How To Build A Christmas Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board
This section details exactly how to arrange this board.
If you’re making quite a few substitutions or using a different size board, go you!
There’s really no right or wrong way to build this board.
This section is simply meant to help provide guidance to those who are interested in this specific arrangement.
We will build this board one section at a time:
Step 1: Arrange The Top Left Corner
First, place the peppermint sticks in a mini red bowl in the top left corner.
Add a handful of gingerbread cookies to the right of the bowl.
Next, position snowflake marshmallows below the bowl and cookies.
Add mini Reese’s trees and mini candy canes below the marshmallows.
Step 2: Arrange The Top Right Corner
Position four cake mix cookies in a vertical line starting from the top right corner.
Then, place a mini red bowl with mini marshmallows below the cookies.
To the left of the cookies, in another vertical line, add a handful of mini KitKats, chocolate snowman, and chocolate-covered almonds.
Next, add a handful of marshmallows to the left of the KitKats.
Below the marshmallows, hand a horizontal line of peanut butter cookies.
Then to the right of the cookies, add mini Santa chocolates.
Next, add three Christmas tree brownies below the chocolate Santas.
Step 3: Arrange The Bottom Left Corner
First, place the sprinkles in a mini red bowl in the bottom left corner.
Arrange chocolate-dipped peanut butter cookies around the bowl.
Fill in the left side border with Reese’s trees (you started this in step 1).
Position the Rudolph chocolate below the candy canes (that you added in step 1).
Next, add a handful of Reese’s bells to the right of the cookies and chocolate.
Step 4: Arrange The Bottom Right Corner
Position a mini red bowl filled with whipped cream below the Christmas tree brownies (from Step 2).
Next, to the right of the brownies, add three peanut butter Rudoph cookies.
Add a handful of marshmallows below the cookies.
Place a mini red bowl with Hershey Kisses below the bowl with marshmallows (from Step 2).
Lastly, place chocolate-covered candy canes in the bottom right corner.
