Place any bowls first. Then, place any larger candy (such as the large chocolate bunny and the lollipops around the edges). This sets your foundation. From there, you will want to arrange your items in descending order focusing on next heaviest or large items. The items should get gradually smaller and fill in the gaps.
Create Movement on the Board
You want to utilize movement to create a beautiful board. Experiment with placing your bowls off-center in a variety of places on the board. When placing the foods, you can create a combination of wavy patterns or more uniform placements. Don’t be afraid to play.
Contrast your Colors
When placing your foods, contrast your colors indifferent areas of the board. For example, if you have pink candy, you might place them near blue or purple candy instead of near the same color. This creates visual excitement.
Vary your Sizes
Play around with placing larger items next to smaller items. You can also experiment with different sizes of Easter candy.
Depending on your preferences, it is always great to have a variety of flavors on the plate. Use different chocolates, gummies, lollipops, marshmallow peeps etc. This variety is part of the fun of these Easter candy charcuterie boards.
Amounts: The amounts of each item will depend on the size of your board and your taste preferences. Don't be afraid to grab a few extras so you have a full and bountiful Easter charcuterie board. Leftovers are always great!Other Easter Candy Charcuterie Board Ideas:
