I’ve done my fair share of meat and cheese boards here on My Style Vita. From my best tips to curating one for a wine and cheese night, to gameday dips to include. But I thought with all the great holiday candy out right now, why not make a fun holiday “charcuterie” board? What a fun way to serve some sweets for your guests this holiday season. It also makes a great addition to any dessert bar you may be hosting!

How to Make A Candy Charcuterie Board

No matter which holiday or occasion you’re making a candy charcuterie board, you’ll want to keep a few of these tips in mind. Let’s just say, it’s easy as can be and so much fun to put together. Your guests will love it! So have fun with it!

Pick A Theme

Picking a theme will definitely help get our candy board going in the right direction and make it a little easier. Obviously, today’s is a true Christmas holiday board with popular goodies like peppermint bark and Christmas tree marshmallows for hot chocolate. But a few other fun themes could be movie theatre candy such as Junior Mints (my favorite) Milk Duds, Sour Patch and so on. Or you can go all chocolate sharing various white, milk and dark chocolate favorites. Or go fruity and summery. Even sticking to a color scheme could be fun!

Varying Textures

I love the idea of having a mix of textures. This board has melt in your mouth chocolate, chewy strawberry chews, hard peppermint candies and crunchy popcorn as well as cookies. Having a mix of treats is ideal to keep everyone happy and to make your board more interesting.

Different Flavors

Not EVERYONE loves the same candy as you do. With that in mind, definitely choose a variety of flavors that work within your theme. This board has sweet, rich, salty and spicy. Whether someone loves a good spice cookie or a peppermint twist, it’s all here!

Don’t Forget A Beverage

No matter what you’re hosting, if there’s a charcuterie board of any kind, don’t forget a beverage! For a fun cocktail that works with this board, try my spiked hot chocolate or my winter wonderland cocktail. They work with the theme and are perfect for this time of year.
