Valentine’s Day Charcuterie Items
When choosing items for your Valentine’s Day breakfast charcuterie board, a heart-shaped cookie cutter is going to be your best friend. It can make anything heart shaped – including hash browns, pancakes, or Belgian waffles.
The only thing stopping you from creating the best Valentine’s Day charcuterie board is your creativity. Here are some of my favorite ideas to get you started.
Strawberry cinnamon rolls – These cinnamon rolls are a big deal in my house and one of my favorite breakfast foods. Homemade strawberry cinnamon rolls are worth the time it takes to make them, but you can also use any store-bought cinnamon rolls and just make the strawberry frosting from scratch.
Waffles – Heart-shaped waffles or chocolate waffles are the perfect base items for this brunch board. My strawberry heart-shaped waffles can be made with a heart cookie cutter or a heart-shaped waffle maker with a little bit of extra work.
Lindzer cookies – Not just a festive treat, these cookies add contrast to the sweet decor of a valentine’s theme fun breakfast. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes.
Heart-shaped bacon – The easiest way to transform strips of bacon into hearts is to fold them right after you are done cooking the bacon and before the bacon cools.
Chocolate covered pretzels – On a Valentine’s Day brunch board full of pink treats, chocolate covered pretzels add visual contrast and are themselves festive treats.
Chocolate chips – Opt for small bowls of white chocolate chips to fill in the empty spaces on your charcuterie board. Make it sweeter by using small heart-shaped bowls.
Strawberries – Whether you opt for chocolate covered strawberries or make heart-shaped strawberries dipped in strawberry flavored frosting (the same frosting from my strawberry cinnamon rolls!), they will take your board to the next level.
Fresh Fruit – Fresh strawberries, other fresh berries such as blueberries and raspberries, and pomegranate seeds add variety and balance out a charcuterie board full of sweets.
Strawberry wafer cookies – These cookies are a fun option when looking to add additional pink treats to your breakfast board.
Nuts – Small, heart shaped bowls full of pecan chips, walnuts, or almonds are one of my favorite ways to add a savory element to a Valentine’s breakfast board.
Candy – Red heart candies, Hershey’s kisses, and candy hearts in small bowls or scattered in nooks and crannies add to the Valentine’s Day theme.
Dippers – Small bowls of melted chocolate, honey, peanut butter, maple syrup, and yogurt are some of my favorite toppings on a breakfast board.
Assembling A Valentine’s Day Breakfast Board
Making a themed charcuterie board doesn’t take a lot of work or much time. You just need to include fun ideas to make it extra special. By choosing several of my Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas, you will be off to a great start.
Start with a large wooden board or a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Charcuterie boards are available in a variety of sizes so choose a board that will fit a sampling of the items you’ve chosen.
Remember, as people eat, you can refill so don’t feel pressured to add a lot of each item right away.
After that, fill in the spaces with the rest of your items. When placing each item, put it in two or three different spots.
Avoid using a large bowl for any small items. That will throw off the visual elements of the board and take up too much space.
Once your board is full, grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. Be prepared to surprise your family or guests with this year’s Valentine’s Day breakfast! Splurge on some heart shaped mugs for an extra special touch.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
