This dessert board is so easy to put together and can be completed using any items you’d like! I added New Year’s Eve accents, but you can easily swap them out for any occasion.


  • Pretzel rods (you can dip them in white melting chocolate and gold/silver sprinkles)
  • Premade brownie bites
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Gold Color-It Candy
  • Gold rock candy
  • Oreos
  • Popcorn
  • Cheeses
  • Ghirardelli Chocolate Caramels
  • Chocolate-covered pretzels
  • Chocolate-covered white snowflakes
  • Chocolate stars (from Trader Joe’s)
  • Marshmallows
  • Brie cheese or mini cake for center clock (if you use a cake, get white frosting)
  • Black icing (to make clock and tuxedo accents)


  • First, start with a serving tray. I prefer this circular wooden tray from Target because it has a bit of a rim to keep the items from spilling off the edge.
  • If using a mini cake, follow instructions on box to bake. (For mini cake baking pans, you can use a small spring-form pan, silicone mold, or round cookie cutter.)
  • Using black icing, add clock numbers on a circular piece of brie cheese or a mini cake and set aside so it doesn’t get smudged. I loved the look of Roman Numerals for a vintage clock look!
  • Also with the black icing, add tuxedo accents to brie triangle wedges and set aside. I did a simple bowtie with three buttons below it.
  • Place an upside-down bowl in the center of the board to hold the place of the clock cake/cheese.
  • Fill in the board as desired with treats. Try to separate by color so they don’t blend together.
  • Place cake/cheese clock in center of the board and add in brie tuxedo accents.
  • Decorate with cupcake toppers, sprinkles, etc.


For a healthier option, swap out the desserts for fruits, cheese, or veggies!
