A Peek at the Fun: This fun and simple Christmas Dessert Board is perfect for any holiday gathering. And it will only take a few minutes to put together.
You guys, the holidays are here!! I know I say this every year but I can’t even believe how quickly time goes. It seems like we were just here, brewing our hot chocolate and building snowmen. Time goes so fast. Which is all the more reason to spend less of it worrying about things and more of it enjoying family and friends! So I say, let’s party! Seriously, get your family and friends together and enjoy the season.
And if you are going to be gathering friends and family you’ll obviously need a simple yet yummy treat idea. What about ALL the treats? 🙂 Like literally, all the fun holiday treats. It’s quite simple, just throw them together and call it a dessert board. You’ll look like a rockstar and it couldn’t be simpler.
Christmas Dessert Board:
Doesn’t this dessert board look amazing…and so yummy? And seriously, it was so simple to put together. The trick to an amazing dessert board is to get a variety of items. The more variety you have the better the board looks. Let’s brainstorm ideas for your board…
- Mini Sugar Cookies
- Mini Cupcakes
- Red & Green Gummies
- Red & Green M&M’s
- Gingerbread Cookies
- Hershy Kisses
- Peppermint/Chocolate Pretzels
Once you start shopping you will find so many options for your dessert board. Simply purchase items that look good to you and match your color scheme. I promise it will all come together perfectly.
Once you have your items, let’s talk about how to present your board. I have this round board which I love, but you can use any board you have. A cutting board or a tray works great, you can even use a cookie sheet. Don’t get caught up on details, just use what you have, it will be amazing.

Building your dessert board is super simple. I like to use three bowls on my boards, it just looks nice to have an odd number. Add the three bowls and then build the board around them. Just start to place your food in groups around the bowls and spread around the board. Start with the largest items first and work your way through to the smaller items. The trick is to fill in all the spots. Don’t leave any empty spaces.
That’s it! You will have a simple and yummy dessert to serve your guests.
Have fun serving this simple dessert board.
