Chocolate Charcuterie Board
When it comes to putting together your Chocolate Charcuterie Board you need to make sure that you present it so that every element can be seen. A space for the crumbly blue cheese and for the chocolate-covered pretzels. But how you do it is up to you.
It is one of the easiest desserts you could make, and in truth, it is going to please everyone. My boys love it when I put this on the table after a hearty main meal. It isn’t heavy, you can pick the flavors and things you want to eat, and even though it looks like a lot, everyone is always satisfied and there isn’t much left at the end.
What else can I add to the Chocolate Charcuterie Board?
The fun thing about creating a chocolate charcuterie board is that there are so many tasty treats you can add to it. You could add puppy chow, popcorn (sweet and savory), brownie bites, and even some salted crackers. Another great addition would be to add salted caramels or salted potato chips.
