Here’s what I love about this post today, How to Make a GIANT Chocolate Cheese Board:

  1. Since hosting a party is all about getting to know others better, why not serve something that will generate good conversation the minute your guests walk through the door?
  2. Have a large Giant Chocolate Cheese Board ready, with your favorite drinks. THIS will get the party started! (This giant board is from Pier 1.)
  3. Who would guess that two wildly different tastes could come together to create such a fabulous flavor combination? Chocolate and cheese are BIG winners!
  4. It’s okay to make this board ahead (believe me, this size of board takes time to assemble), and we all know that cheese tastes best at room temperature anyway!
  5. Pop this Baked Cherries Pecan Brie recipe in the oven the minute your guests walk through the door. It only takes 10 minutes to bake, enough time to serve your guests their drinks!
  6. Place the brie back in the center of the board once cooked, and SERVE! Yes, brie is DELISH with angel food cake!

Skip the crackers and bread and meats, and just make it simply sweet for Valentine’s Day!

Oh, and the leftovers? People ask me all the time if can you freeze cheese? Especially if you have a lot of leftover cheese from a board this size.

I say don’t freeze the cheese. Freezing cheese compromises the texture and will be super crumbly. Unless you’re grating it or using for a dish like enchiladas or mac and cheese, for gourmet purposes, never freeze cheese.

Just eat it, until it’s gone. (We love cheese in our home so much, end of story).

Enjoy Friends, and Happy Dipping!
