How to Make a Charcuterie Wreath

You can’t hang this particular wreath on your door. However, you can dress it up however you like. To get started, you’ll need a cutting board or platter to arrange your “wreath” on, and some small plates for serving if you’d like to gather up several bites at a time. (Cocktail napkins will also do the trick.) Plus, all the fixin’s, of course!

Some delicious go-tos include charcuterie meats, cheeses (sliced or cubed), olives, roasted nuts, creamy spreads, crackers, veggies and herbs (for the leafy part). You can even include some sweet bites like dried fruits, chocolate-covered nuts or one-bite Christmas cookies.

Simply arrange everything in a circle, then serve it up!
