Chocolate Board How To

Now this is my kind of dessert, a chocolate
extravaganza and super easy to create, and
boy did it get wows from adults and children alike.

Our family is in love with cheese and charcuterie
boards, and they are so fun to prepare, and this
is a perfect companion for them.

The centerpiece of it was large chunks
of my dipping chocolate.  You can see
that it is Guittard chocolate.  I placed those
on a large wooden serving platter first, and
then began to layer all sorts of chocolates.

I opened a couple of Lindt bars and left some of
the foil on for a little shine.

You want a little height so I stood up a Hershey's
Cookies and Cream that had a Nutcracker design.
That really added to the chocolate board.

I purchased a package of mixed Lindt chocolate
truffles, a package of mixed Ghiradelli bars, a few
Hershey bars, and a package of Belgian chocolates.
I also added a few things I had around the
house, a Milka bar and some Kit Kats.

All of the chocolates were unwrapped and
placed around the board using some of the
chunks and bars to keep the round truffles
from rolling off.  The white chocolate and
the peppermint give a fun color variation.

Finally, just before serving, I placed some fresh
raspberries and strawberries around the board.
The fruit gave it just that pop of color that it needed.

I served it along with my home made chocolates.
This photo was taken before the fruit was added.

Chocolates are so rich that people don't
take a ton of them, so a chocolate board
goes a long way.  

I think a Chocolate Board will become a new
staple for entertaining in our home.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. What an extravagant idea! Please tell me you don't do that when your littles are around!! It looks so elegant and your homemade ones, wow!

    1. I made another one for the little ones and they were only trying to find familiar things like Hershey’s and kit Kat so it worked out great.

  2. O wowwww ...i want That board .....hihihihi....happy week love Ria 💕💕

  3. Great idea. We love cheese boards, so a chocolate board would be fabulous. Getting. creative with it would be a blast. Everyone loves chocolate. Yumm!

  4. Oh my gosh that is beautiful Jackie. I dove into the Max Brenner chocolates last evening, and would love to do a chocolate board for a large gathering.

    1. It really was a wow! People loved it and of course didn’t really eat the big chunks but that gives it some height and volume.

  5. Chocolate heaven! Oh my gosh! This is so pretty and looks delicious. I also think I just gained 5 lbs looking at it. Haha.
