Super Easy Easter Candy Charcuterie Board Idea

An Easter candy charcuterie board is so easy to make and adds a colorful centerpiece to an Easter gathering. Pile up your favorite Easter candy to put together this board in just a few minutes. Choose classic candy options (like Peeps and chocolate bunnies) and leave this on your Easter table throughout the day.

I love making seasonal charcuterie boards and when I saw photos of other Easter candy charcuerie boards I was hooked! This boad is very forgiving so while I’ll share exactly what I used to put this board together, you can easily shop for your favorite Easter candy – for me, that’s jelly beans! And the best part of making this board? I had plenty of candy leftovers to snack on.

Why Make an Easter Candy Charcuterie Board?

The quick answer to this question is – why not? There are lots of reasons to make a charcuterie board for Easter (see more ideas for Easter Boards), but a candy Easter board adds another element of fun to the celebration.

  • Celebrate Easter: Easter is a time of celebration, and creating a candy charcuterie board adds a festive touch to your gathering. It’s a visually appealing way to showcase Easter-themed treats and add to the overall ambiance of the occasion.
  • Variety: Candy charcuterie boards offer a wide variety of flavors, textures, and colors, appealing to a range of tastes. You can include everything from chocolate eggs and bunnies to jelly beans, marshmallows, Peeps, and more. This variety ensures that there’s something for everyone to enjoy and can be left out for a sweet snack throughout the day or brought out for dessert.
  • Socializing: Sharing a candy charcuterie board with friends and family encourages socializing and creates opportunities for bonding over sweet treats. It’s a great conversation starter and can help break the ice at gatherings.

Ingredients for an Easter Candy Charcuterie Board

So you can truly use anything sweet with an Easter theme to make this charcuterie board. While you can shop for the individual ingredients I used, an easier method is to head to your nearest market and choose your favorite candy. I would suggest getting a variety of sizes, colors and shapes. Don’t forget to look for Easter cookies or other baked goods as these can add a fun addition to your board as well.

Here is list of the ingredients I used in case you want to recreate this exact board:

  • Chocolate Rabbits
  • Jelly Beans
  • Reeses Small Cups
  • Chocolate Kisses
  • Peeps
  • Chocolate Covered Pretzels
  • Colorful Chocolate M&Ms

Assembling an Easter Candy Charcuterie Board

Not only can you use any candy you want for this board, but assembling this candy board is so easy.

Start by putting some of the smaller candy into bowls. I found that the jelly beans tend to roll all over the place, so I put the jelly beans in a small bowl in the center of the board.

Next add the rest of the candy to your board breaking up colors, sizes and textures. If you have a statement candy (like a large chocolate bunny or egg) this should be placed on the board first.

And that’s it. It took me about 5-10 minutes to make this candy charcuterie board for Easter.

Tips for Serving a Candy Charcuterie Board for Easter

Even though making this board is incredibly easy, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Theme and Color Coordination: Choose Easter-themed candies and treats that feature pastel colors, such as light pink, blue, green, and yellow. This creates a cohesive and visually appealing presentation that aligns with the holiday spirit. Or don’t – go big the other direction with bold and colorful ingredients.
  • Balance and Variety: Include a balance of different flavors, textures, and types of candies to cater to various preferences. Mix chocolates, gummies, marshmallows, jelly beans, Peeps, and any other Easter-themed sweets you enjoy to provide a diverse selection for your guests.
  • Presentation: Arrange the candies on a large platter or board, starting with larger items in the center and filling in the gaps with smaller treats. You can use bowls, ramekins, or decorative containers to separate different types of candies and create visual interest.
  • Decorative Touches: Enhance the Easter theme with decorative touches such as small Easter eggs, fresh flowers, or Easter-themed figurines placed around the board. These embellishments add charm and whimsy to your display, making it even more festive.
  • Labeling: Consider labeling the different candies on your charcuterie board to help guests easily identify their favorites and any special treats you’ve included. You can use small chalkboard signs, place cards, or even mini chalkboard labels attached to toothpicks for this purpose. Be aware of any food allergies – especially nuts! This is probably not the best board for someone with a nut allergy.
