Looking to hit up the hottest trend of the year? Yes, that’s right we’re talking Charcuterie Boards! There’s nothing more fun than setting up a snacking board to share with friends, except maybe setting up something like this Apple Pie Dessert Charcuterie Board for a tasty dessert experience!

How to Make a Charcuterie Board

The best charcuterie boards, savory OR sweet, have lots of snacking options in small bite form for all types of people. Typically and traditionally these are meat and cheese trays with a few bits and bites thrown into cleanse the palette or set off the cheese just so.

Ideas for appealing boards, this list includes savory and sweet ideas:

  • nuts or seeds
  • a variety of meats to please your crowd
  • cheeses to slice
  • sliced cheese
  • cheese to spread
  • pickled fruits or vegetables
  • Baked Apple Roses
  • sliced fruits
  • berries
  • grapes in bunches
  • cookies
  • dips
  • chocolates
  • cake pops
  • dipping sauces

What’s in this Apple Pie Dessert Charcuterie Board?

  • Three kinds of apples, Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, and Galas, but use any kind you like!
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Butterscotch Sauce
  • Caramels
  • Shortbread Cookies
  • Whipped Cream
  • Chopped Walnuts
  • Hard Caramel Candies

What else can go on a Dessert Charcuterie Board?

There can also be non-edible components on your board like picks, forks, cheese knives, filler, bowls, labels, and so on. I have found it’s nice to have things labeled for folks so they can pick and choose with ease. So I tend to include labels whenever possible.

On this Dessert Charcuterie Board, I designed wooden picks for the labels using the Cricut Explore Air Two and the Wood Veneer and Red Vinyl. I didn’t know I could cut wood on the Cricut until I made this project! Then I cut the name labels out of vinyl and transferred them onto the wood using the easy transfer paper process.

I added the Removable Vinyl “Happy Fall Y’all” Label to my board itself just to give it some flair. You can find that project on Cricut Design Space.

I also made little custom Corrugated Cardboard Boats to use as plates. They were SUPER easy to whip up on the Cricut, especially if you ACTUALLY get the embossing tool clicked in correctly, whoops! And they’re just plain cute!
