You Cheddar Watch Out! Halloween Inspired Cheese Boards
Looking for a festive, bone building (and chilling) way to celebrate Halloween this year? A spooky cheese board is sure to be a fang-tastic snack!
Making a cheese spread is easy and customizable! Give your board a gothic vibe by sticking to colors such as black, purple, brown and orange.
Try to make a balance of hard and soft cheeses. We recommend a slice of blue cheese, or “boo cheese,” and some “peeper” jack! Cut cheeses into spooky shapes such as gravestones and caskets. Fold slices of salami and pile prosciutto across your board to add a werewolf touch.
Add slices of fresh baguette, seeded crackers and fig toast to carry the cheese to your mouth as fast as a witch on a broom!
What makes cheese boards fun is there is something for everyone at your monster mash! Add fruit (grapes, dried apricots, mango), nuts (pistachios, almonds, walnuts), olives, pickles, pear slices and cauldrons of caramel, jam or honey for dipping.
To finish your trick and treat, add gummy worms, sprinkle fake spiders and make mozzarella balls look like eyeballs by inserting a green olive slice! Pair your board with a glass of homemade witches’ brew or a bloody red wine.
