We love this Valentine’s Day dessert board from our food contributor, CatwithaK Cooks, and think it makes for both a sweet activity and family-friendly snack. Not only is it colorful and festive, it’s easy to use it as a template and go with any ingredients you have—that your kids will eat.
Valentine’s Day Dessert Board
12 vanilla meringues
2-3 cups yogurt covered pretzels
2-3 cups popcorn
1-2 cups vanilla wafers
2 cups mini marshmallows
1⁄2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup red licorice
1-2 cups mixed berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries) For garnish – roses, flowers, or fresh mint
- Arrange the meringues in a “lazy snake” diagonally across the long side of the board.
- Fill in the rest of the space with loose piles of the ingredients, balancing out the weight visually as you go.
- Don’t be afraid to pile the sections high, or have it look a bit messy. It adds to the fun. Enjoy!
