Are you ready for the Easiest Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board? This is it. Everything is premade, you just have to put it all together. This board has something for everyone and no one can resist!
The simplest answer is, anyone you prefer. I mean, the shapes and sizes are endless. If you have a smaller group, go with a smaller board. A larger group, a larger board, or several smaller boards. This particular board was MADE by my little brother and I am forever grateful for it. I use rectangular and square boards sometimes, but truthfully, I prefer round shapes. This is of course a personal preference. If you like other shapes, go for it! Amazon has some good boards if you like shopping there. I have also seen quite a few great ones at Marshall’s. World Market also had some great ones last time I was in.
There are no hard and fast rules for arranging foods on a charcuterie board, but let me give you a few of my tips for creating a beautiful board:
I like to start with my containers. They generally hold a lot of “weight” on your board. For this one I used some small containers I had. World Market has really great pinch pots that would work well here. Amazon also has some good ones as well.
Once they are set in place, let’s start with some movement. Add in those cookies and donuts.
Once your movement is in, the rest is easy- just fill it in!
I will share what I used, but remember you can use whatever you and your family or guests love.
If you have time this Christmas or winter season and want to make all the foods on your tray homemade. You certainly should. I was too busy though and needed this board to come together fast. So, all the foods are purchased at my local grocery stores.
I also created this Beautiful Fall Charcuterie Board too. You can see I chose to make this one up quickly as well.
If you are looking to add some healthier options, what about these mini donuts? They are simple to make and are much healthier than the store-bought ones:
I mean, cookies are also really good on the board, if you prefer to make your own, let me suggest a few I love:
