Tips for Easter Candy Charcuterie Board:

  • Small Bowls – It is best to use small bowls for the candy that will roll away. They are perfect to add the small jelly beans and the M&M’s.
  • Adding to the candy board – Initially place the bowls and bigger candies. Starting with these first will help make the design of the board and you can fill in with the smaller candy.
  • Scatter the candy – Try to separate the candy into multiple piles and place them in 2 to 3 different spots. Don’t put all the same candy in the exact same spot. We like to scatter the items around the board for a more appealing look.
  • Preparing the board – The board is best assembled right before serving. You can prepare all the ingredients the night before and store them appropriately. Then easily assemble the board right before it’s ready to be enjoyed.
