1. Lay down a cracker base. 2. Layer on spreadable cheese. Cream cheese is a popular choice. 3. Add the decor, like cheese ball snowmen or an olive Christmas tree.
This version created by FARMCurious includes a soft cheese snowman and broccoli shrubs. We’re not sure why we’ve always been told not to play with our food, because this way is much more fun than eating with a fork.
In this example, the charcuterie board becomes a front walkway to the house made of salami, with fruits and cheeses comprising the front yard. This one is perfect for hosting, or for consuming solo.
Creativity skyrockets to the next level with this house and olive-garnished Christmas tree. The only problem is that it might actually be too pretty to eat. Fair warning: if you don’t, the smell won’t be pretty.
