  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: serves 6-8 1x


  • 8 oz. White Cheddar Cheese, cubed
  • 8 oz. Yellow Cheddar Cheese, cubed
  • 8 oz. Prosciutto or Salami (or a mix of the two!)
  • 8 oz. Olives (Black or Green)
  • 8 oz. Grapes (Red or Green)
  • 1/4 Cup Almonds
  • Cherry Tomatoes or Cranberries (optional for garnish)
  • 5 Sprigs Rosemary (optional for garnish)



  1. Beginning with the bottom layer of the tree by adding the olives in a large, flat trapezoid shape (or to the bottom quarter of your Christmas tree board).
  2. Next, add the prosciutto in a slightly smaller trapezoid. The key to making this cheese board look great is to make it look abundant– don’t be afraid to stack and fold the prosciutto.
  3. Next, add the yellow cheddar cubes in another large (but slightly smaller than the last) trapezoid. Now add the white cheddar cubes in a slightly smaller trapezoid on top of the yellow cheddar.
  4. Then finish the top of the tree with a small triangle of grapes.
  5. Cut a slice of cheddar cheese (white or yellow) into a star shape and place it at the top of the tree.
  6. Place the tomatoes or cranberries throughout the tree to resemble ornaments.
  7. Next, place a small rectangle of almonds at the bottom of the tree to resemble the tree trunk.
  8. Finally, Garnish with 1-inch long pieces of rosemary to really enhance the “tree” look.
  9. (Optional) Add a bow at the top of the tree for a festive decorative look
  10. Serve immediately alongside crackers or baguette, if desired.
