Graveyard Cheese Boards Are The New Food Trend For Halloween And They Are Spooktacular

Move over, boring ol’ Cheese and Charcuterie boards. Halloween is in the house, and it is TAKING OVER!

These aren’t just cheese boards, they are GRAVEYARD cheese boards, and they are so much stinkin’ fun!!

Basically, you set up the cheese, meats, fruits, nuts, and other fixings into headstones, crosses, coffins, and tombs — or mausoleums, if you will.

Basically, you make it look like a scene straight out of a vampire movie. Bwahahaha!

There is no set pattern to the decor here, so let your imagination run wild.

Grab a bunch of different cheeses. I might want to suggest Aldi here. They have such a GREAT selection of cheeses. #notsponsored

Cut them into ghostly shapes, make them into headstones, fashion a big chunk into a coffin, make some crosses — if you can dream it up, you can do it!

Need an easy spooky snack? Great for Halloween parties or even as a quick meal before trick or treating, and it couldn't be easier! Load your board up with lots of goodies! Make it fun with an easy to create "coffin" and graveyard! 💀🕷️🖤⚰️ What's your favorite cheese? Tell me below! ⬇️ . I've got: -a wedge of triple cream brie from @traderjoes (lop off the corners and it looks like a coffin! Prop it up on one of the pieces you removed) – an assortment of olives (reminiscent of eyeballs) from @phoeniciafoods – fresh figs – Oregonzola Gorgonzola from @dairymaids – black seedless grapes – 1655 Gruyere from @dairymaids cut into "stones" for my cemetery wall – a beautiful chocolate pumpkin centerpiece from @cacaoandcardamom containing a few gumball eyes from @worldmarket – Marieke aged Gouda I cut as tombstones from @dairymaids – chocolate covered & dusted almonds from @getskinnydipped – ghost & bat potato chips from @traderjoes -Roelli Haus Select cut into crosses and more "stones" -Medjool dates (they remind me of cockroaches…) -dried apricots -assorted sourdough crisps from @dairymaids . OR get really creepy and form a hand using a soft moldable cheese like @dairymaids Beatie Farms Miette goat cheese using a mozzarella & prosciutto roll as the forearm and covering with strips of Prosciutto! . Bone appetit! 🦴💀 . #ainttooproudtocheese #prettyextrafood #prettyextrahalloween #thisishalloween #halloweenfood #classyhalloween #houstonfoodblogger #houstonlifestyle @ainttooproudtomeg

Then grab your meats — prosciutto, salami, bacon, pancetta, or whatever you like, and arrange them in a spooktacular fashion. Or, leave them off — that’s YOUR business. Ha!

Next, get your extras. Fruits, spreads, nuts, candies, breads — just about anything will work here.

Some people even make little puking pumpkins — with nuts or meats coming out their mouths — and it is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen!!

Basically, just go for it!! I have full faith you can make a creepy cool cheese board fit for a ghoul and ghost.

Looking for another awesome board-style meal for your next get together?? Try one of these fries boards. Gah! I love them so much!!
