How to make a Hocus Pocus charcuterie board

1. Make Sanderson Sisters mini pumpkins

Let's face it—a ‌Hocus Pocus‌ charcuterie board wouldn't be complete without the Sanderson Sisters. Start by blending 4 ounces of cream cheese and orange food coloring in a blender to create an edible hairdo for Winifred. Spoon the blended cream cheese into a plastic zipper bag. Snip one corner of the bag and push the orange cream cheese into the snipped corner. Pipe the soft cheese from the bag onto the top of a mini white pumpkin to freeform the shape of Winifred's hair. Repeat this process using purple food coloring for Mary's hair and yellow food coloring for Sarah's hair.

2. Create spell book eyeballs

Represent Winnie's evil spell book on the charcuterie board with a few eyeballs made from salami, mozzarella cheese balls and green olives with pimentos. First, cut the salami in half with scissors and line up six salami halves on a plate. Then, push a straw through the center of a fresh mozzarella ball to hollow it out. Insert a green pimento olive into the cheese ball to create an eyeball. Roll up the cheese eyeball in the salami and secure it with a toothpick.

4. Make marshmallow brooms

Channel your inner Sanderson sister by making these marshmallow and pretzel brooms. Simply use a pair of kitchen scissors to snip fringe on the bottom of a marshmallow. Then, stick a pretzel in the top for a sweet and salty edible witch's broom that will look great standing on a ‌Hocus Pocus‌ charcuterie board.

5. Create a few tiny Halloween pumpkins

For a fun and festive addition to a Halloween charcuterie board, peel a clementine, mandarin or orange and stick a small piece of celery in the top for a stem. Place them around the board to fill in a few gaps.

6. Add some dye to the dips

Use a little food coloring to dye the dips on the board in Halloween hues. Whether you have a bowl of sour cream ranch dip or garlic hummus, just stir a few drops of purple, orange or green into the cauldron for a colorful twist on the ordinary.
