Holiday Fun: Creating a Delicious Chocolate Board

The festive season provides the perfect opportunity to bring joy and warmth to your loved ones through your culinary creations. With a chocolate board, you can serve a range of sweet and savoury treats to friends and family at your next holiday party. Get ready to spread some holiday fun by creating a delicious chocolate board for your guests!

Decide on a Board Theme

Before shopping for chocolates, decide on a theme for the board. You could choose “Hot Chocolate Delights,” “Just Desserts,” or “Chocolate Lovers Heaven.” Having an idea for the board helps you decide on what you’ll place on it and how you’ll organize it.

Consider buying holiday chocolates to get into the season’s spirit. These chocolates can include flavours such as peppermint chocolate or fun shapes such as a yule log chocolate shell.

Consider All Chocolate Forms

Why limit yourself to only using chocolate bars when there’s a whole sweet world out there to explore? Think outside the box and include the following chocolate-covered treats:

  • Pretzels
  • Nuts
  • Biscuits

As you assemble your board, you could also include different types of chocolates, such as truffles, sea-salt caramels, and peanut butter cups. These variations in texture and flavour will add an element of surprise to your board, making it even more enticing.

Balance Your Sweets

As you prepare for some holiday fun by creating a delicious chocolate board, remember that balance is key. Include a variety of chocolates such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate. Complement these chocolates with non-chocolate products such as cheese, nuts, and fresh fruits. These contrasting flavours can enhance the taste of the chocolates and cut down on the sweetness.

Pro Tip

Fruits such as apples, strawberries, and raspberries pair wonderfully with chocolate and are perfect additions to your board. 

Go Beyond Plain Chocolate

There’s no doubt that plain chocolate tastes amazing, but that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself. Melt a chocolate bar and create a creamy fondue or buy cocoa powder and add homemade brownies to your board!

Serve Quality Chocolate

Most importantly, ensure you use top-quality chocolate. Cococo sells the finest chocolate around: couverture. Pastry chefs and other industry professionals prefer using couverture chocolate for its exquisite taste and effortless melting properties. Couverture chocolate is the perfect choice to indulge your senses, whether you savour or incorporate it into your creations.
