Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning all the spooky festivities! One of the most exciting aspects of this holiday is the delicious treats that come with it. Instead of the traditional pre-packaged candy, why not try something new and create a Halloween dessert charcuterie? A charcuterie board is a fun and creative way to serve up a variety of different snacks and desserts, all in one convenient and aesthetically pleasing display. In this blog, we will walk you through the steps on how to craft your very own Boo-tiful Bites Halloween dessert charcuterie board.
Choosing Your Board
First and foremost, the foundation of any charcuterie board is the actual board or platter itself. For Halloween, you can get creative and use a black painted wooden board to set the atmosphere of the spooky holiday. Once you have your board, you can start thinking about what treats you want to add to your board.
Selecting Your Treats
When it comes to a dessert charcuterie, you want a mix of sweet and savory treats. Candy is always a popular choice, and it can be Halloween themed, such as candy corn, gummies shaped like bats, pumpkins, etc. You could also add different types of cookies, brownies, rice krispie treats, caramel popcorn balls or drizzled apples for a festive feel. You can also have freshly cut fruit such as sliced apples, pear or berries, add chocolate covered strawberries that look like monster eyes for an extra spooky touch.
The presentation of your charcuterie board is half the fun. You can organize your treats in a way that is aesthetically pleasing while still allowing easy access to each item. One way to keep things organized is to use small bowls or containers for your candy, popcorn or fruit. Place taller treats such as cake slices and cupcakes at the back of the board and work your way forward with layered cookies or brownies, with fruit and candy spread around.
Decorating Your Board
The way your treats are arranged on the board is important, but what’s even more critical is how you decorate it. The goal is to create a festive, spooky atmosphere that your family will love. You can add spiderwebs and plastic spiders or bats, fake cob webs or add a fake ten-inch skeleton that will pop out through the treats. It’s essential to tailor your decor to suit your family’s spooky style.
Once your board is set and decorated to perfection, it’s time to enjoy your spooky treats! Whether you serve it at a Halloween party or enjoy it with your family, your Boo-tiful Bites dessert charcuterie will be a hit.
