A few weeks ago I made a chocolate grazing platter for the baby shower of one of my besties.. and then this dessert grazing platter was made for the hens day of another one of my gorgeous friends! What’s better than beautiful friends and crazy delicious platters filled with chocolate, lollies and fruit (just to balance things out!).

I like to choose a range of good old favourites (such as Curly Wurlys) as well as some fun ingredients (such as the sour worms).

Colour is the key here so look for lollies and chocolates that are bright!

    What a fantastic idea!! I’d never thought of such a thing, but it’s true: why limit grazing platters to just the savoury stuff?? Both the dessert and chocolate grazing platters are fabulous ideas. Looking forward to implementing both. Thanks!

    Nice platter, we regularly have them at family functions but this is more of a sweet/chocolate/indulgent platter than a dessert one, guess it depends on your country of origin and your interpretation of dessert
