How to Create an Awesome and Easy Halloween Breakfast Board

While I’m definitely a simple person at heart, there’s something about holidays that bring out the “extra” in me. From home decor to traditions, I just love to go all out and make these moments feel super special.

So when I saw the Dash Halloween Waffle Makers at Target, I couldn’t resist grabbing a few of them. And when I posted this photo of my Halloween Breakfast Board to Instagram, I got tons of DMs about how it was created…

A halloween breakfast board with spider web shaped waffles, skull shaped waffles, bacon, and other breakfast board toppings.

That said, I figured I’d link all of the tools here so you guys have easy access to them!

I also figured I’d drop a few additional ideas you could incorporate into your halloween breakfast board creations.

Let’s get into it…

Halloween Breakfast Board Tools

To replicate my easy Halloween breakfast charcuterie board, you just need a few things: a spider web waffle maker, skull waffle maker, and/or pumpkin shaped waffle maker. You’l also want some bowls (like these glass bowls from Target) for your toppings and of course a cheese board for your base.

Halloween Breakfast Board Toppings and Sides

Since I made this just for me and Dane, I didn’t go crazy with the toppings or sides. I just laid out a few things we both like – peanut butter, chocolate chips, and maple syrup.

But I feel like with a bigger family (and more kids!) these options could get really fun and creative.

For instance, you could add halloween sprinkles, a larger variety of breakfast meats, and/or Halloween themed fruit (I’ve pinned some ideas on my Pinterest page) to your board.

You could also add a festive pop of color using Halloween treats like candy corn or scarecrow crunch.

Additional Tips

First, note that in order to create more precise shapes I did have to do some trimming! Maybe I just need a little more practice to get the shapes perfect, but just a heads up that you might have to do some additional work once you’ve removed them from the waffle makers.

Second, I used Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes Mix for these. The best deal on this (at least right now) is at Costco, and I love it because you can use it to make waffles OR pancakes. So if there’s someone in your family who doesn’t like waffles, you could always make some pancakes and cut them out using Halloween cookie cutters. My only advice here is to get larger cookie cutters (like 3+ inches). I tried to use smaller ones (like 2 inches) and the shapes did not turn out very distinct.

I hope this answers all of your questions about this Halloween breakfast board, but if there’s anything else you want to know please drop a comment and I’ll get back to you!
