50 platters that are beautiful, scrumptious, and easy-to-make: perfect for cosy nights with the family, for holiday gatherings, and for any other occasion large or small.
Take the exciting trend of artfully composed food platters and boards in an entirely sweet new direction with Kellie Hemmerly's creative and gorgeous Dessert Boards. The more than 50 easy-to-make boards in Kellie's book are kid- and family-friendly, which has not always been true of traditional charcuterie boards, with their focus on cheeses, salamis, olives, hummus, tapas, and other 'grownup' foods. But the grownups surely will love these dessert and sweets boards, too, whether the boards are served for a holiday party, a weekend visit from family or friends, or simply as a dessert for an everyday dinner.
The boards feature a stunning variety of sweet treats, from baked things like bars, cookies, shortbreads, bundt cakes, and mini pies, to fresh and colorful fruits of all kinds, to truffles, candies, s'mores, and more. The recipes include:
Chocolate Fondue Board
Movie Night Treats Board
Rose Gummy Bears Board
Ice Cream Sundaes Board
Retro Candy Board
Holiday Cookies Board
Funfetti Birthday Board
The book also includes platters that focus on healthier sweets, such as fruits, yogurts, and granola bars, perfect for breakfast, brunch, and after-school or after-work snacks. There are inventive boards for people who love to bake as well as quick-fix boards that can be built from store-bought goods - everything you need to bring smiles to your family and friends and some extra sweetness to your life.
