This fun and festive Dessert Charcuterie Board is filled with an assortment of mini pies, whipped cream, fresh blackberries, and cranberries. This board is super simple and budget-friendly. It will be the shining star at any event, party, or family gathering. 

With the holidays right around the corner, this DIY Dessert Charcuterie Board will surely be a hit at your next party or gathering. It may look super fancy, but it’s simple and budget-friendly to put together, It would be the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas menu. Feel free to personalize this board however you choose. For my tray, Walmart saved the day with their 50 cent mini pies. Not only are they reasonable, but they are super yummy. Furthermore, if you want to pair this dessert tray with something savory, be sure to check out my beautiful Traditional Fall Charcuterie Board.

What Is A Charcuterie Board?

According to Webstraunt Store, “In the French tradition, charcuterie (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. … A charcuterie board is an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan bread, olives, fruit, and nuts, all artfully arranged on a serving board.”

However, for this board instead of filling it with meats and cheese, I have replaced it with mini pies and fruit. Same concept, but different ingredients. The best part about any charcuterie board is they are versatile and can be presented in many different unique ways.

This post was sponsored by Walmart, but all opinions remain mine.

Step By Step Process

This whole tray only costs around $15.00 at Walmart. That includes pies, whipped cream, berries, and greenery. What I love most about this charcuterie board is that everyone gets their own mini pie and you don’t have to worry about slicing individual pieces of a larger one. The work is already done for you. Have your guest grab a pie and add whipped topping and berries of choice.

I found this adorable black hammered tray at Walmart for only $10.00 along with the bowl for only $3. Then, I started placing the pies on my flavor. I did blueberry, apple, pumpkin, cherry, and pecan. Finally, I added whipped cream to the bowl and garnished it with fresh berries and sage. Walmart has a lot of different flavors for the pies, so feel free to pick your favorites to add to your board.

What Do You Add To A Dessert Charcuterie Board?

Picking what you add depends on the vibe you are going for. For this particular board, I wanted to present mini pies for the holidays in a fun way. However, if you are not wanting to use pies, there are a ton of different sweet options you could use. Below are some of my favorite dessert-style options.

  • Cookies and Frosting
  • Chocolate and Fruit
  • S’mores and Coffee
  • Chocolate Fondue Board
  • Donut Board
  • Ice Cream Sunday Board

Dessert Charcuterie Board: FAQs

What type of tray or wood board do I need?

Feel free to use wooden cutting boards or any type of trays, metal, or wood. You can find these cutting boards and trays really anywhere such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, Tj Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods. If you are wanting to keep it simple and not purchase anything new, simply slap some brown butcher paper on a table and build it on that. Clean-up will be a breeze.

How to build a charcuterie board correctly?

For me, I always like to place my dips and bowls first, then add in the larger items equally throughout the board. Finally, I add the fruit for color and greens for garnish. There is no right or wrong way to build a charcuterie board. Just focus on making it balanced throughout.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
