Christmas Tree Charcuterie Board

The Perfect Holiday Appetizer

This recipe is just perfect for the holidays.

Everyone loves a charcuterie board, and they somehow taste even better when they’re shaped in a Christmas tree!

This is a great appetizer to get the kids involved in.

You can have the little ones pick out their favorite cheese or crackers and help you assemble this quick and easy tree.

Another option is to lay everything out in a circle to look like a wreath. You just can’t go wrong with festive charcuterie boards!

This loose recipe is made up of three things: your favorite cheese, meat, and crackers. It’s that easy!

I love using a mixture of cheeses like brie, white cheddar, and pepper jack, but it’s totally up to you. I also love using summer sausage on the board as well. Check out this brand on Amazon!

Easy Christmas Tree Charcuterie Board Appetizer Ingredients

This recipe is more of an equation than a recipe.

  • 3 types of your favorite cheese, cubed
  • 1 or 2 meats, sliced
  • 2 or 3 types of crackers
  • Fresh herbs, for garnish
  • Fresh cranberries, for garnish
  • Honey or jam, for garnish


On a large sheet of parchment paper, lay out cheese, meats, and crackers, in one row at a time.

Ensure the first row is the longest, and shorten each subsequent row, until you have the shape of a tree.

Garnish with fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme for branches and cranberries for ornaments. Serve with honey and jam.


  1. So cute and festive!

  2. This is perfect for my Christmas party since we always do meat and cheese. The only problem is if mine looks as good as yours I won’t want anyone to touch it…LOL!

  3. I will definitely add this on our menu for Christmas!
