How to Make a Candy Board

To make your candy board all you really need is a charcuterie board like this one and a couple of your favorite treats.

You can also add some dessert style food or even some cheese to go along with your chocolate.

It’s also a great idea to get the Halloween themed version of your favorite candy and to color coordinate the board to your liking.

Be sure to add some kid friendly candy and some spooky themed touches to the board as well.

What to Put on a Halloween Candy Board

Lets start by adding CANDY!

It could be super overwhelming to pick what goes on your Halloween candy board since there are so many fun Halloween theme options to choose from when it comes to candy.

These awesome ideas will help you simplify the process and get you well on your way to making the best candy platter this year.

Here is my list of candy ideas to help you make one right now…

  • Halloween themed chocolates: this can be any kind but a few of my favorite are the peanut butter pumpkins and the M&M ghouls mix which is just a mixture of Halloween colored M&Ms but they’d look cute on a candy board, goes perfect with the theme.
  • Sugar skull lollipop rings: These lollipops are the cutest addition to any candy board, especially for a kids party. (also these Halloween themed suckers are sooo adorable!)
  • Halloween Milk Chocolate Goog-ly Eye Balls: What is a Halloween candy board without those eye balls staring right at ya! We can really use a couple of these scattered around the board to really make it spooky.
  • Halloween Candy Skull Jar: Finding this made me think center of the board or maybe have a couple of them laying down around the board? I don’t know but I am super into it. Gives it a nice classic Halloween vibe, and who doesn’t love gummy bears?! this is a must on my board.
  • White Dog Bones Candy: I don’t know why but I’m loving it. Sprinkling these around my board or having them all in one section can really give off that spooky ghoulish Halloween candy board vibe we are going for here. This 2lb bag of sweetness earns a spot on our board. They’re tiny and cute and I want them now.
  • Halloween Shaped Peeps Marshmallows Candy: OK, don’t leave yet! If you don’t like the peeps then move onto the next suggestion, but I am here to say I can handle a couple to add them to the board, especially if they’re as awesome looking as these right here. (I mean how great is the cat one?!)
  • REESE’S White Creme Peanut Butter Snack Size Ghosts Candy: I am super excited about these! They look so good but be sure to add them cautiously if you have a peanut allergy kid on your hands. That goes for the peanut butter eggs I mentioned earlier as well. If you know your kid or anyone else kids is fine with peanuts, then I highly suggest adding these to your platter.

A candy charcuterie board is a creative and colorful display of different types of candy, arranged on a large platter or tray.

You can use any kind of candy you like, but here are some tips to make your board extra spooky and delicious:

  • Choose a variety of candy shapes, sizes, colors and textures. You can mix and match gummy worms, licorice, chocolate bars, marshmallows, candy corn, lollipops, jelly beans and more.

  • Arrange the candy in groups or clusters, leaving some space between them. You can also use small bowls or cups to hold smaller candies or sauces, such as caramel or chocolate.

  • Add some Halloween-themed decorations, such as plastic spiders, bats, skulls, pumpkins or ghosts. You can also use cookie cutters to make shapes out of some of the candy, such as stars, moons or witch hats.

  • Have fun and be creative! There’s no right or wrong way to make a candy charcuterie board. You can experiment with different combinations and themes, such as a rainbow board, a chocolate lover’s board or a spooky board.
