What’s better than a cheese board? Or perhaps a candy board. Or wait, just a board of yummy, salty snacks?! Why, a sweet and salty board that combines the best of all of those worlds, of course! We have been seeing these crazy, elaborate boards all over Instagram and Pinterest from movie night theme to…wait for it…french fry boards. You can 100% believe we are going to dip our toes into the fries board soon.

The first rule in making any kind of sweet and salty board is variety! After that there are no rules. There’s no right or wrong way to construct and lay out food on a platter, or at least in our book. Have fun with it, and definitely taste test along the way. It’s the toughest part of the job but someone has to do it, right?
