Heart Shaped Platter Idea
Food Blogger: Parties with a Cause
Why we chose it: Minus the candy, all of the ingredients can be found in the grocery store. There are so many reasons to love this platter: a heart-shaped board, adorable decorations like the red roses, and all of the delicious red-colored fruit that filled to capacity with no empty spaces left.
Beautiful boards like this one are creative enough to make your holiday of love special.
Crave-worthy ingredient: All of them. Fruits are healthy snacks and easily complement each other with their sweet and tangy flavors. The combination of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, apples, pears, and others combined with the fruit dip placed slightly off center makes all of the fruit together on the platter, the perfect grazing board.
Fruit and Dessert Platter
Food Blogger: Britney Breaks Bread
Why we chose it: This valentine’s charcuterie board is one for the books. This round tray of chocolates, cookies, pretzels, and fruit will impress your partner or friends with its creativity, festive colors, and variety of textures when pairing different types of food.
Also, out of all of the Valentine’s day recipes, Britney provides a robust list of ingredient suggestions to use for dips, cookies, chocolates and more
Crave-worthy ingredient: Where do we even begin? There are so many delicious accompaniments to this magnetic board, from the chocolates and fruit to the hazelnut sticks.
But what’s easily overlooked that we are absolutely obsessed with is the buttered croissant and chocolates, and there are so many sweet treats to choose from!
Cheese Board for Two
Food Blogger: Fork In The Kitchen
Why we chose it: The brie heart in the center of the board stole our hearts. Not only is it a great place for it to be the focus of the platter, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing. Plus, with fresh olives, pistachios, fruit, candies, honey, and crackers surrounding it, you’ve got a perfect mix of savory and sweet flavors.
Crave-worthy ingredient: Slices of cheese, please. Cheese can be paired with everything on this board. It’s the easiest way to nudge others to try something new and different. So whether it’s a classic brie paired with some earthy honey or the blue cheese you love, cheese is an essential ingredient to any charcuterie board.
S’mores Charcuterie Board
Food Blogger: A Classic Twist
Why we chose it: This Valentine’s Day charcuterie board is a great idea if you want to keep things nostalgic for your date night or Galentine’s day movie night.
Open a bottle of wine and pair it with this s’mores charcuterie board, overflowing with decadent sweets. Featuring milk chocolate, Hershey kisses, fruit, marshmallow, melted chocolate, and caramel dip makes this the perfect board to create your own s’mores gooey and sweet.
Crave-worthy ingredient: I am an aesthetic girl through and through, so I would pair the strawberry-flavored chocolate with marshmallow, caramel dip, and graham crackers with a drizzle of melted milk chocolate, and bam!.
But more than that, going for the s’mores option is the perfect way to end a cozy night with your partner, and let’s face it, what’s not to love about s’mores?
Food Blogger: Life Love Liz
Why we chose it: This is a crowd pleaser for all the sweet tooth lovers. Nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” quite like a Valentine’s day dessert board filled with chocolate-covered strawberries.
We are a massive fan of pink sprinkles, white and dark chocolate as this would make the special person in your life feel lots of love knowing that you spent time making them this in the kitchen.
Crave-worthy ingredient: The chocolate, of course! The recipe shows you the pink and white chocolate chips and the pink and white sprinkles so you can achieve this picture-perfect dessert board. There’s no way you can go wrong with this sweet combination.
Everything But The Sink Charcuterie Board
Food Blogger: Butter Be Ready
Why we chose it: It’s a board full of not-so-themed but fun Valentine’s day snacks, including cheese, pretzels, a fruit-filled slab of aged cheese, firm cheese, creamy cheeses, with slices of Prosciutto, Sobrasada, and more. With this board, you’ll get those with an appetite returning to this for seconds and thirds!
Crave-worthy ingredient: The meats. It’s the only one on this list with them, and the best part is how you can put as many meats on there as you like. The prosciutto, Sobrasada, and other meats on this board are deliciously savory, adding a memorable bite to your favorite snacks.
Whether you’re pairing them with the cheese, pretzels, or fruits on this board, there’s no doubt that these meats are the star of the show.
