There’s a good reason that charcuterie boards have maintained their popularity at parties. They require a lot less work than other hors d’oeuvres, let you offer a huge array of options that can suit pretty much any picky eater’s palate, and you can prep them in advance, then put them out to serve. 

But maybe you don’t want to spend hours in the cheese department puzzling over manchego vs. muenster, or figuring out the perfect jam and fruit pairings for your charcuterie mix.

You’re in luck. Because there are a whole slew of companies out there who are willing to give you all the ingredients and instructions you need for a perfect cheese and charcuterie board—or even the entire board itself, gorgeously plated and ready to be unwrapped and served at your next party. 

Not only can this save you a ton of time, it can be a bit of a budget (and waste) saver, too. These charcuterie board kits come with smaller packages of pricey ingredients like nuts and candies that allow you to offer plenty of variety on your board, without having extras languishing in your pantry.
