This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ghirardelli Intense Dark. The opinions and text are all mine.
This Gourmet Chocolate Dessert Board is a decadent treat with an array of Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate, fresh fruits, and nuts.
What could be better than a Gourmet Chocolate Dessert Board after dinner?
I already love cheese boards, fruit boards, crudités boards, and dessert boards, but creating a chocolate-specific board is really the ultimate of all food boards.
My husband and I love creating special dessert boards on the weekends or for a little reset mid-week.
So I stopped by Publix to pick up Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate bars in order to create the ultimate dark chocolate board loaded with a variety of fruits and nuts.
And while normally we make this as a special treat for just the two of us, you can easily purchase a variety of Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate from your local Publix and save money in the process of creating an epic dessert board for a dinner party!
Can you imagine how excited your guests will be when they arrive at your dinner party to see this beautiful dessert display?
Or the looks of excited astonishment as you walk into your friend’s house for dinner carrying a tray loaded with their favorite fruits and Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate?
I decided to complement the deep flavors of the Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate with naturally sweet berries and nuts, but you could include marshmallows, clementine, blood oranges, pretzels, caramel, or apples.
I personally love pairing the intense, complex, and perfectly dark Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate with colorful fruit to give it a beautiful contrast in color and flavor.
You can choose your intensity level for you (and your guests) depending on your love for rich, dark chocolate. Higher cacao rates lead to a much more intense chocolate experience which is why I love Ghirardelli Intense Dark for my board.
And you have so many delicious choices including Ghirardelli Intense Dark, 72% Cacao Twilight Delight Bar, Ghirardelli Intense Dark, Sea Salt Soiree Bar, Ghirardelli Intense Dark, 92% Cacao Moonlight Mystique, and Ghirardelli Intense Dark, 86% Cacao Midnight Reverie.
Personally, my favorite is the Ghirardelli Intense Dark, Sea Salt Soiree Bar.
I love the combination of intense dark chocolate and salt, especially when paired with a single piece of fruit.
But if you plan to create one for a dinner party and aren’t sure what people may like I would suggest buying a couple of each flavor (click here to save when shopping at Publix) so that your friends can pick and choose their favorites.
And maybe they’ll discover a new favorite from your beautiful Gourmet Chocolate Dessert Board.
Not only will chocolate lovers leave dreaming about your gourmet chocolate board, but you will be happily satisfied knowing that you were able to whip this cute dessert display together in a matter of minutes.
Although you probably don’t need a recipe once you’ve seen this display in a picture, I decided to go ahead and put one together just in case.
But honestly you could probably put this beautiful dessert board together in as much time as it takes to read this recipe.
If you like to always be prepared for last-minute gatherings with friends and family, I recommend always keeping your kitchen stocked with Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate, fruit, and nuts so that you are always just 5 minutes away from the perfect dessert.Print
