A Valentine’s Day candy board is the sweetest way to celebrate on February 14th.
The truth is that charcuterie, cheese and candy boards are so on trend. They are popular because they are beautiful to look at, delicious and so Instagram-worthy. But most importantly, they are super easy to make, especially once you understand the process of presenting all the delicious treats.
For this sweet Valentine’s Day candy board, I used a mix of home-baked items, prepackaged cookies and my family’s favorite candies. The great thing is that you can customize your board and tailor it to your own personal preferences or needs. You can easily substitute the cookies and donuts for your favorite gluten-free baked goods. Other ideas for your candy board: mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, or any kind of chocolate covered nuts and or candies, fresh or dried fruit or any snack your kids love!
