I seriously do not know anyone that doesn’t love a charcuterie board. They are so much fun to make, and are a huge conversation piece at gatherings and parties. I feel like the possibilities are endless, and my mind is always spinning for new and creative charcuterie board ideas. When creating this board, I knew that I wanted an organic garden feel to it. I have had these moss-covered bunnies for ages, and wanted to base my entire board around them. I then placed the mini terracotta pots down around them and then just went crazy with my food ingredients. Placing items on a charcuterie board does not have to be complicated! The most important part is have fun with it. I promise, all of the items will be eaten and enjoyed!
*Optional- Fresh Flowers to Garnish. I used mini green Hydrangeas.
1 10oz bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs
1 10oz bag of Wilton Orange Candy Melts
2lbs of Fresh Strawberries
11oz of Fresh Blueberries
6 oz of Fresh Raspberries
Crackers of Choice (I used Great Value Rosemary Crackers)
1 10oz bag of Hersey’s Mini Chocolate Bars
1 8oz Round of Brie Cheese
8oz Strawberry Cream Cheese Fruit Dip
A Dollop of Fruit Preservatives (I used an Orange Marmalade)
Fresh Rosemary to Garnish
- In a microwave safe bowl, heat up your orange candy melts according to the package.
- Lay out a piece of parchment paper. Pick our your “pointiest” strawberries in your crate to represent your carrots, and dip then in the orange candy melts. I scrape the bottom side on the edge of the bowl. This will ensure that you don’t have a puddle of melted candy pooled beneath your strawberry. I dipped about 3/4s of the container of strawberries into the candy. You can do them all if you would like. Let them dry for about 20 minutes. You can actually do this step the night before and store them in the refrigerator.
- Lay out the board exactly where it will be sitting. It is very hard to transport a finished board.
- In placing all of my items on my board, I like to move from LARGEST ITEMS TO SMALLEST ITEMS. This will ensure that all of your larger pieces will be the center of attention, and then your smaller pieces can fill in the rest of the empty spaces.
- Place out your larger pieces that will be on the board that will catch the most attention. For this step, I first placed the bunnies then the mini terracotta pots.
- Next, Iayed out my more medium size pieces for the board. This was my brie, chocolate and bowl of dip.
- Then, place out your crackers. These can go wherever and however you would like. Remember, have fun with this!
- The place out your “carrots” and remainder of your fruit. Like I said again, this is not rocket science! Place them wherever you’d like.
- I then placed the Cadbury eggs and flowers as fillers. At this point, you should no longer have any free space on your board.
