The most epic and surprisingly simple (and we mean S-I-M-P-L-E!) char-cookie-rie board idea ever - we promise! You've likely seen those chef-y charcuterie boards with savory meats, artisan cheeses, and fruits which guarantees to have our taste buds doing happy dances.
Here at Baking It Real cookie baking kits, we're taking things to the next level with a cookies and fruit char-cookie-rie board. Create this artistic masterpiece in 3 super easy steps!
Festive Fruit & Cookies Board
Add vibrant color to your holiday table by pairing beautiful, sweet fruit with holiday cookies. Is it a fruit platter or a cookie plate? Either way, get the very best of both of them with this uniquely delicious idea. We especially like the chocolately goodness paired with the fresh strawberries - our take on a chocolate-covered strawberry. This is a must try!
How do you create this beautiful masterpiece? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Choose a tray, platter, or go to new heights with a cake pedestal to display your char-cookie-rie board.
Bake your Baking It Real cookies. (See how we skipped the "search for recipes, go grocery shopping, measure ingredients, etc" and got straight to the good stuff of baking?)
Place cookies with an assortment of vibrantly colored, sweet pairings of fruit and dipping sauces.
Yummy pairings we love:
Chocolate or yogurt covered raisins
Be sure to lay parchment paper on wood trays before adding any juicy or vibrant fruits to help prevent staining.
Use small bowls to help contain smaller items like pomegranate seeds or chocolate covered raisins.
How to Design Your Char-cookie-rie board
Start assembling your tray by placing bowls well spaced from each other and directly on the tray.
Next, place your cookies in piles or in a swirly lines across the board.
Then, place fruits and nuts in the remaining open spaces. The trick to a well-balanced colorful tray is to place reds and darks first - trying not to have them next to each other - so your tray pops with color evenly and isn't too heavy on one side or the other.
Voila, and you're done!
Admittedly, we may have gone over"board" with this one but we seriously love the sweet surprise of pairing cookies with fruit. Whether it's a morning brunch, a luncheon at work, or a gift-exchange party, a fruit & cookie char-cookie-rie board provides a beautiful and yummy centerpiece - and perhaps the perfect unexpected wow-factor. Enjoy!
