Christmas Tree Cheese Board

Christmas Tree Cheese Board: fun, festive, and perfect for holiday entertaining. Plus quicker and easier than you'd think to throw together!
Prep Time30 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 8


  • 3-4 cheese wedges/blocks, such as Brie, parmesan, cheddar, and blue cheese
  • assorted meats, such as salami, prosciutto, and pepperoni
  • assorted nuts, such as Marcona almonds and pistachios
  • assorted fruit, such as pomegranate, pears, citrus, and persimmons
  • assorted veggies, such as marinated artichokes, mixed olives, and pickles
  • fresh rosemary
  • crackers or a variety of your favorites


  • 1. Find some string and drape it into the shape of a triangle on a medium to large cheese board. Use the string as a guide while building the board.
    2. Working from the bottom up, fill in the tree in with the meats, nuts, fruits, and veggies, as desired. Use crackers to create the "trunk" of the tree.
    4. Fill in any empty spaces with pomegranates or olives, then add some rosemary around the edges for "branches".
    3. Serve the cheese board at room temperature with additional crackers on the side.


Slice the Cheese Cold: while the cheese is still cold, slice the hard cheeses into slices and crumble some of the softer cheese so guests have an idea what to do. 
Serve at Room Temp: room temperature is always best for a cheese board.
My Four Favorite Cheeses: For a holiday board, I use Brie, Humboldt fog goat cheese, sharp cheddar, and blue cheese.
