This Spooky Cheese Board Is Perfect for Halloween
A few simple (and scary) touches make all the difference!
Turning your cheese board into a Haunted Cheese Board is so easy with a few simple, gothic touches. Start with a dark slate or wooden cheese board and incorporate dark fruits and veggies. You can use sliced plums, blackberries, whole and halved fresh figs or add piles of black grapes. It's also great to add purple asparagus to your board if you can find them.
For the cheeses, add a strong blue cheese like Stilton from England and a wedge of bright orange Mimolette, an aged French cow's milk cheese that most resembles Parmesan in taste.
To give your board the ultimate spooky touch, cut a wedge of Brie into the shape of a coffin. Cut off the pointed tip of the wedge, as well as the two side corners. Now you have a coffin shape. You can even add a dollop of strawberry jelly to the center of the Brie and pierce it through with a serving knife for a dramatic effect. Serve with a basket of water crackers for the ultimate trick and treat!
