Christmas dessert charcuterie board that are cheap and easy to make are not easy to come by, but I have got you covered!
This Christmas dessert has a white chocolate truffle angel which is my favorite part!
Charcuterie. How many times did I say that wrong before I figured it out? Now it rolls off my tongue all the time!
I love the charcuterie trend and I hope it stays around for a while. I love it for get-togethers, but a charcuterie board for dinner is pretty cool too.
We used to call it a meat and cheese tray, but I like the charcuterie board so much better. It’s like a meat tray in french. (Not really but pretty close!)
Today I have a treat for you, other than my dessert charcuterie board! I am sharing a whole bunch of different charcuterie boards that my friends have made and they are conveniently linked for you at the bottom of this post.
Thank you Wendy at WM Design House for coordinating this wonderful collaboration for us!
My friend Susan and Hen and Horse Design is showing you How to Make a Christmas Charcuterie Board and it looks like the perfect savory to my sweet board!

How to Put Together a Christmas Dessert Charcuterie Board
- Ice the Christmas Tree
I used the back of my spreading knife to get a thick solid coat of green icing onto the Christmas tree cutting board.
- Shape the icing
This part was fun. Like an art project. I used my spreader to shape the icing into branches.
- Add Sugar
I added green sugar to give it some sparkle!
- Add Cream Cheese icing
I added touches of cream cheese icing to the edges to act like my snow
- Coconut yes or no?
I added just a few sprinkles of coconut to the top.
- Place Christmas Tree board
I put the smaller Christmas tree board in the center of my larger board so I would have room for the cookies.
- Add Cookies
I added store-bought inexpensive cookies but you could definitely fill the board with homemade treats. My next one will be for a family gathering and I will make the treats that go on the board as well as my favorite pecan Sandies!
- Add an Angel and a bow
I thought about M and M’s for the ornaments but I decided against it and added a red bow for that pop of red. I made homemade white chocolate truffle and cut out my angel with a cookie cutter. You can see the recipe Here.

This is the cutest idea Amy, now I need a board in the tree shape. I can’t wait to try this. My only fear is those little fingers will go right into the frosting, LOL
I got it at Hobby Lobby! The first thing Gigi did was slide her finger all the way across the middle! LOL
