A beautiful Dessert Charcuterie Board is the perfect option for any party! Use a variety of cookies and treats (store-bought or homemade!) and arrange on a board of your choice. It's easy to put together and the presentation will be sure to impress your guests! I include lots of tips for how to arrange your charcuterie board for a show stopping presentation.


  • 1 cup Chocolate Spread like Nutella, adjust amount as needed
  • 2 cups Fresh Berries, adjust amount as needed
  • 1 cup plain or candied nuts
  • Cookies and Treats, variety and amounts as desired
    • Wafer Baton Cookies
    • Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
    • Butter Waffle Cookies
    • Meringues
    • Chocolate Covered Nuts or Pretzels
    • Biscotti
    • Toffee


  1. Prep the Fruit (if using) - If you're adding fruit to the board, rinse and dry well. It's optional to slice the berries or leave them whole.
  2. Add Bowls of Nutella, Nuts, etc - Adding the small bowls first serves as 'anchors' that you can arrange the other ingredients around.
  3. Arrange Cookies and Treats - Start adding the cookies. For the best presentation, I like to add the treats in clumps trying to avoid putting similar colors/shapes next to each other. Check out the photo for inspiration! It's easiest to start with the bigger cookies first, then fill in the gaps with the smaller things.


Leftovers? I recommend storing the different ingredients with their like items. Leftover cookies and treats can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for several days. The berries can be stored in the fridge. And nuts can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of weeks.
