How to Assemble a Dessert Charcuterie Board

These festive, holiday-themed candy boards are as simple to assemble as they are fun! You can easily make them as small or large as you need for your celebration.

You’ll want to start with some type of centerpiece, like the Easter basket I used. You’ll place the centerpiece down first, then build out around it with your favorite candy and treats.

The trick to building a unified board is making sure that all the candies have bright colors to match the color scheme of the holiday. Go beyond the traditional choices and use color as your guide!

Let me show you what I used to make this colorful candy creation in time for your Easter celebration.

And remember, take inspiration from mine, but there are no set rules when it comes to building any type of charcuterie board. Get creative and have fun with it!

Tips on Building An Easter Dessert Board

Here are some simple tips to help you create the perfect Easter candy board (or any other occasion dessert board) that will wow your family and friends.

  1. Pick a tray or board and the sweets and treats you will be using. I decided to use a round lazy Susan for easy access.
  2. Select treats that will fit the Easter color palette (ie: lots of pastels and cheerful Spring-y colors) and Easter-themed sweets (i.e. bunnies, chicks, flowers).
  3. Add the centerpiece first, or in this case, the edible-grass-filled Easter basket, and a few small bowls or plates (more on that below) to anchor your board, divide things up, and add visual interest.
  4. Next, add any additional treats to the centerpiece and fill the smaller bowls, or as I used, mini Easter baskets, with smaller colorful candies that will help make them pop!
  5. Now add the more substantial items such as cupcakes or cookies, or as I did, the Marshmallow PEEPS and gumballs. When putting your treats down, try to alternate types and colors to make your selections stand out more.
  6. After laying out the main treats, fill the gaps with groups of smaller candies and snacks.
  7. Finally, fill any unexpected gaps with even smaller candies or festive sprinkles.
  8. Have fun with it!
