If there's one thing I love about spooky season, it's all of the TREATS that come with it! This year I'm summoning up the festive spirit with a few tricks of my own.

That's where my CHARCUTER-OUIJA board comes in handy.

AS SEEN ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA!

Last Halloween I made this CHARCUTER-OUIJA board for Good Morning America!

Whether you like handing out candy or hoarding it for yourself, there's a little bit for everyone on my haunted table.

The most important thing to consider when building a charcuterie board - of any type, meat and cheese included - is that it should be tactile experience that touches all of the senses.

That means, you want a range of sweets on your board - from sugary to sour, crunchy and chewy to soft and airy. Some treats should be open for sharing but leave a few options for individuals to prize for themselves.

Best Candy Combo to Raise the DEAD

Here's what I included on my board, plus a few additional ideas for you to try on your own!

  • mini sweets like stroopwafels and Toblerone - add some chocolaty crunch
  • pumpkin spiced whoopie pies and donut holes - some cake-y texture + PUMPKIN SPICE
  • caramel and cheddar cheese popcorn - an unlikely duo that is the best of both worlds
  • goblin preztels - sugary sweet pretzel bites with a hint of sour
  • candy eyes - so your dessert can stare you back
  • jelly pumpkins and sour candies - add a bit of sour chew
  • almonds decorated like olives - a little trick to add to the board
  • boxed candies like Skittles and Gobstoppers - get the box size for optimal joy
  • boxed raisins and healthy treats - for those who don't want or can't have candy, add some sweet and healthy alternatives
  • mini cupcakes - get festively colored frosting
  • apple flavored goodies - like green twists/Twizlers are a great addition
  • add your favorite candies too!

Charcuterie Chalet (aka the Cheese Board House)

One of the weirdest food trends to arise from 2020 - the charcuterie chalet. It's like a gingerbread house, but made from crackers, meat and cheese.
