Make a Halloween Charcuterie Board for Spooky Snacking (It’s Actually EASY to Make!)

Halloween Charcuterie Snack Board

yield: 12 SERVINGS

prep time: 45 MINUTES

total time: 45 MINUTES

Directions

1

For the hot dog mummies:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Pinch together the crescent rolls into 4 rectangles and use a pizza cutter to cut thin slices of dough. Wrap each smokie with a couple of pieces of dough, leaving space in between so it will look like bandages. Bake on a sheet pan for about 12 minutes until slightly browned. Press the eye balls on each one.

2

For the meat-covered skull:

Cover the skull with individual pieces of thinly sliced prosciutto including over the eyes. You'll notice that they easily "stick" to the skull. I left off it off of the teeth area. Slice a green olive and place them as the eyes.

3

For the pumpkin oranges:

Peel the rind from small mandarin oranges. Cut small "stems" from pieces of celery and insert them in the tops.

4

To compile the Halloween charcuterie board, take all of your ingredients from the packaging and arrange them in an appealing way around your board or tray. Enjoy!

Snack board filled with halloween inspired spooky treats

Looking for unique Halloween snacks to bring to a party?

All of us here at Hip2Save are big fans of meat and cheese charcuterie boards as an easy and beautiful appetizer idea to enjoy with family and friends while entertaining! I have even shared yummy dessert board versions with festive goodies for a fun Christmas hot cocoa board and summer s’mores board.

How spooky is this tray?! 😱

The beauty of this Halloween snack board is that it can be done at any price point and can be customized with goodies your crew will enjoy! With that said, I’m sharing a Halloween charcuterie board with some fun ideas for inspiration. The best part, none of these ideas are complicated, including the easy DIY meat skull using prosciutto and an inexpensive plastic skull! 💀

Tips for making the best Halloween charcuterie board:

  • For the spider on top of the brie cheese wheel, I used large black olives! To create the spider shape, simply cut one olive in half lengthwise and position it facing down for the body. Slices cut in half make up the legs.
  • The cute mummies were so easy to make using crescent rolls and Lit’l Smokies sausages, and they honesty taste delicious! See below for more detailed instructions.
  • For the ghost string cheese, just draw faces onto the packaging using a Sharpie marker. It turns out so adorable!
  • I grabbed a store-bought sharp cheddar cheese ball, and made pumpkin marks down the sides using a knife, and then inserted a piece of celery on the top to make it look more like a pumpkin!

I loved making this Halloween snack charcuterie board so much!

My family was super impressed and I can’t wait to recreate something similar again on the 31st. I love that you can use up odds and ends from the pantry and fridge, and really customize it as desired.

If you only utilize one idea from this post, those little mummies would make a cute Halloween snack or easy lunch for the kids this month! Have fun!

I may also do a separate snack board with only Halloween candy!
