Since many of us won’t be attending huge parties with lots of people, I decided to make this particular dessert board a bit smaller. It turned out to be the perfect size for a family celebration. Of course, you can make yours as large or as small as you need.

Ingredients for New Year’s Eve Charcuterie Board
It’s so easy to find treats to go on your board. I used a bit of leftover holiday candy and found everything else I needed through Amazon; although the cupcakes came from Walmart. You can really use whatever you want! Here’s a list of treats I used to make my New Year’s Eve dessert board:
- New Year’s Eve cupcakes
- Werther’s Original caramel candies
- chocolate covered pretzels <— this recipe rocks!
- Danish cookies
- gold rock candy
- black rock candy
- Black Gumballs (1-inch)
- Shimmer Gold Gumballs (1-inch)
- Black Sixlets mini chocolate balls
- Shimmer Gold Sixlets mini chocolate balls
- Shimmer White Sixlets mini chocolate balls
Charcuterie Board Instructions
When making a New Year’s Eve charcuterie board, the very first thing you will need is some type of tray or board. I like to use this Lazy Susan turntable tray as people can simply give it a spin to pick out the treats they want.
Once you’re ready to put your dessert board together you will want to start with some type of centerpiece. This is actually the part that took me the longest, until I had my eureka moment and remembered I had this hat (insert eye roll here).
Once you have your centerpiece, put it down first in the middle of the tray, and then build out from around it. After laying out the main treats, use smaller candies or even sprinkles to fill in any empty spaces.
And that’s it! It literally takes 30 minutes or less to make an outstanding charcuterie board.
