The holiday season is in full swing, and that means you’ve probably got to plan for another friends and family get-together. This year, instead of the traditional, why not try out something new and delicious? A holiday “Board Party” will let your guests show off their creativity with a themed board with their own flair. There are many variations and endless ideas when it comes to these edible masterpieces. Not to mention, these boards can match the theme of the party or could turn into a friendly competition.
Here are just a few of our sweet or savory board ideas when planning your next party this season.
Using Spice World Ready-to-Use Minced Ginger, Garlic, and Chopped Easy Onion will not only enhance the flavor of your recipes, but they also provide numerous health benefits! Onions and ginger both improve digestion health, while garlic helps to reduce cholesterol levels. As you think through different foods for the holiday season, consider adding these ingredients for a healthy boost of flavor!
It’s no wonder charcuterie boards have increased in popularity due to their delicious ingredients and aesthetic appeal. They are great for snacking, and one may even argue they are the perfect appetizer for any meal. Traditionally, charcuterie boards consist of cheese, meats, crackers or bread, pickles, olives, and dips. However, what’s stopping you from adding a touch of creativity to make the board uniquely yours?
Here are some of our unique charcuterie additions for a “Holiday Board Party:”
This French Onion Dip pairs great with any of your favorite crackers and adds a variation of flavor to the other cheeses and meats on the board. It is a classic dip that will be a crowd favorite on the charcuterie spread, especially when elevated by Spice World Ready-to-Use Chopped Easy Onion.
A butter board is exactly what it sounds like—a board coated with butter! This is a creative way to serve a classic bread and butter appetizer and is much more appealing (and fun) than a tub or stick of butter. Butter boards can be made any way you prefer, but here is one of our favorite methods to add some flavorful flare.
Let’s be honest, what is a holiday party without something sweet? This frosting board served with cookies, doughnuts, and brownies is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth at your holiday board party. Just don’t forget the Spice World Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies!
If you’re looking for a balance between the sweet and the salty, try out this fruit board. The vibrant colors will pop on the table, and with a large variety of fruits, this board has endless options for creativity. Any variety of fruit, nuts, pretzels, and dips of your choice will make a delicious board.
How to assemble:
While planning and hosting a holiday party can bring stress, a “board party” can take cooking and cleaning off your plate. You can make a board in advance, saving time on the day of the party, and having guests participate in bringing their own themed board provides enough for everyone. Because while you enjoy each other’s company, you might as well enjoy each other’s food too!
