Today I’m sharing my second Halloween themed board of the season and this one is my favorite because it’s so unconventional and just fun! I couldn’t really call it a cheeseboard because there’s no cheese involved, except cheddar popcorn, so I’m calling this a snack board! The formula for creating this is easy- just gather up all you favorite candy and sweet and salty snacks for Halloween and throw them together on one giant board! I got the bulk of my items from Trader Joe’s but also got many of the cute candies from Williams Sonoma (all linked below). The finished product is bright, colorful, delicious, and perfect for Halloween parties and entertaining! You can find a full list of my exact ingredients and some tips for assembly below!
below is a list of exactly everything I used for this board!
3 baby pumpkins (for garnish)
Trader Joe’s everything bagel pretzel thins
Trader Joe’s ghosts and bats crispy potato snacks
blue corn chips
white chocolate or yogurt pretzels
salt and pepper pistachios
Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups
Trader Joe’s dark chocolate covered honey grahams with sea salt
Trader Joe’s maple leaf cookies
Trader Joe’s chocolate mouse pumpkins
caramel dipping sauce
I began by placing my baby pumpkin garnishes first, with one in the middle and 2 more on the corners.
Dump your caramel dip into a small dish and place a spoon inside so guests can easily scoop it out.
Since I had so many different ingredients, I just grabbed a small handful of each and began placing them throughout the board starting with the largest pieces first like the caramel dip, cookies, chips, and the chocolate mouse pumpkins.
Color is the most important element to keep in mind so I tried to balance the brighter oranges throughout the board with the more neutral colors. I used a lot of the purples and chocolates on the outer corners too.
Use the candy corn to fill in any holes at the end!
