Today I’m excited to share an easy hot chocolate charcuterie board that you can use at gatherings throughout the holiday season.
Although…admittedly…this isn’t a board. It is a tray I bought over the summer and LOVE. I use it ALL THE TIME.
With the hot chocolate charcuterie I do prefer to use a tray with sides because most often I am putting this together for a gathering that involves children, tweens, and teens….and that is a messy group…so sides help keep all the ingredients and goodies contained in a small space.
Alright! Now that we gotten the board vs tray issue out of the way let’s get to the good stuff…what’s on the tray!
Here is what I usually include on the tray:
Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate Powder
Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolate Powder
Perro Powder (I know, not everyone is a fan but I’ve loved Perro ever since my grandpa made it for me as a child.)
Himalayan Pink Salt
White Chocolate Chips
Mini Dark Chocolate Chips
It’s all just fun stuff that tastes yummy mixed with hot chocolate! Other things you could add could be:
A Shaker of Nutmeg
The options are endless…which makes a hot chocolate charcuterie easy and fun to both put together and use!
#1. I find it easiest to have the hot water needed for hot chocolate heated before hand and then poured into an insulated dispenser. We use a red thermal cooler and line up the mugs right next to the cooler.
#2. Charcuteries always look more festive when the tray or board is full.
I usually place all the items that are unwrapped or need spoons into individual containers and place them on the board first.
Then I add wrapped ingredients around the dishes. This gives party guests more taste options and also makes the board/tray look full and fun!
I am finding more and more often that charcuterie boards are now my go to for almost any gathering. They are simple to put together and are always a hit.
I’m excited to share more of them with you over the next few months!
