Nothing says “I love you” like a beautifully presented grazing board. A refined selection of treats is the perfect way to make anyone feel special (I don’t know about you, but food is definitely the way to my heart.) Grazing boards are really popular for a few good reasons: They’re very simple and fun to create, they’re customizable to your preferences, and they’re also practical and delicious!
If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a grazing board is a lot like a cheese board or charcuterie board. A serving platter, board, or tray is filled with smaller-sized snacks in a unique or stylish way. The idea behind it is to graze your way through the food while relaxing at home, attending a party, etc.
Grazing boards can make a great addition to any party, celebration, or date night. Since Valentine’s day is right around the corner, what could be more fun than creating a board with your sweetheart in mind? We have created five different boards to give a range of ideas for your own board!
For the One with a Sweet Tooth
For this ultimate Valentine board, we included cookies (sugar cookies and macaroons), traditional valentine’s day candies – conversation hearts, marshmallows, and chocolate fudge-filled pirouettes. We added cream cheese frosting mixed with cherries and nutella for the treats to be dipped in!
For the One that Likes to Stick to Tradition
This more traditional board is filled with meats, cheeses, and fruits. The cheeses include brie, mozzarella, pepperjack, and colby jack. For fruits, we have blueberries, tangerines, and raspberries. The meats – salami and prosciutto. We also included triscuits and pita crackers!
For the One that Likes to Be Healthy(ish)
This board is filled with all of the meats and veggies for those that have a more restrictive diet. On this board, you will find cucumbers, bell peppers carrots, salamis, and prosciutto as well as pita chips, garlic roasted hummus, and olives!
For the One that Can’t Get Enough Brunch
The brunch board is probably my most favorite. Chocolate chip waffles and pancakes with syrup, raspberries, blueberries, and bacon – yes please!
