Keep reading to learn how to fill up a sweet caramel apple charcuterie board that tastes delicious with all of your favorite fall treats.

Why Are Caramel Apples Associated With Fall/Halloween?

The story behind caramel apples is pretty fascinating! In the 1950s, a Kraft Foods employee named Dan Walker was trying to find a creative way to use up leftover caramel candies.

He melted them and created a sticky liquid. Then, he dipped apples into it – and the famous dessert was born!

But what does that have to do with Halloween? Well, apples are harvested in the fall. And the fun game “bobbing for apples” has been played during Halloween since about the 1800s!

And that’s why this caramel apple charcuterie board is the perfect fall or Halloween dessert board.

Supplies you’ll need

Remember, when you set up your dessert charcuterie board, make sure there isn’t any extra space. Fill up every space with something so that it looks like it is overflowing with caramel apple goodies.

Best Type of Apples For Caramel Apples

For this board, I suggest slicing Honeycrisp apples. You want them to taste slightly sweet so that they taste just as good with or without the toppings.

Red Delicious apples are far too sweet. By the time you add the toppings, the sweetness is overpowering.

Granny Smith apples are a bit too tart. They will need more caramel sauce to make them taste good.

There are probably a few other varieties that taste as good as Honeycrisp, but that’s my favorite one.

  • Snickers Bar
