  • 8 ounces brie cheese or any similar creamy cheese
  • 8 ounces aged cheddar or any aged cheese

Choose a Variety of Fruit

  • 1 lb grapes red or green grapes
  • 3 kiwi sliced
  • 1 large orange sliced
  • 4 ounces blueberries
  • 4 ounces blackberries

Nuts, Dried Fruit + Honey

  • 4 ounces candied walnuts or candied pecans
  • 4 tbsp honey with honeycomb if possible
  • 3 ounces dried fruit strawberries, orange slices, etc.

Bread and Crackers

  • 6 ounces crackers or crusty bread


  • Choose 3-4 different types of cheese. Cut them into different shapes if needed. We like cubes, triangles, slices, etc. 
  • Wash, slice, and chop any fruit you’ll be adding to the platter.
  • Add honey, dips, and sauces into small bowls.
  • Add the different cheeses to the platter. Put the cheese in different corners of the platter. Add a cheese knife to each selection and a cheese sign so your flavors don’t get mixed.
