little more prep time. And finally, two of the easiest things to add to your board are the pre-wrapped prosciutto mozzarella sticks. They come in a container in the deli section, or you can totally make them yourself! And boursin cheese! It’s always a crowd pleaser, and here I just added some candy eyeballs, a matchstick carrot for a mouth and rosemary for the gnarly eyebrows!
I hope my little 30 second stop motion animation is helpful & sparks some ideas for you. Now get out there and throw together the best last-minute Halloween you’ve ever seen!
