How Do I Make a Christmas Charcuterie?

This amazing Mickey charcuterie board features a variety of Disney-inspired snacks, making it a fun appetizer idea for all the kids at your Christmas party. To make your own Christmas charcuterie with Mickey Mouse decorations, just follow these easy instructions.

Step One: Make the Mickey Mouse Brie

The Mickey Mouse Santa Brie cheese will be the centerpiece of your holiday snack board. To turn your Brie into a cute Mickey, start by coloring the outer coating of your eight-ounce Brie with the black edible marker. Then, draw a Mickey face on the larger 20 ounce Brie with the marker, making sure to color in the face outline, nose, and eyes. Place the Mickey face in the center of your serving board, then place the two eight ounce Brie rounds tightly against the face to form the ears.

Step Two: Prepare the Mickey Salami and Pepperoni

Next, put together your Mickey Mouse salami and pepperoni. Start by placing one slice of pepperoni on a flat surface, then top it with a second slice covering the bottom half the first slice. Repeat with four more slices of pepperoni. Roll up the meat into large circle and place the roll in a small glass. To make the ears, roll up one piece of pepperoni into a small circle. Use toothpicks to attach the ears to the larger pepperoni roll. Repeat the process with salami slices and arrange each Mickey head on the board above the Brie Mickey, leaving room for the mozzarella and tomato Santa hat.

Step Three: Make the Santa Hat

After adding the Mickey Brie to the board, create a Santa hat by arranging a layer of mini mozzarella cheese pieces around the top of Mickey’s face. Then, create the top of the Santa hat with the baby tomatoes and finish with a poof on top using the remaining mini mozzarella.

Step Four: Arrange the Remaining Ingredients on the Board

Once you have all your Mickey Mouse elements placed on the board, you can start adding the rest of your charcuterie ingredients to the platter. First, place some small ramekins filled with jam on the board. Then, arrange the cheese cubes, fruit, naan dippers, and broccoli around the board, along with the remaining folded meat slices. After adding the main components, you can fill in empty spaces on the board with the olives.

What Should Be on a Christmas Charcuterie?

The best part about preparing this no bake Christmas appetizer is that you can personalize it to include some of your favorite snacks! Once you have your Mickey Mouse Brie, salami, and pepperoni on your snack board, you can use the rest of the space on the platter to include a variety of different snacks.

Charcuterie Board Options

  • Cheese. Use a combination of cheese cubes (like cheddar, pepper jack, and Colby jack), cheese crumbles (like feta, goat cheese, or bleu cheese) and cheese rounds (like Brie, Babybel, and mozzarella) to create a visually interesting display on your cheese board.
  • Cured meats. The fun thing about sliced meats is that you can arrange them in different ways, like creating cute Mickey heads or folding the slices to create ruffles. 
  • Vegetables. Use a variety of different veggies to add some holiday color to your board, including bite-sized tomatoes, chopped broccoli, or cauliflower florets.
  • Fresh herbs. Add some fresh greenery to your board with the help of some herbs, like basil leaves, rosemary sprigs, sage leaves, oregano branches, or mint leaves.
  • Crunchy snacks. Give your party guests even more to snack on by sprinkling some nuts around your charcuterie board or mixing in other crunchy snacks, like crackers or breadsticks.
  • Fruit. Add a little bit of sweetness to your snack board with the help of bite-sized fruits like berries or dried fruit pieces, like apricots, dried cranberries, or banana slices.
  • Jams and dips. Mix some sauces and dips into your snack board with the help of small bowls or ramekins. Add jams, dips, or soft cheeses by placing them into mini bowls on top of the board.
  • Sweets. Give your guests some sweet treats to enjoy on your Christmas board by adding a few cookies and candies to the display along with your salty snacks.
