Thank you for sharing!

Hot chocolate, cookies, marshmallows and sprinkles are a magical combination. Winter with this Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board just got hotter!

I love the world of charcuterie boards. And turning it into a hot cocoa board is more than just a fun way to snack with friends! Oh, those marshmallows, cookies, crackers, chocolate chips, colorful sprinkles, candies, and a lot more…then the creamer and nuts, too… Surrounding the infamous cocoa, with hot milk on the side. Yummy!!!

This easy Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board is a hit for any gathering, parties or even a lazy weekend at home. The coolest Hot Chocolate board!

I mean, just imagine the fun to be had just grazing on this on a chilly day. Seriously awesome stuff that.

Having this Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board is a perfect twist on a lazy day. There is so much to choose from on the board. Not only the ingredients to make a traditional hot cocoa, but treats to munch on while you sip. And so many options for flavoring your drink, you can have a different mug of yum every time you get your next drink. Loving it!

What Do You Need to Make a Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board

To give you an idea of what you can include into your Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board, here is what I decided I needed:

On the side, I like to have an assortment of sweeteners like good ol’ sugar, honey, caramel syrup, chocolate syrup, or some sweetener alternatives. Because cocoa by itself sometimes needs a little touch of something or a drizzle of another thing. You know.

I like to have some creamers, too. It can be dairy or non-dairy, liquid or powder. Whipped cream will do too. Just anything to break it up – you want a lot of options.

You can buy cookies, too. Or you can make some homemade cookies as a yummy companion to your hot cocoa. My favorite cocoa-companion cookies are:

One bowl chocolate chips cookies – An all-time-favorite anyone would love. 

Valentine Cake mix cookies – Have them if you are celebrating Valentine’s Day or an anniversary – anytime love is in the air.

Snowflake Macaron Cookies – For a Christmas celebration or just winter days. They look really great on the board!

Soft Gingerbread Cookies – Ummm. They taste better when dipped in hot cocoa.

Peanutbutter and chocolate Chip Pinwheel Cookies – They are lovely on the board. Delicious, too.

And so on…

Make a list. Have diversity. If you prefer your hot chocolate board to have a certain theme, such as minty flavored ingredients, then gather those treats and place them on your board. Arrange your treats according to colors, or according to size, or according to their kind – I literally just clustered things and filled-in spots with whatever I grabbed next.

Whatever you do, have fun doing it. Because no matter what, the Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board will look great and mouth-watering.
