Dessert boards, sweet snack boards, and charcuterie are so popular and fun I thought it would be fun to put together a Christmas dessert board for the holidays.  All our treats for this board are store bought, so it’s really quick and easy to put together.  This year we’re celebrating a pink Christmas, so I added a few easy pink touches to the board too.  You could do them in pink or in the more traditional red for Christmas.

To make the Santa hat Oreo cookies, just melt some pink chocolate in the microwave.  Place the melted pink chocolate in a ziplock bag and snip off the corner to make a piping bag.  Use the pink chocolate to make a triangle Santa hat on the top of the cookie.  Let the pink chocolate harden.  Next do the same with the white chocolate and use it to make a pompom top and fur trim on the bottom of the hat.  While the white chocolate is still wet and before it hardens, dip it in the white sprinkles.

Strawberry Santa Hats

  • white powdered donuts
  • fresh strawberries
  • mini marshmallows
