25 Halloween Charcuterie Boards That Are So Good, They'll Haunt You in Your Sleep
You may think of charcuterie as basic, but when it comes to Halloween charcuterie boards, that's just a bunch of hocus pocus. Truthfully, Halloween is the perfect time to get wildly creative with your charcuterie boards, whether you're serving one to costumed kiddos, bringing one to a party, or snacking on one at home while watching a scary movie on Netflix.
From skeleton hands and apple slices with teeth to googly-eyed olives and ghost-shaped biscuits, there are tons of ways to add festive flair to your Halloween charcuterie board — and you can bring that magic to candy boards, brunch boards, or classic meat-and-cheese boards. You can even arrange your Halloween charcuterie board so it's in the shape of a pumpkin or jack-o'-lantern.
Whether you are feeling crafty and want to create a veritable work of art, or you just want some simple decor to toss into the mix between the brie and the prosciutto, there are plenty of ways to give a charcuterie board some seasonal style.
