Here I will show you how to make a Halloween Treat Board. I have broken down and photographed each step on how I designed this board. For all my boards I love to use The Harvest Board, this one is the 4ft board.

What is on the Halloween Treat Board?

How to set up a treat board

First I like to star with the biggest things, if you are using more decorative dishes on your board or even a skeleton like I did, I place those very first.

Next I placed the cookies, you can see the sugar cookies were scattered around the board, I did this because they felt like a bigger decorative piece that I did not want all grouped together. I grouped the macarons and the s’more cookies in one pile though.

After the cookies were all placed I added the caramel apples. Homemade caramel apples are a fun and unique treat to customize to a holiday or party. I love the creativity that I get to express with these apples. Baking is my creative and art outlet. Just like the floral sugar cookies, the caramel apples are a very decorative part of this board so I spread them out all over and did not group them all together.

After the apples I did little groups of shaped scotcharoos. This treat is very easy! Its one that kids can help with at any age! Even though it is so easy, with the shaped silicone molds, each one makes a big statement. I especially love the skull treats on this board.

Now that all my homemade treats were on the board, I filled all the gaps with store bought candy. For this board I used all my favorite seasonal candies like Reeses and Candy Corn. Filling in those gaps with little piles of candy really ties it all together.

I love how this finished board turned out! It was perfect for a large Halloween party. You can make all variations of this board and make it as big or as small as you need. Small boards also make fantastic holiday gifts.

How to store the leftovers

If you have any leftovers, here is how to store each one:

Caramel Apples

Unsliced caramel apples can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. If sealed in an airtight container or bag, they will taste just like the day you made them. I have tested this out many times.

Sugar Cookies

Store in an airtight container on the counter for 5 days. If you would like to keep them longer, you can freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months, just make sure to let the cookies come back to room temperature before enjoying.

Shaped Scotcharoos

Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 4 days or in the fridge for up to 1 week.


Store in the fridge or freezer, if left on the counter for more than 1 day they will first lose their crunch and then rapidly become stale. They can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

S’more Cookie

Store in an airtight container on your counter for 5 days or they can be frozen for 3 months. Just make sure to let the cookies sit on the counter and come back to room temperature before enjoying.

Sliced Apples

If you coat your sliced apples in a little lemon juice they won’t brown and can sit in your fridge for a couple days before they start to lose their crisp crunch.


Leftover opened candy can be stored back in a ziplock or airtight bag. I like to store each type of candy in a separate bag so that the flavors don’t mix. No one wants a chocolate that taste like bubble gum from being stored in the same bag… speaking from experience.
