Move over, dalgona coffee – there’s a new hot drink trend on the horizon: hot chocolate charcuterie boards. Yep, you read that right.
Inspired by traditional charcuterie boards, which usually feature a spread of meats, cheeses and crackers, hot chocolate charcuterie boards are laden with everything you need to create and enjoy a super-indulgent hot chocolate.
Think marshmallows, cookies, whipped cream, sprinkles, fudge pieces, flavoured syrups and just about any other toppings or dips you can imagine alongside your drink. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a night on the sofa with a Christmas film and some cosy pyjamas.
Many foodies and brands have taken to Instagram to post mouth-watering pictures of their own versions of the sweet treat, some of which are available to buy ready-made.
Fancy trying your hand at creating a board yourself? We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites for inspiration.

This board by @cocoatasting4you is loaded with everything you need for an ultra-rich, decadent cup of hot chocolate, with whipped cream, marshmallows and real chocolate pieces to melt into your drink.
