How to Make a Santa Sweets Board

  • Evenly spread the frosting onto a round plate with a lip around the edge. Place the plate in the center of the board. 
  • Press 2 large blackberries for Santa’s eyes, a raspberry for the nose, and 4 raspberries for the smile onto the frosting. 
  • Arrange the strawberries, starting from the top of the plate up to the top-right corner of the board to look like Santa’s hat. Place a regular marshmallow at the very top of the hat.
  • Add a line of 5 regular marshmallows to the top edge of the plate to complete Santa’s hat. 
  • Arrange the remaining regular marshmallows with mini marshmallows on top for Santa’s beard, mustache, and eyebrows, leaving space at the bottom of the board for the belt.
  • Place the remaining blackberries along the bottom of the board with two raspberries in the center to look like Santa’s belt.
  • Divide the remaining raspberries and place them on either side of Santa’s marshmallow beard, filling in from the blackberries up to a third of the board. 
  • Place 4 gingerbread people cookies on either side of Santa’s face, just above the raspberries.
  • Divide the mini tree cookies and arrange half on one side of Santa’s hat and half of the other side, just above the Gingerbread people cookies.
  • Fill in the top third of the board, around Santa’s hat, with the green grapes.
  • Ho! Ho! Enjoy!
