I like to use large cheeseboards or even large wooden cutting boards for my charcuterie displays. You can also use large serving trays as I’ve used in my photos today. Cover with parchment paper if desired.

Where Can I Purchase Charcuterie Boards?

Check TJ Maxx Home Goods, I get many of my pieces there. I always check Target and Hobby Lobby as well. Amazon sells many pieces too.

How To Make Dessert Charcuterie Board

  1. The beauty of charcuterie boards is you get to be the artist! Choose your favorite fruits and treats and start arranging in groups on your board. Tip: before starting your board, have all of your ingredients in bowls in front of you. Wash and dry all of your fruit, placing them in separate bowls so you can easily design your board. For my board as in the photo, I start with the largest pieces first. Arrange the grapes on both sides of the board or serving tray.
  2. From there, take your candy pieces and place onto the board in groups as you see in the photos. Do the same with the cookies and other small pieces of fruit. The key is keeping each ingredient in groups. Place your cookies nicely in stacks or fanned out carefully. Use little bowls to add dimension for some of the pieces too. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and it doesn’t have to be perfect! If you don’t like something, remove it and try another spot on the board.

How To Store Leftovers

Store any fruit leftovers in zip top baggies in the refrigerator for a couple days. Store cookies in an airtight container to enjoy later. Save leftover candy for another use as well.
