What do you put on a dessert charcuterie board for Easter?

To start, gather an assortment of your favorite Easter-themed sweets and treats. Think pastel-colored candies, chocolate eggs, marshmallows, cookies, and fresh fruits like strawberries and grapes. 

Consider incorporating themed decorations such as Easter bunnies or decorative eggs to add an extra festive touch. With a mix of textures, flavors, and colors, your Easter dessert charcuterie board will be a delightful centerpiece for any celebration.

Here are some delightful treats to consider adding to your Easter dessert charcuterie board:

Chocolate Eggs: Include an assortment of chocolate eggs in various sizes and flavors, such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate.

Pastel-colored Candies: Add a pop of Easter color with pastel-colored candies like jelly beans, malted milk eggs, Jordan almonds, and candy-coated chocolates.

Marshmallow Treats: Include fluffy marshmallows in classic shapes or Easter-themed designs. You can also add marshmallow Peeps in different colors and shapes for a playful touch.

Fresh Fruits: Incorporate fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and grapes to balance out the sweetness of the other treats. Consider arranging them in a visually appealing manner to add color and freshness to your board.

Cookies and Biscuits: Include an assortment of cookies and biscuits such as shortbread cookies, sugar cookies in Easter shapes, biscotti, and butter cookies. You can also add homemade or store-bought cookie bars and brownies for variety.

Mini Cupcakes and Cake Pops: Add mini homemade cupcakes in Easter-themed flavors like carrot cake or lemon, as well as cake pops decorated with pastel-colored frosting and sprinkles.

Dried Fruits and Nuts: Incorporate dried fruits like apricots, cranberries, and pineapple, along with an assortment of nuts such as almonds, cashews, and walnuts for a crunchy contrast to the sweet treats.

Easter-themed Treats: Get creative with Easter treats like Rice Krispie treats shaped like Easter eggs, Easter candy such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chocolate bunnies or Cadbury mini eggs, Easter-themed cake slices, hot cross buns and decorated sugar cookies featuring bunnies, chicks, and Easter eggs.

Relevant Recipes:

How should I display and serve my Easter dessert charcuterie board?

  • Choose the right board or a large serving platter. The size will depend on the quantity of treats you plan to include.
  • Place small bowls or ramekins on the board to hold items, add dimension and prevent treats from rolling or spreading.
  • Consider including a mix of store-bought treats and homemade goodies for added variety.
  • Place larger items, such as cake slices or whole cookies, first. Then, fill in the spaces with smaller treats, creating a balanced and aesthetically pleasing arrangement.
  • Add festive and Easter-themed decorative elements within the color scheme of the holiday; such as fresh flowers, ribbons in bright pastel colors, or small Easter figurines to enhance the overall presentation.
  • Place small serving utensils or toothpicks near specific treats to make it easy for guests to pick up and enjoy items without using their hands.
  • To add a personalized touch and inform guests about what’s on your own charcuterie board, consider placing small labels or signs next to them.

Can I make my Easter dessert charcuterie board ahead of time?

Yes, you can make your Easter dessert charcuterie boards ahead of time to simplify your celebration. Plan and prepare your selection of treats and sweets in advance, including homemade items, fresh fruit, and non-perishable treats.

Assemble the non-perishable items on the board a day or two before your event, cover and store it in the refrigerator, and add any perishable items just before serving to keep everything fresh and ready to enjoy.

Learn how to make a festive and fun Easter Dessert Board! Take everything out of your Easter basket onto one beautiful board with this fun idea.


  • Assorted Easter candies and/or cookies
