As the holiday season approaches, food is for sure on our minds. Charcuterie boards are the perfect finger-food snacks to have around at any occasion, and there are so many different ways to stage a magnificent charcuterie spread. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but who the eff doesn’t like little finger-food snacky-snacks!?

Sugar Daddy

We combined these killer ingredients into an eye-pleasing and color-coordinated fashion in our Sugar Daddy charcuterie board. We wanted to combine the flavors of favorite traditional candies with the sugary sweetness of dried fruit—bringing many artificial AND natural sugars up to play. All candies were from a local grocery store here in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Ingredients

  • Banana Chips
  • Werther Caramels
  • Swedish Fish
  • Cherry Sours
  • Tropical Sour
  • Patch Kids

Great in Bread

Piled high with cured meats, cheeses, jellies, crackers, fruits, breads, and more; you and your guests will be wow’d by this spread. Wide varieties of textures are key for a board like this—the sharp flavor of an olive paired with a dry rosemary cracker and a waxy slice of manchego añejo will satisfy every bud in your mouth and leave you drooling for more. All ingredients in this charcuterie board were purchased from our local Trader Joes.
