You can make the dessert ahead of time! I recommend arranging the dips and candy on the board, but wait to add sliced fruit or berries. 
Wash and prep the berries and fruit, but wait to add them to the board until you're ready to serve. These can be the last items added to the platter. 
When you make this ahead of time, cover it with plastic wrap or tin foil and leave it on the counter at room temperature. Then, leave the fruit in the refrigerator and add it to the platter later.
My Tips
Use different colors and different textures to make the board more visually appealing.
You can add fresh fruit to skewers for easy grabbing.
Use small bowls to keep candy from rolling off the board. I recommend using small wooden or marble bowls with tiny spoons. 
Use a variety of heights to add dimension to the board.
Be mindful of how many people you are serving. I like to have 3/4 to 1 cup or more per person.
Make goodie bags for leftovers.
