Here’s a food trend we can all cheer for!

We all know about the classic savory meat and cheese charcuterie board. It’s super popular and Insta-worthy, while still being an easy appetizer to graze and snack on. But have you heard of the hot cocoa charcuterie board? This trend totally took off last year and I for one am excited to “sleigh” it!

A quick word on wording: We are fully aware that “charcuterie” refers to meats and cheese, of which this board has none. However, we’ve found more and more people are using that terminology when looking for these curated boards, so we’ve chosen to follow suit to help aid in their search.

Just in time for the holidays, I’m sharing a yummy hot cocoa board with hot chocolate, snacks, and all the sprinkles, candy canes, and marshmallows your family will need to have a cozy night in. The best part is that you can customize it with sweets your family will enjoy and scale the servings for any size group.

Here’s a fun donut snowman treat idea I’ll be adding to my tray this year! ☃️

To compile these fun snowmen snacks I placed mini donuts on a wooden skewer and added M&Ms candy for buttons and for the nose. The scarf is Twizlers pull-apart candy, while the hat is a peanut butter cup, and the eyes are mini chocolate chips.

These are fun and easy to compile and would be a fun project to do with the kids!

I love this hot chocolate idea because it’s so easy and fun. Simply grab a large tray, serving platter, cutting board, or even a sheet pan would work, too. Add and arrange your favorite hot cocoa toppings and holiday treats. If you have some Christmas mugs, they would be fun as a holder for candy canes.
