The holiday of love, Valentine’s Day, is less than a month away and with many of us still on stay home orders, February 14th may look different. Families, couples or yourself will be looking for other alternatives then going out. How about having a date night in!
Whether you’re making something delicious at home or ordering take out from your favorite local restaurant. The evening wouldn’t be complete without dessert!
Valentine’s Day Dessert Charcuterie Board pairs perfectly with your dinner on this special holiday!
I’ve fallen in love with charcuterie board’s, which originated in Europe and usually packed with meats and cheeses.
The good news is, you can put whatever you’d like on your charcuterie board. It doesn’t just have to be meats and cheeses. Make them to your liking, fill them with desserts or maybe a vegan board.
Charcuterie boards are very popular right now, which makes sense because they are;
- Customizable and perfectly themed, like a Valentine’s Day Dessert board filled with hearts and sweets
- Easy to make
- Perfect for multiple people or a single person, for parties or a night at home
- Affordable, put what you can afford onto the board. We’ve made a board with things already in our pantry/fridge.
To Get Started Making Your Valentine’s Day Charcuterie Board
You’ll want to envision what you want your board to look like, you can make a list of items that you know you want to add.
It’s all about the “love”!
A perfect dessert board with sweet treats like oreos, brownies, chocolates, and cupcakes is very tasty!
Or the loved charcuterie board with meats, cheeses, crackers, olives and nuts is always a favorite!
A fruit, veggie and nut board – grapes, melons, apples, pears, berries, tomatoes, carrots, almonds, walnuts, and pistachios would be great. Whip up a yogurt dip. Make a vegan dip and your whole board is vegan.
Sprinkle your board with real flowers or pedals.
What was in our Valentine’s Day Dessert Charcuterie Board
We made a dessert board with sweats & fruits and it was gobbled up. Most of the boards items were purchased from Trader Joes, which is a great one stop shop for making a charcuterie board. They’ve got gourmet meats and cheeses, holiday themed treats all at affordable prices and most of the time with healthier ingredients. – We love Trader Joes!
- Strawberries and Blueberries
- Hershey Kisses(not TJ)
- Conventional Heart Candies(not TJ)
- Mini Cupcakes – we love TJ’s mini cupcakes and if you’re looking for a full size cupcake their gluten free ones are amazing!
- Dark Chocolate Heart Shaped Cookies with Sprinkles – my daughters favorite TJ find!
- Yogurt Covered Pretzels – They taste just as good as the chocolate covered ones, from TJ
- Yogurt Covered Shortbread Cookies – my husbands favorite, from TJ
A few tips;
- Envision your board before hand and how much you want to do besides assembling it. Do you want to actually make anything?
- Do any prep before you start assembling the board; making a dip, chocolate covered items, baking cookies, chop any fruits, veggies and ect.
- Assembling your board is really easy and there’s no correct way to do, you could make a beautiful piece of art out of it or just lay it all down.
