It’s so easy to put together an adorable Valentine’s Day dessert board for family and friends! Here are my favorite products and tips for a sweet board that is sure to be a big hit.


This is completely up to you! Here is what I used:

  • Golden Oreos
  • Conversation Hearts
  • Valentine’s Day Cookies
  • Strawberries (cut into heart shapes)
  • Angel Food Cake (cut into cubes)
  • Pretzel Rods
  • Marshmallows
  • Rice Krispie Treats
  • Festive Sprinkles
  • Melting chocolate or chocolate chips (for the fondue.) I used Godiva Melting Chocolate Chips!

If you’d prefer a healthier board, there are still plenty of options! You could use:

  • More fruit, such as apples, bananas, or cherries
  • Crackers, which would be a nice blend of sweet and salty!
  • Cheese cubes
  • Graham crackers
  • Biscotti


There is no right or wrong way to set up your dessert board, but here are my favorite tips for a fun and festive tray!

  1. Cut strawberries into heart shapes. You can use a knife to cut an upside-down triangle shape from the top, or use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter.
  2. Mix up the colors. I like to ensure there are pops of colors throughout the dessert board, so I arrange the treats in a way that the colors are balanced, such as putting the red strawberries between the tan and brown sweets.
  3. If you’re adding any dishes (like the heart-shaped sprinkle bowl or fondue pot), place those where you would like first as anchors, then arrange the treats around them.
  4. Place the larger treats on before the smaller treats. The M and M’s and Candy Hearts are great to fill in any holes once you’re close to finished!
  5. Don’t overthink it! This is how I did my board, but there are so many fun ways you could fill it in. Let yourself be creative and have fun!

If you’re using a fondue pot, simply follow those directions. 


If using fondue, always be sure to supervise kiddos closely and test the fondue before they sample it to ensure it’s not too hot.
