Summer S’mores Charcuterie Board Ideas
Its that time of year. Summer is in full swing here at our house. That means a lot of sleeping in, working in the yard and generally just trying to enjoy all of our hard work. With the warmer weather, comes a lot of time spent outside. One thing we love to do is have cookouts in our backyard. And of course, s’mores are always a big part of that. I decided it was so much easier to create a s’mores dessert board with tons of options, than to throw a couple bags of stuff out and see what sticks.
Today, I am going to show you how to make the ultimate s’mores charcuterie that is perfect for the summer. The best part is that everyone can pick and choose what the want and it takes little effort to do it. Its the perfect way to entertain for a large group or a small family get together. it is such a fun idea.
Hey friends, I am excited to share this post with you today! I am joining up once again with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you our favorite s’more ideas! I want to share with you my s’mores charcuterie ideas.
Creating a s’mores board is a great idea for if you are entertaining a group, or if you are simply having a family night. I find it is a lot of fun to create these s’mores bars, and they end up being so much more than a source for making s’mores.
I love to add tons of stuff to my s’mores bar, making it the ultimate place to snack and create unique s’mores you might not have otherwise. Each person can make their own own s’mores creation.
How to create a successful and fun s’mores charcuterie board:
First you need to come up with some s’mores ingredients that you want to add to your s’mores bar. I have a couple different groups of ideas
- Graham crackers/ritz crackers/ rice krispie treats and other types of ingredients that you can use as the top and bottom of your smores.
- Fresh fruit- I love adding fresh strawberries, pineapple and bananas to my s’mores bar. You could also add peaches and raspberries when they are in season.
- Fillings- of course you need marshmallows ( mini marshmallows are fun too) but I also like to add some other sauces/butters and even marshmallow fluff or chocolate sauce to give the s’mores more umph. I like adding Reese’s peanut butter cups and other candy bars as well!
- I add things like Nutella, peanut butter, cookie butter, and cream cheese and various types of chocolate
- Fill in the spots with small stuff like chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts
So thats just a quick idea of what you can use to make the ultimate s’mores charcuterie bar.
I love a s’mores bar like this when I am entertaining. It makes it easy for guests and friends to create s’mores they never would have. They can experiment with all the different ingredients and make some pretty tasty s’mores or simply make traditional s’mores.
I like to have a combination of sweet and salty ingredients to give a balance to the s’mores bar. Using peanut butter on my s’mores is what I prefer, because I think a traditional s’more is too sweet.
I started with a large cutting board. The first thing I did was add a large pile of marshmallows. Lets face it, there’s nothing better than a roasted marshmallow.
I added three different small bowls with peanut butter, Nutella, and cookie butter.
I arranged my cookies, Ritz crackers, and graham crackers around the cutting board in different areas.
Then add slices fruits in a couple different spots making sure they did not come into contact with the crackers and cookies, so that they would not get soggy. I also made sure the fruits weren’t overly juicy so they didn’t make a mess.
I then sprinkles chocolate Hershey bars, nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut around the cutting board, filling in the empty spots.
The s’mores options are endless when you create a s’mores charcuterie board! I love that everyone has their favorite toppings to choose from.
I make sure to lay out some plates and the roasting sticks so everything is handy. You can also use bamboo skewers depending on how large your fire pit is. If you are using fire bowls skewers will be perfect!
Creating a s’mores bar is such a simple and easy way to make entertaining easy.
The yummy sauces really help to add flavor and structure to a s’more. I have never loves a traditional s’more, but I love adding peanut butter or Nutella to one. I always has beef with the fact that bars of chocolate did not melt. But I wanted to add that option because I know some people do like it.
The idea is to create a s’mores bar that everyone could enjoy.
This s’mores bar gives you so many options and is so fun to share with family and friends!
And if they don’t want to add fruit to their s’mores, they can snack on them too! Its a great “charcuterie s’more board idea”.
