Nothing says “elegant” quite like a charcuterie board. And what better time than the holidays to roll out a very fancy charcuterie board to feed and impress your guests? Of course, this year with the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s probably going to be a very light holiday season with not a whole lot of gatherings happening. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a charcuterie board at home ourselves.

That said, charcuterie boards don’t just have to be standard boards full of delicious nibbles, such as cheese, crackers, cured meats, jams, and spreads. They can actually be delectable works of art. And given the different inspirations to be found on Instagram and Pinterest, charcuterie boards can actually be turned into edible houses that are representative of savory gingerbread houses. They’re the perfect snack for the season.

They’re easy enough to assemble and just as easy to enjoy. The best part is that the range of creativity is endless. If you want to try elevating your charcuterie board into edible art, check out some of our top picks for inspiration below:
