* But please, please, please feel free to use whatever chocolate bars/blocks you have available – the whole idea is simply to fill the entire board with a big selection of chocolates. It doesn’t matter what chocolates you choose… just pick a nice variety!

Tips For Putting Together A Chocolate Grazing Platter

  • start with the biggest chocolates first (or the ones that are going in cups/containers/bowls etc on your platter)
  • bowls/containers etc are fantastic for sectioning off parts of your platter (and for holding small chocolates!)
  • use large blocks of chocolate in the centre of the platter
  • fill the small gaps with little chunks of chocolate
  • use a variety of chocolates in different colours
  • strawberries add a colourful and fresh touch
  • move everything around until it’s sitting nicely and you have a good balance of colours/heights

    Silly question but how much would this cost and how many people would it serve ?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Trish, oh gosh it really depends on how much chocolate you use and the brands you buy! You could make it almost as cheap or as expensive as you like. From memory, I think the chocolates for this platter cost me around $50ish and served a party with around 30 people (there were also other desserts there) – and we had leftovers on the platter. Hope that helps!! xx

    Oh wow. I’m South African living in California. And I would love to make this plate with Flakes and Turkish delight and Aero. And what to we call that peanut chocolate again. Not the reeses. Oh man I’m homesick now big time!
