Halloween Snacks on board

Our boys LOVE Halloween, it is one of their favorite holidays. It isn’t my personal favorite, but I am happy to celebrate with my boys, even if that means dressing up..ha!

I may not get excited about costumes, ghosts, and goblins, but I always get excited about the food! Every holiday needs good food, I am all about the Halloween snacks and treats.

I made a Halloween Snack Board and it was fun to put together and fun to eat. The boys LOVED it. I got major mom points for putting this delicious spread together:)

I love making snack boards because they are easy, there’s something for everyone, and they are SO fun! This Halloween version would be great for Halloween parties, play dates, movie night, or game night. You can also make a board for just your family, a fun night in! Snacks are always a good idea!

How to Make a Halloween Snack Board

I am going to share how I made made my Halloween Snack Board and some tips, but there is no right or wrong way to make a snack board. There are no rules! Have fun with it, use your favorite snacks or what you have in your pantry. You can make a big snack board or a small snack board.

  • First, decide how many people you are making the board for. This will help you determine what board to use and how many snacks to buy.
  • If you are sharing with family and friends, have them bring a Halloween snack to add to the board. This will help keep the cost down and you get to try new things!
  • I always try to have a mix of sweet and salty, some healthy and some indulgent, and kid and adult friendly snacks.
  • Next, you need a board. You can use a wood cutting board, marble board, large platter, or even a baking sheet. The board can be rectangle, square, round, long, or you can even put a few small boards together. For this board, I used a large wood cutting board. I also use this board all of the time.
  • Get out a few small bowls for dips, olives, candy, etc. It is nice to have height and variation on the board. Also, do you need serving spoons or forks? Get those out too!
  • Prep in advance! Wash and cut up veggies and fruit, make dips, cut up cheese, etc. Do anything you can so when it’s time to put the board together, you are ready!
  • Lay out all of the snacks so you can see what you have. See what colors and textures you have. Decide what needs to go in bowls.
  • Start building your board! Put the bowls on the board first and then start adding small piles and groupings of snacks on the board. I like to mix up the colors so you don’t have all of the same color in one area. Again, there are no rules! You can always move things around. Once you have the look you like, I always make the piles of snacks a little fuller so there are no gaps. You want a FULL board with no spaces.
  • Snack time! Provide small plates for guests and let them enjoy!

Now, I will share the Halloween snacks I used for this board. Remember, you can mix things up and use your favorite snacks.

Try to choose snacks that are festive! Look for snacks and treats that are orange, black, or have Halloween colors and shapes. I also added a skeleton, spiders, little bones, and spooky eyes to give it more Halloween flare!

  • Cheez-Its
  • Candy Pumpkins
  • Halloween M&M’s
  • Ants on a Log (celery, peanut butter, and raisins)
  • Snap peas
  • Oreo Spiders (Use a Double Stuff Oreo cookie, stick pretzels, and candy eyes to make a spider. I use a little icing to make the eyes stick.)
  • Cheese balls
  • Candy corn
  • Spooky Guacamole (my favorite guacamole with eyes on top)
  • Blue corn tortilla chips
  • Chocolate Pretzel Ghosts (dip pretzel rods in white chocolate and use mini chocolate chips for the ghost eyes)
  • Black olives
  • Gummy worms
  • Baby carrots
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Clementine pumpkins (peel and add a little piece of celery for the stem)
  • Cheddar Sun Chips
