Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

Chocolate is obviously the star here, so make sure your other ingredients complement your hero. Fresh and dried fruits are a great choice and of course adding a few salty treats is never a bad idea. Also, make sure to have ingredients that are different sizes, shapes, colors and textures to maximize the overall visual appeal of your chocolate charcuterie board.

Step 2: Pick Your Serving Surface

Depending on how many people you are serving, there are several different options. For a smaller get together a simple salad plate, dinner plate or small cutting board is ideal. For larger parties choose a big platter, cutting board or marble serving piece. This footed marble serving boards comes in three sizes to fit all your needs. For a gigantic blow-out you could turn your entire table into a chocolate board by using a paper runner. The sky really is the limit here, so get creative and have fun!

Step 3: Assemble Your Chocolate Charcuterie Board

Start by placing your larger ingredients in groups spaced evenly around your serving surface. Fill in the gaps with the smaller ingredients. Keep rearranging and trying different combinations until you get the look you want. Be creative, but consider the color, texture and shape and spread them out on your board. You don’t want everything in one color massed together or all the round ingredients mounded in another. Try cutting larger chocolates into smaller, bite-sized pieces. Separating the different chocolates with the fruits and other treats will help to showcase each one.
