Snack boards are one of my favourite dinners and if I can make them Halloween themed then even better. There's something about a snack board that takes me back to being a child and after scouring Pinterest for a while, I thought why not make my own with some personal favourites. We have everything from bat cheese crackers to mummy sausage rolls, so I hope this post gives you some spooky inspiration you need. 

Once you're armed with a wooden board then you can dress your food up as much or as little as you want. I opted for some decorative bat confetti, pumpkin ramekins and little spiders to give it that extra Halloween feel, but you can go all out with snack jars if you'd like. As for the food here are the ideas and their accompanying recipes that I used: 

Bat Cheese Crackers I've previously shared my easy cheese straw recipe on here and all I did was adapt that by making them into bat shapes instead. They're perfect paired with an array of cheeses and are undeniably moorish. 

Mummy Sausage Rolls I found this idea on the Sainsbury's website and just knew I had to make them myself as sausage rolls are one of my favourite snacks. These would be great for kids parties. All you need is a puff pastry sheet, your sausages of choice and a sharp knife to make strips of pastry that you will wrap around and then bake - adding some edible eyes afterwards. 

Shrunken Potato Heads These were actually recommended to me by a friend when I was gathering ideas for this snack board. They're super simple, yet an effective addition as they can be eaten on their own or dipped into your sauce of choice. Simply carve out faces in your miniature potatoes, cover with oil and seasoning and then cook!  

Pretzel Witches Broomsticks I found these through the Ricardo website and despite being a little fiddly to start with they only require two ingredients so they're simple to make especially with children. All you need is cheese string and pretzel - I personally like they're super cute.

Then of course it's on to the extras and honestly I could have gone overboard with these as it's easy to get snack happy! In the empty spots, I dotted around fruits like grapes and strawberries as well as olives shaped like spiders as I thought they worked well with my other snacks on offer. 

I used my Bat Cookie Cutter and my Pumpkin Cookie Cutter throughout and I found them a great addition when I wanted to cut my cheeses into funky shapes. Here are some other ideas on what your Halloween snack board could include or if you want to switch it up and have sweet and savoury. 

If you're looking to make a Halloween snack board up this year either for the big day or the run up throughout October, I hope you've found some creative ideas to do and don't forget if you feel inspired tag me in your creations as I'd love to see them!
