Dessert Charcuterie Boards are a fun, easy, and creative dessert option. They’re perfect for holidays, ladies’ nights, book clubs, birthday parties, or date nights in.

And best of all, it’s both easy to make in advance and easy to store in case of leftovers. Simply dip and decorate the treats, then allow them to dry completely before storing them in airtight containers until they’re ready to be served.
And if you don’t have a cheese board? No problem. This dessert board can be assembled on a cookie sheet, wooden cutting board, or any type of large serving platter. It could even be divided among smaller plates or boards and would be just as amazing.
