How to Make The Ultimate Charcuterie Board

As the days get longer and warmer, it's the perfect time to start indulging in al fresco dining and there is no better complement to an outdoor meal than a dessert Charcuterie board. So what is a dessert Charcuterie board? It is essentially a cornucopia of flavors and sweet treats that is sure to wow any guest at your table. The key to the perfect board is having a combination of flavors, colors and sizes of ingredients. We like to focus on the rule of 3 - not more than 3 of one color, flavor or size. This will allow your board to have a lovely variety and really pop. 

Here are a few ingredients we suggest trying for your board:

Fresh Fruit:

  1. Blackberries
  2. Raspberries 
  3. Apples (thinly cut)

Dried Fruit:

  1. Sugar-coated orange slices 
  2. Figs 
  3. Golden Goji Berries 

Sweet Treats:

  1. Giorgio Cookies
  2. Biscotti (cut into bite-sized pieces) 
  3. Chocolate Chunks 

Salty:

  1. Nuts 
  2. Salted Caramels
