With so many themes and designs in these deliciously scary takes on charcuterie boards, you’re sure to find a hit for your Halloween dinner party. A festive Halloween charcuterie board is the easiest way to entertain. Everyone loves a good cheese board and we have our favorites that are guaranteed to be a hit!

Charcuterie boards are having a moment online and everywhere on Pinterest. We are here for it! Who can resist a board stacked with the finest cheeses, meats, crackers, fruit, and preserves? If there is a charcuterie board, it’s not only sure to be a hit but also will wow your guests and can be a great centerpiece for the table.


  • Charcuterie. Thinly sliced meats like prosciutto, salami/soppressata , chorizo, Parma ham, etc are all good additions to a charcuterie board. I rolled prosciutto and folded salami and thin slices of chorizo to add texture to the finished board.
  • Cheese. I always use at least 3 cheeses on a meat and cheese board.
  • Crackers/bread. These are the vehicle for getting more cheese and meat into your mouth.  Baguette or French bread and a selection of crackers.
  • Extras: Dried fruit, nuts, cornichons/gherkins, and olives all add extra texture and flavor to charcuterie boards.
  • Fruit. Fruit adds the necessary sweetness and freshness to balance the rich meat and cheese. Grapes, berries, cherries, sliced pear, and figs are all excellent on cheese boards.
  • Preserves. Delicious preserves are also a welcome addition. Excellent with cheese on crackers. I like to add a spicy jam!


Assembling a board takes a little planning but it’s so worth it. Think about the way you can roll or fold the meat to add texture. Also, think about the cheeses that you are serving and how they can be cut to make serving easier. Here are a few tips for putting together a stunning charcuterie board:

  1. Grab your biggest serving board or platter then add bowls for things like olives, preserves or spreads, and cornichons or nuts. Place the bowls on the board, spaced apart.
  2. Place the cheese down first. I slice firmer cheeses into thin wedges and batons. This makes it easier for each guest to serve themselves. Firm cheese can also be cubed. Keep soft cheeses and blue cheese whole, just remember to add a little cheese knife to each cheese so it’s easy for guests to slice a piece off for themselves.
  3. Add the meat. Fold or roll thinly sliced meats and place in between the cheese.
  4. Slice the bread and place it on the board along with the crackers. To make the crackers easier to grab, stack them on their sides!
  5. Add the fruit and extras. Fill in any spaces with fruit, nuts, pickles, and olives. Fill the bowls with some of these items as well as spreads.
