Easy Spring Dessert Board

This is a fun and easy dessert board that you can make even if you are super busy. With a couple of homemade desserts and store-bought goodies, this board has something for everyone across all age groups.

I received some samples and have used them in creating recipes. Opinions expressed are mine alone.

Spring has sprung! It is time to gather and enjoy! Every season calls for its own festivities and it means entertaining with food. Food is the central part which brings everyone together. Sometimes our life gets a little crazy and meeting friends and family gives the good break needed. And Nairn's oat and chocolate graham crackers come in handy. They are not loaded with sugar and taste great. They are great to have with creamy dips. Our family loves these crackers and we love them with Caramel Apple Pie Dip that I shared in this Fall Charcuterie Board. The oat crackers are great to use in savory recipes like this Vegan Butternut Squash and Chestnut Kebabs.

Moving on to the board, this easy dessert board has three elements that I made at home that are amazing with Nairn's crackers, butter cookies and thin mint cookies, some chocolates and candies, and a couple of fruits to add fresh flavors. These are arranged attractively on a board. Place the dips and start arranging around, adding elements of different colors positioned strategically to please your eyes.

Meyer Lemon Cashew Fudge/Lemon Kaju Kathli 

Meyer lemon cashew fudge is an easy and vegan fudge that can be made in under 30 minutes time. This is a perfect one that vegan as well as non vegan guests would love.

Lime Cheesecake Dip 

An easy dip that can be whipped up in a few minutes and oat crackers and butter cookies are amazing one to dip into this lime cheesecake dip.

Cannoli Dip - Amazing and easy dip that pleases any crowd. We loved these with Nairn's Chocolate oat graham crackers.

For the fun part as well for kids and the kid inside everyone, added some lovely chocolates with the season's theme. Chocolates shaped into eggs, bunnies, chicks are available in countless varieties. These make life easier, adding fun, and delicious elements to the board. I have used chocolate eggs, Cadbury's chocolate eggs, Peanut butter eggs, chocolate carrots, Lemon Kit Kat, and chocolate cocoa pebble eggs.

Charcuterie boards are always fun. They can be made for any occasion following different themes. I have featured a few vegetarian boards in this blog and check these links to make these board for your events to enjoy with family and friends.

Sue of Palatable Pastime is hosting this event in our food blogger fun group. #Potluck Party is always the last Saturday of the month and we share amazing, fun, and delicious recipes. I am sharing the idea of making a simple and fun dessert board for this event.
