Easter Charcuterie Boards May Be The Next Social Media Trend

Holiday-themed charcuterie boards are every appetizer lover's favorite way to celebrate a special occasion. From red and green Christmas charcuterie boards to marshmallow-filled hot cocoa charcuterie boards for the entire winter season, these festive platters are both shareable and eye-catching. Those for Easter are no exception. Last year, for example, lifestyle blogger Susie Robb posted a video documenting her assembly of a very vibrant Easter-style charcuterie arrangement, featuring a bunny-shaped board decked out with Peeps, pastel-colored veggie straws, candy eggs, and a variety of other bites.

It looks like the rest of the internet has caught on to the trend. Judging from the fact that #eastercharcuterie has nearly 64,000 views on TikTok and 4,000 posts on Instagram, creative arrangements of jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, and other Easter treats could be the next big thing in the realm of springtime entertaining. Here's a bit of inspiration if you're looking to get in on the highly adaptable recipe.

How social media does Easter charcuterie spreads

Taste of Home rounded up a list of creative Instagram users showing off their interpretations of Easter-themed charcuterie boards: Kayla Camera Eats loaded up her tray with blue bunny Peeps, rabbit shortbread cookies, and a whole lot of pastel candies. Ain't Too Proud To Meg found a way to balance sweet and savory items. Instead of going all out with candy, she opted for a selection of mainly cheeses, fruits, and olives in a spring-themed color scheme.

Over on TikTok, one charcuterie specialist used a colorful plate as her starting point, layering it with edible grass, cheese cut into the shape of rabbits and carrots, and macarons. Another TikToker couldn't choose which style of Easter charcuterie board they liked best, so they created a video shuffling through some of their favorites as inspiration. These ranged from vegetable-forward crudite spreads (arranged in the shape of a bunny head) to a cookie-heavy dessert spread with muted pinks and beiges. With this much inspiration on social media, don't be surprised if you inadvertently imbue your next meat and cheese platter with an Easter flair.
