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.


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!
