My Halloween Snack Board was inspired by the Movie Night Board in a new book, Beautiful Boards: 50 Amazing Snack Boards for Any Occasion, by Maegan Brown, The Baker Mama. Maegan and I have been blogging friends for years now and I was so excited to get my hands on her beautiful new cookbook. 

In addition to the snack board recipes, the cookbook is filled with ideas and tips on how to create any type of board for any occasion. 

Popcorn and candy for a fun Halloween Movie Night.

My grandsons were coming over to spend some time with grandma and grandpa, so it was the perfect opportunity to create a Halloween Movie Night board that they would enjoy. 

I decided to use an enamelware 20×16 inch tray that I had on hand for my movie night board. It was such fun combing through the Halloween candy aisle for fun treats to add to my tray.

I chose candies I knew I would love, Caramel M&M’s in fun Halloween colors and Dove Milk Chocolate Pumpkins; candies I knew my husband would love Reese’s Peanut Butter Bats and Hershey’s Nuggets; as well as candies my grandsons would love like Trolli Sour Worms, Skittles, Starburst, and SweetTart Skulls and Bones. 

After the evening was over, it was easy to put away any leftover snacks. I sent my grandsons home with their favorites leftover candies.  

If you like to entertain, definitely pick up Maegan’s new book, Beautiful Boards, there are board ideas for breakfasts, snacks, meals, dessert, holidays, and even anytime boards. Such a fun way to entertain.
