How to make this Easy Christmas Tree Food Board

For this Christmas wreath charcuterie board, start forming the base of the “Christmas tree” with chocolate sprinkles. You can perfectly get this step done only with your hands, but if you find it difficult you can take a mold of the height and width of the tree, fill it with chocolate sprinkles and then remove it.

Once you have the tree trunk, start with the upper part. The first two rows are grapes and in between you will place some feta cheese square pieces. The next two rows will be blueberries and the last ones, grapes with feta cheese in between again.

Mind that you won’t put feta cheese in the blueberries layer. Also, the higher you get in the tree, the less fruit you will put, so the “Christmas tree” loses width.

The final upper rows will be a pyramid of three raspberries and the macadamia nuts forming a holy cross at the top.
