Most of us love a good charcuterie board. It’s hard not to enjoy an assorted mix of meats, cheeses, nuts, crackers, and fruit. They’re a staple of parties and home entertaining for a reason.

In recent years, different, non-traditional types of charcuterie boards have become more popular. Recipes for chocolate, cream cheese, and even baked potato charcuterie board recipes are out there, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Pretty much any snack food is fair game.

You might’ve seen TikTok’s butter charcuterie board trend that went viral not long ago. Now there’s a new, sweeter version of this unique charcuterie board making the rounds– peanut butter boards.

Like butter boards, peanut butter boards are the perfect blend of versatile and easy to make. All you have to do is spread your favorite peanut butter onto your charcuterie board as your base and sprinkle your choice of toppings over top. Then you scoop it up with slices of bread, crackers, apple slices, pretzels, or cookies, and enjoy!

This is the perfect charcuterie board for your parties-- no matter what type of charcuterie you're throwing together.

There’s lots of different ways to design a peanut butter charcuterie board. You can use chunky or smooth peanut butter, or even another type of nut butters if you’re more of, say, an almond butter person. The theme can be chocolate and peanut butter, PB&J, fluffernutter, banana bread, peanut brittle– the possibilities are nearly endless.

Best of all, peanut butter boards are extremely easy to make vegetarian and vegan-friendly, unlike some other charcuterie boards. Creator @wellnesspetfood even has a dog-friendly version on their channel so that literally the entire family can enjoy one together.
