I’m obsessed with how this snowman made out of cheeses turned out. So stinkin’ cute! No pun intended. Lol! Seriously, no stinky cheeses on this board, but you could certainly add one if your cheese loving heart desires.

I used a 4-inch round brie, a 3-inch round Danish Camembert and a 2-inch round Chèvre spreadable goat cheese to create the snowman shape in the center of the board.

For the snowman’s hat, I used a Ritz snowflake cracker with 8 red beet crackers from Trader Joe’s stacked on top of it. For the eyes, mouth and buttons, I used pomegranate seeds and for the nose, I used a baby carrot.

For the scarf around the snowman’s “neck”, I twisted two salami sticks together and laid it over the space where the top two cheeses connect, pressing the ends behind the snowman’s “neck”. I also used two salami sticks for the arms and pressed them into the sides of the 3-inch round cheese in the center, letting them stick out and kind of up to look like arms.

I used my 20-inch round Mango Wood Board from Sur La Table to make this board.

For the snacks around the snowman, I decided to use all red, green and light colored foods to keep it seasonal yet still scrumptious.

Red foods: raspberries, red grapes, salami, pepperoni, red apple slices, dried cranberries, sun-dried tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, beet crackers and some pepper jelly in a little white serving bowl.

Green foods: green apple slices, snap peas, green olives, green pear slices, dried salted edamame, green grapes and cornichons.

Lighter colored foods: Ritz snowflake crackers, cracker cut Gouda cheese slices, coconut cashews, macadamia nuts, Horizon star shaped cheese slices and a little honey in a white serving bowl.

Of course, like all of my snack boards, feel free to use whatever snacks you have on hand or that you and your family enjoy most.

Instructions

  1. I used a 20-inch round wood board to create this snack board that will feed at least 10 people.
  2. I used a 4-inch round brie, a 3-inch round Danish Camembert and a 2-inch round Chèvre spreadable goat cheese to create the snowman shape in the center of the board.
  3. For the snowman’s hat, I used a Ritz snowflake cracker with 8 red beet crackers from Trader Joe’s stacked on top of it. I waited to decorate the rest of the snowman until after I had arranged all of the snacks around it.
  4. Arrange the red, green and light colored snacks around the snowman so the colors are spread aesthetically across the board,
  5. Red foods: raspberries, red grapes, salami, pepperoni, red apple slices, dried cranberries, sun-dried tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, beet crackers and some pepper jelly in a little white serving bowl.
  6. Green foods: green apple slices, snap peas, green olives, green pear slices, dried salted edamame, green grapes and cornichons.
  7. Light colored foods: Ritz snowflake crackers, cracker cut Gouda cheese slices, coconut cashews, macadamia nuts, Horizon star shaped cheese slices and some honey in a little white serving bowl.
  8. For the eyes, mouth and buttons on the snowman, I used pomegranate seeds and for the nose, I used a baby carrot.
  9. For the scarf around the snowman’s “neck”, I twisted two salami sticks together and laid it over the space where the top two round cheeses connect, pressing the ends behind the snowman’s “neck”. I also used two salami sticks for the arms and pressed them into the sides of the 3-inch round cheese in the center, letting them stick out and kind of up to look like arms.
  10. Of course, like all of my snack boards, feel free to use whatever snacks you have on hand or that you and your loved ones will enjoy most.
