Valentine's Charcuterie Box

Hey there, cheese besties! Can you feel the love in the air? 💕 Valentine's Day was last week and we definitely indulged in some serious cheese and chocolate action! 🧀🍫 Gather 'round as I spill the beans (or should I say, curds?) on how to create the most swoon-worthy Valentine's charcuterie box ever.


Ingredients for Romance: Alright, let's talk cheese, because let's be real, what's Valentine's Day without a cheesy moment or two?



 

VALENTINE'S CHARCUTERIE BOX

 

Here's what you'll need to get started:


Cheeses:

Tete de Maine Rosettes

Unexpected cheddar

Amarena Cherry goat cheese

Boursin hearts

Babybel lights

Double cream brie

Cheddar Gruyère

Sliced goat cheese hearts


Dishes:

Sweet cannoli dip

Grilled chalkadiki olives



Fruit:

Red grapes

Apple heart

Raspberries


Yummy Goodness:

Dark chocolate pistachio toffee

Dark chocolate hearts

Milk chocolate hearts

Candy gummy lips

Dried cranberries

EBTB crackers

Macadamias

Truffle Marcona almonds

Walnut-cranberry-pistachio balls

Milk chocolate peanut butter cups

Raspberry heart sandwich cookies

Conversation hearts


Garnish:

Fresh mint

Carnations



Crafting the Perfect Presentation: Now that we've got our ingredients ready to rock, let's get artsy-fartsy and talk presentation.



Here's how we'll do it:


Step 1: Prep Your Ingredients

Start by arranging all your ingredients in separate bowls or containers. This makes it easier to visualize how everything will come together.


Step 2: Arrange Your Cheeses

Take your hat box (or any other serving platter you have) and line it with parchment sheets. Now, it's time to let the cheese shine! Arrange your cheeses in a visually appealing manner, making sure to mix up colors, shapes, and textures for maximum impact. Cut the brie into slices, crumble the aged cheddar, and place the goat cheese whole directly into the box for scooping.


Step 3: Add Your Accompaniments

Once the cheeses are in place, it's time to add the finishing touches. Scatter your dishes, fruits, chocolates, and other goodies around the cheeses, filling in any gaps and creating a balanced spread of flavors and colors. I like to fill in gaps with nuts then layer cookies, chocolates, and other treats on top.


Step 4: Garnish Like a Pro

Finally, add a pop of color and freshness with some fresh mint leaves and carnations. Not only do they look pretty, but they also add a subtle fragrance to the spread.



Well, cheese besties, it's been a blast cheesin' and chattin' with you about all things Valentine's charcuterie. I hope this post inspires you to get cheesy (literally) and create some unforgettable moments with your favorite people. 'Cause at the end of the day, it's all about the cheese, the chocolate, and the company we keep.


Cheers to that!
