How to Make a Red Velvet Dip Dessert Charcuterie Board

Make the dip

Once the cake mix has been treated, allow it to cool and place the mix in a bowl to use later.

Next, put your cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla extract in a large bowl or your mixing bowl and mix until combined using your electric hand or stand mixer. (If you’re using a stand mixer, use a paddle attachment. About 3 minutes on medium.)

Grab a large handful of pretzels and place them diagonally from the bowl. Repeat this step on the opposite side of the bowl.

Lastly, add your strawberries. Place them in the gap areas of the board. Make sure to repeat the same pattern on the opposite side of the bowl.

If you have any more little blank spaces on the board, fill them in with little pieces of chocolate.

Now that the board is full, it’s ready to be served and enjoyed.

FAQs

How should I serve the Red Velvet Marshmallow Dip Dessert Charcuterie Board?

We have suggested adding everything to a big board and serving as it is so that everyone can grab what they like. You could do mini charcuterie boards and serve them to each person with a selection of each thing and a small pot of dip. 

How do I store the Red Velvet Marshmallow Dip Dessert Charcuterie Board?

This recipe makes a lot of dip, so if you don’t use it all, it can be saved for later. To save it, place the dip in an air-tight container and place it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Allow it to come to room temperature before eating.

How many people will this realistically serve?

This will serve 22 if every person dips only once, but that isn’t likely to be the case. I would say it would be perfect for 4-6 people allowing them a bit of everything. But you could always make more and then store the dip for a few days later.
