10 Cool Charcuterie Chalets, Plus How To Make Your Own

Food + Drink

As if there weren’t already enough ways to arrange meats and cheeses, charcuterie chalets are the new trend - savory versions of gingerbread houses.

How to Make a Charcuterie Chalet

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.

1. Snowman Charcuterie Chalet

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.

2. Charcuterie Board House

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.

3. Olive Christmas Tree Charcuterie Chalet

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.
