Thanks to for sharing these Dessert Charcuterie Board graphics with me. All opinions are my own. 

Dessert Charcuterie Boards are all the rage right now and they are just what you need for your next gathering. These boards are great for entertaining because they serve a large crowd and offer a variety of delicious options.

Meat and cheese trays have always had a place at the party table. It’s time to put a sweet twist on the traditional party platter and dive into this season’s hottest new entertaining trend. Did I mention how easy these dessert charcuterie boards are to put together?

Dessert Charcuterie Board Ideas

Fruit Lover Charcuterie Board

Fresh fruit paired with creamy melted chocolate is a match made in heaven. Add some cheese, crackers, and hand-dipped cherries and you’re good to go.

Sweet and Salty Charcuterie Board

When it comes to dessert, I’m a sweet and salty kind of girl. Dip some potato chips in chocolate, add some nuts, bacon, and hazelnut spread and you’ve created my dream dessert board.

If you’re a candy lover, this is the charcuterie board for you! This dessert board is fun and playful and offers everything a candy lover could want. My son-in-law would love this one. It’s overflowing with his favorite gummies and jelly beans.

A dessert charcuterie board is simple to put together and your guests will love having so many dessert options. Using the right sized boards and utensils will make serving a breeze. Be sure and add lots of bright colors so that all eyes are drawn to your dessert board. The fun flavor combos will keep them coming back for more.

If you’re having a really large party, why not incorporate all three of these boards?

I do this at Christmas and it is always so much fun to make it! I love some of your ideas, too! I have toyed with adding those bite sized cupcakes and mini donuts, too.

This is one of my favorite ways to entertain. Making boards is always perfect and gives everyone a chance to choose what they want. Love how you broke everything up.

I do enjoy a chocolate covered strawberry from time to time. That and those little crumb cakes would be a delight to see in my kitchen right about now

Now why didn’t I think of making a dessert themed one before! That’s a brilliant idea and one that the guests will be excited about too. Thanks for these!

I love the idea of everything you mentioned here. It is perfect for parties where people can just use their fingers to grab whatever they need and put it on the plate. It also looks really fancy.

All of these ideas are really great. They all seem so perfect for entertaining! Which is perfect for all those summer bbq’s coming up!

I’ve never thought of doing a dessert-themed charcuterie board! That’s such a good idea. I’ll have to remember and do both a traditional and sweet one next time we host 🙂

I think I want to try all of them. The Fruit Lovers has to be my favorite though. Love the different combo of flavors.

We love having people over at the house and it would be so nice to have this ready for them when they arrive. I think it’s a great idea. It’s also perfect for after dinner! Each one is unique and I love them all!
