Charcuterie boards aren’t just for grownups! Your little ghouls and goblins will love this Halloween- themed charcuterie board. This board comes together in a snap and is best prepared right before serving so your fruit doesn’t brown.
FRUIT: bananas, green grapes, strawberries, oranges, kiwis, Granny Smith & Red Delicious apples
OTHER: mini marshmallows, peanut butter, mini white and milk chocolate chips, cheese sticks, raisins, candy eyes, fruit dip (I use store bought), toothpicks, Ziploc® bags, serving tray, spiders (gummy or plastic if age appropriate)
Wash and dry all fruit! Melt a few chocolate chips in separate Ziploc® bags in the microwave (just a few seconds). Snip a tiny triangle from the bottom corner of each bag so you can drizzle and draw onto the fruit and dip. Peel, cut and slice fruit as seen to create mummies, pumpkins, ghosts, monsters and more! The stems of the pumpkins are made from slivers of the Granny Smith apples! Cut marshmallows in half, or leave whole, for teeth. The bug in the fruit dip is made from two raisins! The whites of the eyeballs are thin slices from a cheese stick and the eyes are either candy eyes, affixed with a small amount of melted chocolate, or mini chocolate chips. There are so many ways to get creative and surprise the kiddos with a monstrous charcuterie board of their own!
