Growing up, my sister was always obsessed with Halloween; as soon as October hit it was “Pull out the decorations, fam!” And this year was no exception: the spooky light-up bat eyes have been hung in the bushes and the front door has been wrapped in bright yellow “CAUTION!” tape. Now all we need is a spooky cheese plate to go along with it!
Brie with Hot Pepper Raspberry Preserves
What says Halloween more than a gooey piece of Brie slathered with some ominously blood-red jelly?! Pick your favorite Brie (we used Brie D’Amir for this one) and crack open a jar of Rothschild Farm’s Hot Pepper Raspberry Preserves. Grab a spreader and go nuts! The more preserves you use, in my opinion, the better.
Tomme des Pyrenees with Peppercorn
A new addition to our Vineyard Markets, this creepy delight is super creamy with a unique peppery flavor that’s sure to wake up the dead! Wrapped in a Frankenstein-green wax, this cheese is a must-have for this holiday.
Calkins Creamery Vampire Slayer
Could a Halloween cheese board be complete without this cheese? I think not! Keep those baddies away and ensure that you have a fang-free night with this secret weapon: a flavorful cheddar marbled with garlic and paprika (read more about it HERE).
And of course, we’ve got one more special limited-time treat to share in the spirit of Halloween. Called “Boo Chips”, these little guys are potato chips made in the shape of ghosts! With a light airy texture and a nice crisp taste, a bag of our Boo Chips is sure to make your fellow ghouls feel right at home.
* Be sure to let your cheeses come to room temperature before serving to your guests and ghouls to get the ultimate tasty bite.
