Mix up the flavors and textures to and include desserts in traditional red and green to make the dessert board stand out.

Popular Ingredients for Simple Dessert Boards

There are no rules when putting together dessert boards. But, here are some sweet treats you may want to include.

How to Serve a Dessert Charcuterie Board

The main thing to look for is a board large enough to display your ingredients with room for a nice variety of items. Here are a few ideas for serving your sweet charcuterie board.

Arrange the items around your tray mixing colors and textures.

Add dips in small bowls and although most of the items are finger foods, include a few accessories like tongs to make serving easy.

Can I Make the Dessert Board Ahead of Time

For best results, it’s not recommended to make the board ahead of time. The cookies may get stale and fresh fruit is best served cold.

However, you can make up the dips ahead of time and keep them covered in the mini bowls.

Also, place everything together so all you have to do is open everything and set up the tray.

Kids could even help-especially if you are making a candy charcuterie board!
