Since the theme for this charcuterie board is Easter, I definitely wanted to add lots of favorite treats that would reflect the holiday. Here are some of my favorite sweet treats and suggestions. But feel free to add your favorite small candies as well because there is no wrong way to make a board:
The edible Easter grass was perfect for making the cutest nest for my chocolate eggs. As far as the taste of the grass – I got no clue there. I know it’s edible but I just wanted the look of grass more than anything. Although, this could get your guests talking for sure! 🙂
The butterfly crackers were the perfect addition to this appetizer tray! I tried arranging them several different ways, but my favorite turned out to be shaping them into a carrot form. The chopped celery made the perfect carrot top to complete the look!
So now let’s talk about the additional food items I added to my board that you might find on a more traditional charcuterie boards.
Additional Supplies You’ll Need For The Board
I went with two different types of cheese, but I wanted it to look more springy! So I decided to cut the cheese with flower cookie cutters to give it a more fun style. Super simple trick that adds a more personality to the board.
Speaking of flowers, I also placed a small flower here and there on the board as well. Fresh flowers compliment my theme perfectly and they’re an easy way to add more visual appeal and bright colors to the board too!
How To Make Sheep Pretzel Cookies

Supplies Needed for Sheep Pretzel Cookies
- white chocolate melting wafers (I prefer Ghirardelli)
- white nonpareils sprinkles
- dark chocolate melting wafers (Ghirardelli)

Steps For Making Sheep Pretzel Cookies
- Dip the pretzels in melted white chocolate wafers. Tap off excess chocolate a couple of times on the edge of the bowl. Set on a parchment paper lined plate and immediately cover with white nonpareil sprinkles. Place in the refrigerator to chill until the chocolate is firm – about 3 minutes.
- Remove plate from fridge. Pipe two melted dark chocolate dots on either side of the face. Then fill in top opening on the pretzel twist to form the face.
- Using a toothpick, drag an edge of one of the chocolate dots toward the face to form an ear. Repeat on the other side.
- Immediately add the candy eyes. Chill again in fridge until the chocolate is firm – about 2 minutes.
