YumEarth Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board


  1. Choose your board. You can use a serving tray, cutting board, or even just a large dish.

  2. Choose your ingredients. Start with a hot chocolate mix (I love Equal Exchange Organic Dark Hot Chocolate Mix) and a plant based milk (I use soy) and design from there. My favorites are listed above - YumEarth Holiday Organic Candy Canes, Dandies Vegan Marshmallows (Large and/or Minis), Vegan Whipped Cream, Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips, Emmy’s Organics Cookies, Made Good Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cinnamon Sticks and Sprinkles, but you can get creative here with your favorites.

  3. Style. Place your bowls. Smaller items and those that require a spoon to scoop up should be put in bowls. Start with your hot chocolate mix (and include a tablespoon for easy measuring), mini chocolate chips and Choco Yums. Add in your other toppings directly onto the board, filling in the spaces between the bowls.

  4. Enjoy! Scoop your mix into your mugs, mix with plant based milk or water, heat up, and top with your favorite toppings!

Letting a YumEarth Holiday Organic Candy Cane dissolve into my hot chocolate (voila, peppermint hot chocolate!) along with some mini marshmallows and whipped cream is my favorite way to enjoy a hot chocolate this season.
