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:
Coffee Bar Board
Holiday Cookie Board
Game Day Sweets Board
Cupcake Decorating Board
Molto Dolce Board (Italian Sweets Board)
Hot Cocoa Board
Awards Night Board
Birthday Confetti Board
Valentine Sweetheart 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.
