What is a Candy Charcuterie Board?
A candy charcuterie board is not like your traditional charcuterie board filled with meats, cheese, crackers and such. Instead it is filled with sugary treats that goes with theme like these Valentine’s Day candy from American Licorice Company (thanks for sending the products to make).

How to Make a Valentine’s Day Candy Board
Before you get started in making a candy board, you’ll need a charcuterie board. I found this oversized round board online that’s inexpensive. If you want a different size or shape there are lots of other charcuterie boards to choose from in various styles and sizes.
To get started create a focal point of the board. We used this red heart decal to be the focus of the board.
Then you build your candy board around the focal point all the way to the edge on all sides on all sides of the board. It may take several adjustments and moving around the candy till you get it all to fit and how you want it.
