Are you a charcuterie board master looking for a new challenge? Is hot chocolate your favorite festive beverage? Do you enjoy all things sweet—from marshmallows to caramel? If your answer is a definitive yes, hot chocolate boards are the food trend you should know about.
Charcuterie boards wouldn’t be complete without cheese and cured meats, but you don’t need any of these ingredients to build a perfect hot chocolate board. They’re all about sweet treats, perfectly arranged on a board with the cups where you’re going to pour your hot chocolate.
The way you’ll arrange this board is entirely up to you. Marshmallows, candy canes, cookies, and chocolate-covered pretzels are the most common ingredients, but you can go with other treats. It’s also a good idea to have some cocoa powder at hand to pour into your hot chocolate.
If you’re in the mood to mix two food trends together, consider buying some hot chocolate bombs—or even making your own. No matter what direction you decide to go in, hot chocolate boards are always a good idea, because they have the power to make cold winter nights cozy, magical, and warm.
