We aren’t ashamed to admit we’re completely obsessed with charcuterie boards, and why wouldn’t we be? Whether it’s a fajita charcuterie board, a movie night charcuterie board, or your classic meat and cheese board, you truly can’t go wrong with a snack that is arranged beautifully and includes every element you could possibly want. The holidays are quickly approaching and charcuterie boards are super simple to throw together in a pinch or just look really fancy and take minimal prep. Today we’re simply providing you with some Christmas charcuterie board inspiration and we’ll leave the rest up to you. Let’s get started.
Candy Cane Caprese Board
We’ll start off simple, but effective. This Caprese board couldn’t be easier to put together and screams ‘Christmastime!’ You’ll simply arrange your mozzarella and tomatoes to look like a candy cane, then provide guests with some homemade crostini, a side of balsamic vinegar, a little bit of garnish, and you’re done!

Christmas Cookie Charcuterie Board
We started off savory, but now we’re going to sweeten things up a bit. Besides, what’s Christmas without at least one or two big sugar rushes? Not only do we love the idea of sneaking a little bit of raw cookie dough as we bake all of these things, but is there a better smell than cookies baking? We also think it’s genius to include dips for your cookies. Get the full recipe/description here!
Okay, we’re really kicking it up a notch with this charcutewreath! Before we get started, we feel as though we should let you know that making meat roses is super easy and all you need is the brim of a glass and you’ll be snazzing up your board in no time. Nab your favorite crackers, meats, cheeses, fruits, and Christmas cookies to make sure you have a variety of colors, shapes, and dimensions included on your board. You can mix and match to create the prettiest, and most delicious, charcutewreath. Serve this board up with a favorite bottle of wine and everyone will be having a very merry Christmas!

Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board
Our fourth and final Christmas board idea is for dessert and hot chocolate lovers alike and admittedly, we fall under both of those categories. This hot chocolate board features pretty much anything and everything you could possibly think of to put in (or rather on) your hot chocolate. If you’re lucky enough to reside somewhere where bonfires are still a thing, we highly recommend having this at your next fire pit soiree! Get the ingredients here.
