Halloween Appetizer Snack Board

Halloween Appetizer Snack Board Idea - Fun halloween food from Family Fresh Meals

If there’s one thing I love more than dressing up for Halloween, it’s dressing up my food for Halloween. And when I throw a Halloween party, I love to pull out all the stops with a full assortment of holiday-themed appetizers.

Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be hard to do. You can put together a fantastic Halloween Appetizer Snack Board with three kinds of foods:

  1. Store-bought Halloween treats like candy, ghostly Halloween veggie chips, and smiling Jack-o-lantern pretzels.
  2. Regular party fare dressed up for the holiday. You can toss candy corn and candy pumpkins into your Chex mix, use a Halloween cookie cutter on your cheese slices, and deck out a bowl of hummus with a couple of black olive “spiders.”
  3. Just a few special Halloween treats that you can make ahead of time. Like a sweet mini version of my pumpkin-shaped Fall Cheese Ball, some white-chocolate-dipped strawberry “ghosts,” and a small batch of my Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip served up in a mini pumpkin.

In 20 minutes or less, you can assemble a spooky appetizer assortment that will totally wow your guests.
