What could be more fun for a fall party than a caramel apple charcuterie board? Easy appetizers are a must for any get together. Charcuterie boards are a perfect, simple and beautiful way to create a food spread for a party or get together. Homemade caramel apples scream fall and everyone loves them. Having a spread like this lets everyone personalize their own and have a little fun with it.
How to Make a Caramel Apple Charcuterie Board
First you'll start with apple dip. Our favorite apple dips are this caramel, Nutella and marshmallow fluff. Put them in some small bowls. Next get apple toppings. We like crushed butterfinger, snickers, Heath bar bits and Reese's. Put them in a few more bowls. I used some ramekins and small sauce bowls, but any small bowl will work. It looks good when you use a few different sizes and shapes of bowls. You'll also want to get some fillers. I used pretzel rods, which are a huge hit for dipping in caramel, Snickers, caramels and pretzel M&Ms. Marshmallows are another fun favorite.
Start assembling. You'll want to work in groups of odd numbers as much as you can. Odd numbers create visual interest and are an easy way to make it appealing. Start with your bowls and space them out on the board. Don't make them perfectly even and spaced. Decide where you want the apples to go and leave space for them, since they will go on very last. Next get your larger items like pretzel rods and snickers bars and put them into little groupings on the board. Fill in the gaps with the smaller items. Play around with placement if needed. At the last minute, cut up the apples and toss them lightly in lemon juice. Place on the board and enjoy!
