Create a Valentine’s Day themed dessert board. This sweet charcuterie board is made almost entirely using items from Trader Joe’s!

Valentine’s Day Dessert Board
Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? One of my favorite things about the holiday is, of course, the sweets! And you know I love to assemble a beautiful charcuterie board.
I couldn’t wait to make this Valentine’s Day dessert board filled with chocolate treats and heart-themed candies! I think that there are more fun Valentine-themed sweets each year! The possibilities are endless.
Trader Joe’s Dessert Board
The best part about this Valentine’s Day dessert board is that everything on it is from Trader Joe’s, except the M&M candies.
If you remember, I used this same idea for my Christmas Cookie Dessert Board. I’m a huge fan of Trader Joe’s for their seasonal treats and goodies.
For this Valentine’s Day dessert board, I used a combination of cookies and candies for a fun and sweet presentation. Dark chocolate, pink and red gummies and some crunchy cookies are perfect for nibbling on with a cocktail by the fire.
Read on for a full shopping list and breakdown of everything on this dessert platter!
One of my favorite cocktails is my Blushing Pink Gimlet that I created with Valentine’s Day in mind.
Charcuterie Board Sweets
Cute, heart-shaped dishes are great to help contain smaller candies and treats. And they make it easier to assemble your Valentine’s Day dessert board.
Use dishes to anchor the board and add height and visual interest. I like to add the dishes (if you are using them) first and then work out from there.
This is the first time I’ve used a cake stand for my dessert board, but I love the color and thought it would be perfect for Valentine’s day! The round shape was fun to work with too.
Group the items in piles or stacks and sprinkle them around the dessert board.
I also like to use a mixture of colors, shapes and sizes to make this sweet charcuterie board interesting and fun!
And don’t forget to mix some salty items in there too. Popcorn is a great food to add to your sweet charcuterie board. I added a few Valentine’s-themed chocolate candies to the mix.
You could also add some homemade cookies to this sweet charcuterie board. And it’s a great way to personalize it and make it unique to you!
