Fresh Fruit, Veggies & Crackers

  • 2 cups carrot chips
  • 2 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 16 oz grapes color of choice
  • 12 oz crackers of choice

Meat, Cheese + Dip

  • 10 oz. meats of choice I used dry salami
  • 8 oz. block soft cheese
  • cheddar cheese cubes
  • ranch dressing


  • Large chocolate bunny
  • Peeps
  • Mini Cupcakes
  • Cadbury Chocolate Eggs


  • To a large platter or cutting board, place the nest and chocolate eggs. In the middle add the cheese. 
  • Next, add the fruits and crackers, spacing them out around the tray/cutting board
  • Fill in the missing areas with the meats and cheeses.
  • Finally finish with the Peeps, mini cupcakes, and the large chocolate bunny.


Serving Tips

  • Wait To Place The Meats: Store the meats in the fridge right before serving. If you put it out too early it can get warm and rubbery. Keeping it cool until right before eating makes it taste so much better. 
  • Don’t Forget Wine or Sparkling Cider: Wine and sparkling cider is the bow on the gift. It really ties this whole board together. The salty and savory flavors of the cheese will enhance the aroma of the wine.
  • Use Small Bowls: If you find that you have a dip or spread or item that needs to be contained, feel free to use small glass bowls to add layering different heights to your board. This is both pretty and functional. 
  • Utensils: These boards are always fun to pick at and graze with your hands, but offer small knives for spreading and cutting, as well as spoons for scooping dips and jams. Toothpicks are also great for picking up items. 
  • Sourcing ingredients: You can go to your local grocery store or specialty market to get most of these items. If you’re looking for unique or themed products, try stores like Trader Joe’s, Aldi, and even Walmart! 
  • Customizing: Depending on your event, the crowd you’re serving, and the time you’re gathering, you can make this more of a traditional charcuterie board like I have here, or make it something different! You can make an Easter candy board, an Easter dessert board, an Easter brunch charcuterie board, and more. I’ve made a dessert board before and it’s really fun! 

Storage Tips

You may have items left over that can be saved for a later time. Either wrap your board completely in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator or remove items individually and store them in separate airtight containers in the fridge. 
Any items that can be left at room temperature, place in containers and store them in your pantry (crackers, candy, etc).
