Now, I know that “technically” charcuterie refers to a board filled with meats. But these days, we can gather any like items on a board and call them charcuteries. Why? Because it’s fun!

This hot cocoa board was so much fun to put tougher. The candies and decor are Valentine’s Day themed, but you could easily swap it out for any other holiday you like. Or just make the them hot chocolate!!

Either way you go, you are sure to wow your friends and family with this adorable hot cocoa tray!

Before your build your board, make sure you have gathered all of your supplies.

All of the supplies for a hot chocolate board gathered on top of a wood slab.

Supplies you will need:

  • hot cocoa (obviously)
  • chocolate chips
  • sprinkles
  • candy
  • marshmallows (I used mini and heart shaped)
  • mugs (I love buying themed mugs at Dollar Tree)
  • A tray, cutting board, wood slab, etc.

The trick to a good hot cocoa charcuterie board

  • First, include lots of toppings! More is more in this scenario. I love including two different kinds of marshmallows and both chocolate and fruity candy options.
  • When choosing a board, pick one that is large enough to hold all of the toppings and hot cocoa packets, and not too flimsy.
  • When filling your hot chocolate board, fill it well. Try not to leave any open spots on the board. A little bit of overlap of the candies.
  • For heating the hot cocoa, I like using an electric kettle. It boils the water quickly and makes enough for multiple cups at once.

What kind of tray should I use for my charcuterie board?

You can be as creative as you want with your charcuterie board! In this hot cocoa board, I used a wood slab.

However, you can also use a regular cutting board, serving tray, or any other flat item you can think of. If you are looking for an affordable option, look for the cute trays at dollar tree.

They are my go-to for things like this!
