Valentine’s Day Snack Board For Two
There’s a snack board for every occasion.
Including Valentine’s Day!
This snack board (or grazing board) is perfectly suited for Valentine’s Day, featuring a variety of red and pink-hued eats.
It’s also perfectly suited for two people – but can easily be modified to feed more.
And most importantly: This is a cheap Valentine’s Day idea that anyone can make!
Before You Get Started
There are many, many options for creating a Valentine’s Day snack board. But there are two things you’ll want to keep in mind to make a great board:
- Include both savory and sweet treats
- Include red and pink foods
Pick a pretty tray or appetizer platter and you’re ready to go.
What Goes On A Valentine’s Snack Board?
Here’s what I included on mine:
- Beet crackers: Beet crackers are beautifully red-hued and quite neutral in flavor. I purchased mine at Trader Joe’s but they are available in most grocery stores.
- Spanish chorizo: While any type of sausage/salami will work, I like the color (and flavor!) of Spanish chorizo for this particular snack board.
- Cheese: Pink cheese for Valentine’s Day may be hard to find, but to keep the theme going look for a cheese that contains cranberries, or even a cheese with a red wax coating. (I included smoked gouda on my board.)
- Strawberries or other red fruit: Strawberries are synonymous with Valentine’s Day – consider including chocolate-covered strawberries. Otherwise, consider including cherries, raspberries or pomegranate arils.
- Candied popcorn: I found a festive bag of red, pink, and white popcorn at Home Goods. You can also make your own colored popcorn.
- Heart-shaped foods: You can find heart-shaped chocolates, candies, gummies and other foods in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day.
- Other red and pink foods: Beet hummus, radishes, red bell pepper slices, dragon fruit slices, red jam, pink macarons, and colored candy are all good options.
- Drinks: Red or white wine or a pink or red cocktail are good alcoholic options. Non-alcoholic options include sparkling grape juice, kombucha, fruit juice or sparkling water.
Use what you already have! Shop your fridge and pantry to find foods or drinks appropriate for this snack board.
