Celebrate your besties this February 13th with a Galentine’s Day Dessert Board. Rich chocolate, tasty nibbles, and oodles of heart-shaped goodies. The only thing sweeter are the friendships!

Galentine’s Day Dessert Board

I confess that Galentine’s Day was a completely new concept for me, but I am totally on board. I don’t know about y’all, but female relationships mean the world to me. Girlfriends, cousins, sisters, moms, and grandmothers. We’ve seen each other through some pretty amazing (and pretty tough) times. And of course, I like to show love with food, so I created this Galentine’s Day Dessert Board to treat the spectacular women in my life to some sweet holiday treats.

Using store-bought goodies, I put together this pretty declaration of love in a matter of minutes. Served with a little bubbly or a light rosé, it’s a delicious tribute to some of life’s most cherished relationships.

Berry Quickly…

Store-bought chocolate-dipped strawberries work beautifully on this board. But if you’d like to try your hand at dipping them yourself, it’s so, so easy!

Gently wash your strawberries and let them dry before starting. Melt a package of chocolate candy coating in the microwave according to the directions (about 1 and 1/2 minutes), stirring every 30 seconds. Immediately dip each strawberry halfway into dipping chocolate and lay it on a piece of parchment paper. If you want to add sprinkles, do so immediately before the candy coating cools.

Building the Board

I love when a board this pretty is this easy to assemble. It takes just minutes! First, place an empty Valentine’s chocolate box in the center of the round wood board. I used our 14-inch round walnut wood board. Fill each compartment with small candies such as jelly beans, M&Ms, conversation hearts, etc. Then surround the box with the larger cookies and treats.

Here is a list ion what I included, but feel free to go off-script!

Finally, serve with your favorite rosé wine and enjoy!
