This Easter Candy Charcuterie Board includes many of my favorite candy. I am totally addicted to mini Robin eggs and those chocolate-covered strawberries. I have such a sweet tooth at Easter.

ingredients for candy dessert board

Directions

Step 1

If you are making chocolate-covered strawberries, melt a half cup of chocolate chips in the microwave until smooth and melted (don’t over melt or they will seize up). Dip the strawberries in and place on parchment paper to set. Once set, melt 1/4 cup pink candy wafers according to the package directions and then using a piping bag, add a few squiggly lines onto the strawberries. Allow to set completely before adding to the charcuterie board.

Step 2

Arrange some green paper confetti scraps into the bottom of your tray to act as a barrier between the food and the tray, or for a pop of festive color here and there. Add the Robin Eggs to a small ramekin bowl, and arrange at the top left area of the tray. Add the jelly beans to a slightly larger bowl, and place them towards the middle bottom of the tray. Next, add the bunny graham crackers to a slightly larger bowl, and arrange towards the top left of the tray. Finally, add the M&Ms to a small ramekin and arrange towards the bottom right of the tray.

Step 3

Arrange the Hershey’s Kisses underneath the bunny grahams bowl, flowing between the jelly eggs and M&M’s bowls. Next, arrange the vanilla wafer cookies under the Robin Eggs, flowing down on an angle, next to the jelly beans. Place the strawberry wafer cookies under the bunny grahams bowl, to the right of the Hershey’s kisses, flowing on a diagonal, ending at the top of the M&Ms bowl.

Step 4

Arrange a 4 stack of Peeps bunnies on an angle at the top between the Robin Eggs and bunny grahams. Then, add a 5 stack of Peeps chicks at the bottom, under the Hershey’s Kisses.

Step 5

Do a thin layer of mini marshmallows between the bowl and under the Peeps Bunnies in the bare middle section. Place the chocolate bunny on top of the marshmallows, and fill around the bunny with more marshmallows. Add another peep stack to the top right corner and the 4 chocolate covered strawberries bottom left between the vanilla cookies and the Peeps.

Step 6

Arrange some white chocolate covered pretzels in the bottom right corner and some Easter marshmallows in the top left corner. Fill in spots with Peep bunnies: 2 under the Easter marshmallows, 1 bottom left corner, and 1 on the right edge under the Peep chicks (above the strawberry cookie wafers). Add more Hershey’s Kisses to fill in the top middle. Place the 3 Easter egg cookies, one over each set of Hershey’s Kisses, and one over the mini marshmallows and vanilla wafers.

Step 7

Fill in the bare area at the top next to the Easter marshmallows with more pretzels. Then fill in the right side with some M&M’s by the strawberries. In the area by the strawberries, fill in gaps with mini marshmallows. Add a few more pretzels top right corner. Add more mini marshmallows to any remaining gaps. The final touch to the board is to add the decorative carrots (non-edible) to the tray. Use the images as a guide where to fill in gaps.

Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Use small bowls for the candy that will easily roll away like the jelly beans and M&M’s.
  • Add your bowl filled items first to the board and then your bigger items. Starting with these first helps you design the board more easily when filling it with the smaller candies.
  • Scattering the candies in a few places, as I did with the white chocolate pretzels and mini marshmallows will have a more appealing look than just piling them all in one spot.
  • Typically, assembling your Easter Candy Charcuterie Board right before serving is best.
  • The type of tray is up to you but be sure it will fit everything you want to include.
  • Get creative! Love peanut butter eggs or chocolate eggs? Add them to the board!
  • Substitute a white chocolate Easter bunny for a chocolate bunny.
  • You can use the traditional Easter candies or choose some of the fun new ones I’ve seen at the grocery store.
  • Marshmallow Peeps come in quite a few colors and shapes now.
  • This Easter dessert board is a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen.
