You can make this charcuterie board right on a table or a large cutting board, or you can make a small version on this Christmas tree cutting board.

Christmas Charcuterie Board Ingredients

To make this savory Christmas cheese spread, you will need the following:

  • Cheese: Brie, medium cheddar, cranberry cheddar, aged sharp cheddar, stilton blue cheese.
  • Fruit: Grapes, pomegranate, persimmon, strawberries, blueberries, apples, cherry tomatoes.
  • Salty snacks: Almonds, pretzels, crackers.
  • Garnishes: Fresh rosemary, dark chocolate, and candy canes.

Exact quantities are up to you! I love making cheese boards because they are so versatile.

If you can’t find the exact cheeses I used, just go the deli section of your grocery store and see what special cheeses they have.

How to Make a Christmas Charcuterie Board

Making a holiday charcuterie board is so easy. All you have to do is make rows with your foods, with each row getting a little longer until a tree shape (triangle) is formed. 

Use a square piece of chocolate as the tree trunk. Stick little sprigs of rosemary in between to look like pine needles. 

You do not have to make a Christmas tree shape. If you use a round or rectangle design, start with placing the large items like the cheese and pomegranate. They add the smaller items around those items.

Don’t forget to serve with a cheese board knife set

How to Make a Star Tree Topper for this Cheese Board

You will need 6 grapes, 1 blueberry, and 3 toothpicks. Take each toothpick and add a grape on each end, leaving the middle of the toothpick exposed. Lay the toothpicks on top of each other so the grapes form the points of the star. Next, lay a blueberry on top of the toothpicks.
