Cocoa & Charcuterie Boards- Oh My!
One of the best trends to come out of the crazy year 2020 was the charcuterie board. These boards come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate the most intimate of gatherings, to the full-on blow out. Traditionally charcuterie boards were created using meats and cheeses, but I'm delighted to say that the latest rage is to make them with cocoa and all the toppings. Clearly, we are taking dessert up a notch with this idea.
While there is no "right" or "wrong" way to make a charcuterie board, let's face it- looks are important! The real beauty of the cocoa and charcuterie board is the infinite number of possibilities you can put together. The goal here is to create a custom board that not only looks amazing but will also include the perfect ingredients for you and those lucky enough to take part in the fun.
