Boards should not be limited to just savory appetizers. Serve up this sweet peanut butter & chocolate charcuterie board compiled with all your favorite items.
For today’s #PBchocSat I am posting a non-recipe for a peanut butter and chocolate themed board because boards seem to be the cool thing right now and I’m all for throwing a bunch of my favorite things on a plate. I used to gather up fruit, cheese, and crackers and call it dinner in college and grad school whenever I was too tired or stressed to even order food for delivery, let alone cook anything.
You could really use any of your favorite peanut butter and chocolate items to make this board. I considered all kinds of things such as brownie brittle, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter stuffed pretzels, chocolate rice cakes, peanut butter dip, Nutella dip, fresh and dried fruit to go with the dips, peanut butter mousse, Reese’s pieces, chocolate bars, and the list goes on. I almost did it all but decided to reign it in a bit.
So what did I use? As a frequent baker I have a lot of peanut butter and chocolate flavored things on hand. I did grab a couple things from the store but most I had stocked already. For dipping and spreading I laid out some chocolate peanut butter hummus, white chocolate peanut butter, and chocolate honey. All of which could then be used on chocolate graham crackers, pretzel crisps, mini Nutter Butter cookies, mini Oreo thins, peanut butter and chocolate flavored puffs, buckeyes of course, and some peanuts for good measure/to fill in the cracks. Oh and in case you couldn’t tell, I set it up on an Ohio shaped cutting board.
Here’s hoping my favorite buckeyes, in football form, can pull off a win against Michigan State on the road today to help fuel us through the remainder of the season for another away game against Maryland and then to the last game at home against Michigan – which we will be attending!

ahhhhh GENIUS (and love the pbco!)
This is a really intriguing idea – great for parties. Definitely better than the usual boards I’ve seen. I especially like the idea of chocolate honey. Is that the honey from your family’s business? I’m giving some consideration to ordering some chocolate honey, though I have no clue how I’d use it.
It is! Winterpark honey! Off the top of my head I use it on pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, and yogurt.
Thanks for the suggestions for how to use the chocolate yogurt. I’m curious to know if you’ve tried any of the other varieties. I think the other one that intrigues me has cinnamon.
I’m not had the cinnamon one, but I have tried a lot of them. Most I just use as regular honey called for in recipes like dressing or baked goods or in my tea.
Oops! I meant chocolate honey…
