Here is a frightening charcuterie board that's not for the faint of heart. Although it looks hard to make, it's really simple.

Using a plastic skull, covered with prosciutto and mozzarella balls plus olive eyes and you've got a spine-chilling centerpiece for your Halloween party.

Creamy Chicken Brain Dip

Not made with chicken's brains but piped using a plastic bag to resemble a brain or you could use a brain mold for a even more realistic look.

Hot Dog Fingers

Easy to make these realistic fingers give your Halloween party and extra shocking element

Prosciutto Roll Arms 

Using already made prosciutto rolls or making your own, these severed arms are connected to the fingers with a little more prosciutto "skin".

Breadstick Snakes

These fun breadsticks are garnished with black olive eyes and a pimento tongue.

Crispy Romaine Hair

Placed under the top of the skull (and used as a bowl for dip) this spicy noodle is a crunchy treat. made even tastier with a dip in the salsa
