The Christmas countdown begins, which means it's all about parties and gatherings. Christmas dessert charcuterie board - easy and best way to put all simple impressive festive-themed desserts together. Putting together a big dessert platter filled with holiday treats not only satisfies the crowd's sweet tooth with whatever they fancy, but it also reduces the work for the host.
What dessert goes well with a charcuterie board?
Anything can go on the charcuterie board. From cakes, cookies, and candies to mini pies, mini pavlovas, brownies, tarts, turnovers, fudge, etc. You can also add fresh fruits, crackers, dip, etc. The more variety, the better it is.
This year my dessert table is filled only with homemade goodies. All simple desserts you make in advance for the big day.
I have not included any store-bought goodies here. But feel free to add store-bought Christmas candies, pretzels, and more.
How to make the best Christmas dessert charcuterie board?
You will need a large dessert table, cutting board, or round turntable like the one I have used.
Arrange all the festive desserts you have planned one after the other. If possible, arrange the desserts in such a way that it looks visually appealing.
If there are empty spaces on your charcuterie board, fill it with fresh fruits like strawberries or your favorite holiday candies.
To make it more decorative, you can finish it off with holiday-themed sprinkles, candy canes, and fresh herbs (all optional).
What do you put on the dessert board?
From cookies, candies, chocolates, baked treats (cake, pavlova, brownies, fudge), no-bake desserts, truffles, marshmallow dip, whipped cream shots with your favorite fruit compote, etc.
There is nothing right and wrong while making a charcuterie board. All you have to remember is that your board must look full and impressive. If you know that your crowd loves some dessert, do add it to the board.
