The holiday season is here, and it is time to start preparing for family gatherings and festive meals. Charcuterie boards are an excellent addition to any holiday table, providing a fun and interactive way to snack on delicious treats. They are easy to make and can cater to a variety of taste preferences, making them a hit with adults and kids alike. In this blog, we will share a few Christmas Charcuterie board ideas that will make your holidays even more delightful.
Let’s start with the centerpiece of your holiday gathering – Santa’s Snack Platter. Start with a large round plate and place a bowl of hummus in the center, and surround it with cherry tomatoes. Form a circle of salami slices on the outside of the dish, placing sliced pepperoni and mozzarella balls in between. Use chocolate-covered pretzels to form “Santa Hat,” place it on the top, and add a piece of cheese for the pom-pom.
Festive Fruit and Cheese Board
It’s not just about the meat and cheese! An excellent addition to your holiday charcuterie board is a mixture of fruit and cheese. Arrange a variety of fruits such as grapes, strawberries, kiwi, and pomegranate on the plate with goat cheese or brie in the center. Complement the dish with crackers, nuts, and honey.
Classic Christmas Charcuterie
The easiest and most classic Christmas Charcuterie Board includes crackers, cured meats like salami and ham, and cheese, such as brie, cheddar, and French cheeses. Add a festive touch by cutting cheese into Christmas tree shapes and spices up the board with grapes or berries. Don’t forget to add some olives, pickles, and breadsticks to the dish.
For those with a sweet tooth, try making a “Sweet Treats Board.” Combine a variety of Christmas cookies, chocolate truffles, gingerbread, and candy canes on a wooden board. Add a collection of chocolates, nuts, dried fruit, and caramel popcorn to complement your sweet board. Kids will love it, and being a responsible adult, you’ll enjoy it too.
Hot Cocoa and Cider Board
Provide your guests with a bar of hot cocoa and apple cider. Add some marshmallows, whipped cream, and chocolate chips for the cocoa, and cinnamon sticks and honey for the cider. Add in some winter spices to spike the cider with alcohol like cinnamon and bourbon. The Hot Cocoa and Cider Board is perfect for a more alcoholic kick and cozy winter ambiance.
