This Is How to Make a Cheese Board for Valentine’s Day

We're sharing the most gorgeous ideas for Valentine's Day cheese boards. Don't forget the chocolate!

We’re loving all the cheese board trends right now. Even with gatherings that are much smaller and more intimate, cheese boards and snack boards are a great way to make a holiday—or a regular day—feel extra special. Why should Valentine’s Day be any different? This is an excellent way to show your love to friends and family.

How to Make a Valentine’s Board

Maegan Brown is @TheBakerMama on Instagram and author of the cookbook Beautiful Boards. She also shares the most gorgeous boards with us! The main focus of her stunning Valentine’s-themed board is dark chocolate fudge hearts with flaky sea salt. Take a look:

You can make homemade fudge to star in your Valentine’s Day cheese board, too. Then, Maegan recommends cheeses, meats and accompaniments in various shades of red, purple, pink and white to make your spread look festive.

You’ll need heart-shaped cookie cutters in all sizes for this board, too. Use them to cut our heart-shaped brownies, meats and cheeses like mozzarella slices. Maegan also uses heart-shaped ramekins to hold smaller snacks. Lovely!

Our Favorite Valentine’s Day Cheese Boards

Charcuterie boards (the fancy name for snack boards) are typically assembled using meats and cheeses, with an accompaniment of fruits, nuts and crackers. The traditional rules on how to build these boards have been thrown out the window and replaced with unexpected ideas, shapes and sizes—like these Disney-themed snack boards. Here are some of our favorite Valentine’s ideas to give you inspiration.

All Sweets, All the Time
