How To Make An Dark Chocolate Desert Charcuterie Board

How To Make An Dark Chocolate Desert Charcuterie Board

Basically, dessert charcuterie board is like a cheese board with dessert! The best think what you can learn on National Dark Chocolate Day!

Alas, while you’re probably used to nibbling on some squares of 70% cacao after dinner, have you ever thought of making the experience of enjoying dark chocolate into an event?

Allow us to introduce an exciting new concept: The dark chocolate ‘charcuterie’ board.

These types of sweet tooth-approved boards began trending during the holiday season thanks to YouTube, Instagram, and various food bloggers—they even made their way onto a segment of the Today show. Unlike a traditional charcuterie board of meats, cheeses, chutneys, and fruit (which can quickly escalate in price), this alternative is cost-effective and can even be made vegan-friendly.

Here are five ideas on how to make your own!

Hot cocoa board

One of the first types of chocolate charcuterie boards to start doing the rounds on Instagram was the hot cocoa version. Think, everything you would need to make a delicious mug of the quintessential winter weather comfort drink, all laid out in a pretty and picturesque way for your guests to customize their ideal beverage. If you’re ready to give it a go for your next small gathering at home, stock up on cute little mugs to hold the milk, good quality dark chocolate for melting, marshmallows, chocolate flakes, peppermint pieces, mini caramel squares, and more. You can also swap out traditional spoons for candy canes, cookie straws, or cinnamon sticks. And hey, maybe add some mini bottles of cream liquor if it’s set to be an adult’s only event. We won’t tell!

Fondue-style dark chocolate board

Even the crowd-pleaser, fondue is as decadent as it is fun to partake in. To tailor the concept to the tastes of the dessert lovers in your life, melt some dark chocolate and present it in a small bowl on the center of the board. Add a container of miniature skewers or toothpicks, and fill the board with perfect pairings for dipping. We like fresh berries, popcorn, nuts, pretzels, peanut brittle, and biscotti. Ooh la, Chocolat!

Savory and sweet

Who doesn’t love a mix of salty and sweet? Ensure your board will be a hit with everyone by mixing up the notion of a traditional charcuterie board. Opt for strong, distinctive cheeses that spread nicely on crackers, salted nuts, and bread, and include the surprise addition of dark sliced up dark chocolate. Among the more savory foods, it has a delicious way of breaking things up and keeping your palette entertained. Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it!

S’mores board

Nostalgic and tasty: a s’mores board is a culinary trip down memory lane. No campfire? No problem! Opt instead for Fluff (that is, marshmallows in a jar), and add graham crackers, dark chocolate squares, and other toppings like cinnamon or candies to your board. We guarantee that this one will please people of every age!
