What do you put on an easter charcuterie board

  • Vanilla frosting: Use my homemade vanilla buttercream or a can from the store
  • Black icing: to add the whiskers
  • Pink sprinkles: or any color you like but pink reminds me of the spring
  • Jelly Beans: for the eyes and nose
  • Assorted Dippers: anything you please! We love cookies or fruit the best.

How to make a buttercream board

  1. Cut parchment paper to fit your serving plate or cutting board. Using a pencil, draw the outline of the bunny face on the parchment. Lightly add some frosting to each corner and turn it (drawing side down) onto the serving plate.
  2. Frost the parchment paper design (either by hand or use a piping bag) to fill in the bunny face.
  3. Give the bunny 2 black eyes and a pink nose (from decorator icing or jelly beans) and whiskers and a mouth.
  4. Surround the frosting face with assorted dippers.

Variations

There are endless variations when it comes to making any dessert charcuterie board. But here are just a few Easter holiday themed variations:

  • Instead of a bunny, make an easter egg or any shape you like!
  • Switch out your favorite cookies and jelly beans for other dippers and candy
