Why Make a Hot Chocolate Charcuterie?
Before you make this board, you must learn how to say Charcuterie. It is pronounced shar-koo-tuh-ree. These boards are traditionally made with meats and cheeses but have become very popular over the years to involve treats, fruits, vegetables, and crackers. Basically, you can put anything you want on them, and it becomes a giant, themed snack board that looks stunning.
This board, in particular, is perfect for any family get-togethers or parties throughout the cold, winter months! Because it’s based around (you guessed it!) hot chocolate, it really can go with any winter holiday. I love having different options for mix-ins and toppings for my hot chocolate and this is such a new and creative way to display them all! Use some homemade marshmallows on this board, and it will really take it over the top!
