The BEST part is that the party I was supposed to go to last night was canceled due to the snow, and I had a whole Christmas Tree Cheese Board to serve my family and neighbors. Not bad, right? This is exactly my speed – a little fruit, a lot of vegetables, a little meat, and a lot of cheese. You can say I have found my happy place and it consists of Christmas Tree cheese boards. If you think assembling Christmas trees out of food is fun, this is a great idea! Not to mention it’s delicious.
What do I love? Cheese. I love cheese and crackers – without a doubt – but when it comes to assembling a cheese board/platter/plate for a holiday party, that’s when I get even more creative. Heluva Good!® is always my go-to cheese for such amazing recipes. It provides the ultimate snacking experience no matter the occasion. The flavor is mouthwatering – with taste delivered. The cheese is versatile – perfect for any occasion – but also suitable for every day. Especially if you make Christmas Tree cheese boards every day, because I’m starting to think that I should do that! Or at least some shape!
For my cheese board, I chose Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar and Colby Jack. Heluva Good! offers an assortment of flavors, including the two I mentioned above, Pepper Jack, Extra Sharp Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, White Extra Sharp Cheddar, White Sharp Cheddar, White Mild Cheddar, Muenster, and Monterey Jack. I love the variety of flavors – it’s FUN to choose.

I always buy at least two Heluva Good! blocks. In my cheese board, I wanted to make the “star” on top of the Christmas tree out of Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar, and I wanted to use Colby Jack for the “tree” part. Cheese boards are always so personal. I made mine with my family in mind. Usually I like to use strawberries, but it’s not the season for them, and raspberries were on sale. I have known people to use other vegetables for their cheese boards, but I think broccoli is perfect! Pair the cheese board with a great homemade dip, and you’re set. All of the flavors go well together.
This is one of my favorite dishes because it’s simple, delicious, versatile, and fun. Scarlet and Des helped me with the star of the tree, and with choosing the ingredients. I think blueberries or dried cranberries would also go well with it, as well as salami. You can’t go wrong. And you can know for sure the cheese is the star of the show. That’s where I put the most care.
