Charcuterie (shar-KOO-ta-REE) is a term that comes from France back from 15th century and is translated as the products of a fancy pork butcher. Modern charcuterie does often include pork, and our board doesn’t include meat at all, as it is vegetarian. But of course, if you want, you may add some meat such as prosciutto, pepperoni, salami, or other.
If you’re looking for a Halloween appetizer idea and don’t want to waste much time cooking, the charcuterie board is for you. It takes only about 10 minutes to put together all the ingredients and some decorations to create a spooky Halloween mood.
Use fancy and moody decorations you have – skeleton arms, plastic spiders and skulls, candy eyeballs, and other decorations, and, of course, mini pumpkins to create the beautiful moody board.
What to put on a vegetarian Halloween charcuterie board
Cheese – Mozzarella mini balls, Brie cheese, white and yellow Cheddar. Also, a great idea is to add Parmesan, Gouda, Gruyere cheese, or other cheeses you love. Use at minimum 3 different types of cheese. One standard-size portion is about 2-3 oz cheese per guest.

Cookies and Sweets. Chocolate chip cookies, Halloween themed cookies in the shape of ghosts, spiders, pumpkins, eyes, and other cookies, caramel corn, candies, and other sweets.
Fruits and berries – strawberries, blackberries, dried apricots, figs, oranges. Also, a great idea of what to add is raspberries, blueberries, grapes, apples, and pears.
Honey. Also, you can add jams and preserves to spread on crackers and cheese.
Additionally, you can add olives, nuts, jam and jelly, fresh herbs, like fresh rosemary and thyme, and other types of cheese and fruits.
And of course, use mini pumpkins of different colors to decorate the board. These white and orange mini pumpkins look gorgeous and are perfect for any Halloween party.
