Here’s what you can expect with this Halloween Snack Board Idea
Mummy Dogs and Mummy Pigs in a Blanket:
Let’s kick things off with the stars of our BOO-cuterie board – Mummy Dogs and Mummy Pigs in a Blanket. These eerie yet adorable snacks will be the life of the Halloween party.
- Mini hot dogs or cocktail sausages
- Crescent roll dough
- Edible googly candy eyeballs
- Ketchup and mustard for serving
- Preheat your oven to 375° F.
- Roll out the crescent dough, and use a pizza cutter or knife to slice thin strips for bandages.
- Wrap the dough strips around the hot dogs or sausages, starting at the very top, leaving a small gap for the mummy eyes.
- Bake 9-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
- Once they’re out of the oven, dab a couple of mustard dots to create eyes or attach edible googly eyes for a spooky touch.
The BOO-cuterie Board Lineup:
Now that you have your Mummy Dogs and Mummy Pigs in a Blanket ready to go, let’s assemble the rest of the spine-chilling BOO-cuterie board. I have so many fun ideas, so grab a large platter or large cutting board and let’s get to work.
Mandarins with Celery Stalks: These little “pumpkins” are easy to make by inserting a small celery stick into the mandarin. Simply peel the mandarin and then peel a small piece of a celery stalk for the center of the orange. Voila, instant pumpkin patch!
Pumpkin Bread Cut into Pumpkin Shapes: Use a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter to transform ordinary pumpkin bread into a festive treat. Such a fun way to incorporate the quintessential fall flavor of pumpkin into your festive Halloween board.
Candy Corn and Candy Pumpkins: Because it wouldn’t be Halloween without this classic candy combo.
Orange Bell Peppers: Bonus points if you slice these into spooky faces or shapes for a healthy and crunchy addition.
Rye Bread Bats with Spinach Dip: Cut rye bread into bat shapes, and make sandwiches with delicious spinach dip filling.
Coffin Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches: Cut sandwiches into coffin shapes and watch them disappear. I used pumpkin spread for my jelly, but feel free to use your favorite spread.
Halloween M&Ms: Add small bowls of these colorful and spooky M&Ms…perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth.
Caramel Corn: A sweet and crunchy addition to your Halloween-themed board.
Pretzel Sticks: There are so many ways to incorporate pretzel sticks or pretzel rods into your Halloween party, but I opted for just dipping small pretzel sticks into red frosting to look like – well, I don’t know. Bloody fingers? Matchsticks? I’ll let you decide.
Pumpkin Spice-Covered Pretzels: These from Trader Joe’s are a deliciously Halloween season treat.
Brach’s Caramel Candies: A classic candy that brings a caramel touch to your Halloween board.
Orange Fruits, Fresh Veggies and Halloween Snacks: Think carrot sticks, goldfish crackers, Cheetos minis, dried apricots, dried tangerines, and dried mangoes. If you have fresh fruit, like cantaloupe, mango and orange slices – add those as well. Add all the orange things!!
Pumpkin Spread: A savory option to balance out the sweets.
Gummy Worms: These are always a welcome addition to any Halloween dessert or festive snack board.
Eyeball Cocoa Bombs: Last year I found these disgusting (lol) White Chocolate Cocoa Bombs filled with marshmallows that look like bloodshot eyeballs and they were a perfect addition to the spooky season.
Halloween Oreos: These and other Halloween cookies are only available for a short period of time, so if you can get your hands on them…they are a must for this grazing board!
Hairy Spider Cookies: These Spider Halloween Cookies are so cute and tasty! Perfect for kids, make these easy Halloween cookies next time you’re feeling spooky!
Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake: Pumpkin-flavored cheesecake with a festive Oreo bottom and a spiderweb top, these are the perfect Halloween inspired treat!
Monster Munch: This Monster Munch Halloween snack is a perfect treat to share when you’re going to a Halloween party. Kid and adult approved!
Tips for assembling your Spooky Halloween Snack Board
Think about the extras: Add in some Halloween decor like plastic spiders, candy decor, skulls and spiderwebs and you have yourself a perfect Halloween Finger Food Recipes board. I even found a creepy skeleton hand that looks like he’s grabbing the snacks!
Add larger items first: Mummy dogs, coffin sandwiches, bat sandwiches, pumpkin shaped pumpkin bread, etc. should all be placed on the board first. Then start adding your secondary store-bought items.
Fill in the empty spaces: Once you have your larger items placed, fill in any empty space you see with candies, Halloween sprinkles, candy eyes, etc., so that it looks super full. That makes for the best Halloween Finger Foods Board, in my opinion. It’s so much fun to peruse the grocery store aisles this time of year to see what fun Halloween themed snacks they have available. Honestly, any of these items will be a super addition to a fun Halloween Snack Board.
This Halloween, don’t settle for ordinary snacks when you can assemble a BOO-cuterie board that will make your guests scream with delight. With the Mummy Dogs, Mummy Pigs in a Blanket, and a spine-tingling array of spooky treats, your Halloween party is sure to be a hit. So, gather your ghouls and goblins, and get ready to enjoy a frightfully fun and delicious evening of spooky snacking! I hope you love my snack board idea and I look forward to seeing yours!
