Tips For Making an Epic Dessert Charcuterie Board

  • Prep in advance: If you want to make your board ahead of time, you may want to separate the types of items and assemble it right before serving. This ensures everything stays fresh. Unwrap candies or other small items that are time consuming and store them in a plastic bag, ready to go. You can go ahead and add wet snacks like melted chocolate, dessert dips or sauces covered to small bowls and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Fill it up: One of the things that make these snack boards so attractive is they are filled from edge to edge. Keep adding items on the board until the board is full. You can use small items like candy or nuts to fill in empty spaces.
  • Add pops of color: When you build a dessert charcuterie board, consider adding different colors. Colorful cookies, candies, or cupcakes are an easy way to give it fun colors. Mix up any chocolate to include milk, white and dark chocolate. You can pop in a large strawberry or a group of fresh raspberries in a couple of places for added color.
  • Mix up the flavors: If you love dessert with a sweet and salty combo, you may want to add salty snacks like chips, nuts or pretzels for a contrast in flavor.
