  1. Cover Skelton mold with prosciutto and press down to make sure the prosciutto is at the bottom of the baking pan.
  2. Fill with cheese spread.
  3. Top with prosciutto, press down slightly and bend over corners to secure.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Remove carefully from mold and serve with crackers, nuts, or your favorite dippers!

Perfect Presentation Platters

For this recipe, I’d recommend this skull baking pan and coffin-shaped platter!

Halloween Serving Platters: For some other fun Halloween serving boards, you may love this cute Jack-O’-Lantern platter or this Stoneware Ghost Platter (both from Pottery Barn), as well as this Marble Ghost Cheese Board from World Market.

Individual Halloween Plates: Target has the cutest stoneware appetizer plates for just $3 each! This Jack-O’-Lantern plate would be perfect for this dish, and you may also love this ghost plate. They would also be cute to pair together!

Wooden Serving Boards: I use this rectangular tray regularly, which is at a great price! Antique Farmhouse also has this beautiful set of three! If you’d prefer a round tray, I’d recommend this round wooden Target tray

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in smallmedium, or large.

The Haunted House Candy Jar is from Pottery Barn, but I just found a similar option at Joanne Fabrics for a steal!

Can I Prep This Skull Cheese Ball Ahead of Time?

Yes! It needs to chill for at least two hours, and you can definitely make the day ahead. Just carefully place it in a Ziploc bag or a Tupperware container and refrigerate.

Place any leftovers in a Ziploc Bag or Tupperware container and refrigerate. This Skull Cheeseball should stay fresh for about 3 days as a tasty snack!
