Make sure to leave a decent amount of space around the edges of the board. About a half inch or more.

Leave extra space toward the handle. So, it will be easy to transfer the board if needed.

What to Serve/Pair with Your Frosting Board 

Appetizer or Dessert

This frosting board will complement any table setting. With a fun assortment of sweet little snacks, your guests' mouths will water for more.

Drinks

For a more traditional twist, serve with champagne or sparkling wine. A hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate can help offset the amount of sugar on this board.

Popular Substitutions & Additions

As this board can be completely customized to your liking, aim for variety.

There are no restrictions on what you can post on this board. Perhaps you could base your board on a particular theme or color scheme.

Also, it is recommended to use a knife to chop the butterscotch chips to have different sizes for added texture.

However, if you want, the butterscotch chips don’t have to be chopped, leaving them whole will have the same taste and cool frosting board look.

All the snacks that surround the board are also optional and can be switched out for something of your choosing.

For a little extra flair, try adding the following:

  • fresh fruits and vegetables
  • mixed nuts
  • something salty to balance out the sweetness
  • pre-packaged/homemade desserts

To make for easy cleanup, you can put parchment paper on your board before adding your frosting.

Also, the owl cookies were made using a standard cut-out cookie recipe, and this recipe is for one board that can be 12 to 16 servings depending on the amount you scrape off with your board.
