The viral social media entertaining trend, the butter board, is adapted for both those with a sweet tooth and cheese lovers. It’s a simple concept that is as versatile as your food combo imagination. Choose a non-porous wooden or bamboo board to suit the size of your crowd (or make a couple of smaller boards.) Choose toppings with a variety of colours and shapes for visual appeal. Scoops can go beyond the baguette but need to be sturdy enough for dipping.

S’mores Inspired Board:

Base: Makes 2 small boards

  • 1 jar (213 g) Marshmallow Fluff spread
  • 1 small jar (454 g) chocolate hazelnut spread

Note: Keep at room temperature for smooth scooping
Evenly spread the marshmallow topping into an interesting shape on the board, followed by the chocolate hazelnut spread. When ready to serve, top with a colourful mix of ingredients below or choose your own! Serve with a mix of scoopers.
