Charcuterie boards are a perfect addition to any gathering, whether it's a party, a lazy Sunday, or a family dinner. They are fun to make, customizable, and can be as fancy or as casual as you choose.
In this post, we'll share how to make a delicious charcuterie board with fruit, chocolates, and mixed nuts that will satisfy your guests and make your taste buds dance.
Step 1: Choose your ingredients
The first step in making a charcuterie board is choosing your ingredients. For this board, we'll be using a mix of savory and sweet items, including:
- Assorted cured meats (such as salami, prosciutto, and chorizo)
- Cheeses (such as brie, cheddar, and goat cheese)
- Fresh fruit (such as grapes, strawberries, and kiwis)
- Chocolates (such as dark chocolate and milk chocolate)
- YOCO CONFECTIONS Mixed nuts (such as almonds, cashews, and pistachios)
- Crackers, bread, savory and sweet dips and sauces
Step 2: Arrange your board
Once you have all of your ingredients, it's time to assemble your board. Start by placing your cheeses in the center of the board and arrange the meats around them. Next, add fresh fruit, chocolates, and mixed nuts in between the meats and cheeses. Finally, add your crackers and bread around the edges of the board.
Step 3: Add finishing touches
To add additional flair to your charcuterie board, add some finishing touches. Consider adding fresh herbs, such as rosemary or thyme, to add some color and flavor to your board. You can also add some small bowls of olives, pickles, or mustard for extra flavor.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Once your charcuterie board is assembled, it's time to enjoy! Serve with beverages and enjoy the delicious flavors and textures of your board.
