These Fall Butter Board Ideas Seriously Have Me Drooling

If you’ve been anywhere near TikTok this week, butter boards have been all the rage. If you aren’t on FoodTok, let’s break it down: Butter boards are essentially a spread of butter on a serving tray meant for communal dipping and the topping possibilities are endless. People are even calling butter boards (dare I say) the new charcuterie board.​ I know, that is a *loaded* statement and butter boards have some big shoes to fill — but I’ve done some further research (AKA scrolling through TikTok), and butter boards can certainly hold their own. 

Creators have styled fall-inspired butter boards with yummy autumnal ingredients like apples, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, and figs. These butter boards are the perfect treat for a spooky movie marathon or a night in carving pumpkins. With fall here in full swing, it’s time to put down the cheese and grab a stick of butter. Read on for seven mouth-watering fall butter board ideas for your next festive get-together.

Caramel Apple Butter Board

This butter board just screams Halloween movie night with the besties. Topped with caramel and apples, it’s the perfect fall treat to make your mouth water. Just grab some bread and dig in!

Dessert Butter Board

Caramelized apples, dark chocolate, and walnuts all come together in this delicious dessert butter board. Ditch the bread because this board is paired with pretzels and cookies as the dippers. Yum!

Halloween-Inspired Butter Board

I am obsessed with this perfect butter board treat that will absolutely slay your next Halloween house party! TikTok creator @liftingiscake arranged their butter in the cutest skull shape. They topped it with cinnamon powder, honey, walnuts, almonds, and white chocolate chips. And get this, the dippers are snickerdoodle cookies! Butter board for one, please.

Pumpkin Spice Butter Board

Calling all pumpkin spice lovers! This is the butter board you need in your life. Start by browning some butter in a pan with pumpkin puree, and then whip over ice with some pumpkin spice until it looks like creamy goodness. Top the pumpkin spice butter spread on your board, along with honey, sea salt flakes, and walnuts. Did Starbucks just gain some competition?

Apple Pie Butter Board

Those with a sweet tooth called and @foodnetworkca listened. This board is made with whipped brown butter, topped with cinnamon-tossed Granny Smith apples, toasted pecans, and maple syrup! I never knew I could love apple pie more than I already did. This is a must for Thanksgiving dessert.
