Chocolate Charcuterie

Charcuterie board, but make it chocolate! Sure meats and cheeses are nice, but how about desserts instead!? I rounded up some of my all-time favorite treats and put them all together to make this masterpiece. This is what Zach and I will be munching on this Valentine's Day. 

You can make it your own and add your favorites. Whether they are store-bought or homemade, it is such a fun, easy dessert option this Valentine's Day!

On our board I included chocolate covered strawberries (my personal favorite), white and dark chocolate drizzled popcorn, pretzel kiss bites (instructions below), M&Ms, assorted chocolates, mini strawberry pie love notes (instructions below), sugar cookies, berries, and chocolate cookies with cream cheese buttercream for dipping. 

To make the pretzel chocolate kiss bites, all you have to do it spread out pretzels on a cookie sheet, preheat the oven to 175 degrees, place one chocolate kiss on each pretzel and bake for 5-8 minutes. Once they are done, take them out and place one M&Ms on top while they are still warm. SO easy and SO delicious.

To make the mini strawberry pie love notes all you have to do it use pie crust (I used pre-made) and cut out squares. Add a small amount of your favorite jam/jelly and fold three corners in to the center. I added a heart sprinkle, but you could add whatever you want (or nothing). Use a simple egg wash to brush on top before baking at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Another easy and yummy treat.

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day!
