Making dessert grazing boards is a fun way to keep your guests happy while they wait for dinner. The boards can be made ahead of time and set out with little fuss. Plus, it’s an easy way to get kids involved in the holiday preparations without them getting bored or antsy.
If you’re hosting this holiday season, one of the most difficult parts can be coming up with a new and exciting way to feed your guests. That’s why I recommend creating grazing boards for dessert!
1) Choose the board you want to use (such as an old cutting board).
2) Cover with parchment paper or tin foil.
3) Arrange your chosen snacks in rows on the board- this will make it easier for guests to graze while mingling instead of having to take plates back and forth.
4) Cut into squares when ready to serve.
The best part? You can do all of this in advance!
Grazing boards are perfect because they give everyone their plate of sweet treats, which means no fighting over who gets the last slice of pie. Plus, it’s easy to make and clean up!
