Chocolate Fruit Dip 

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 9 oz Cocowhip

For the Charcuterie Board:

  • 8 oz pre-sliced salami (makes 3 roses)
  • crackers of choice or pretzels
  • jam of choice
  • 16 oz strawberries sliced
  • oz raspberries
  • 3 fresh mandarin oranges peeled and separated
  • ½ fresh pineapple chopped
  • oz cheddar cheese cut into cubes
  • oz parmesan cheese sliced


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and maple syrup until a chocolate syrup forms. Fold in the thawed Cocowhip and stir until well combined. Set on your charcuterie board.
  2. Make the salami roses. Using a champagne flute, fold salami over the edge of the glass and press firmly. Work your way around 5-6 times, pressing one piece at a time. Place the salami roses around your charcuterie board.
  3. Next add a small bowl of jam, pretzels, and crackers.
  4. Add your fruit in various places on your charcuterie board.
  5. Finally, add cubes and slices of cheese to go with the salami and crackers.
