Elato Charcuterie Board

Elato Charcuterie Board (2)

Move over pavlova, an indulgent Elato charcuterie board is the must have for Christmas lunch! 

Designed to tempt the taste buds and provide a visual feast, the Elato Ice Cream Charcuterie Board will knock the socks off the most discerning and sophisticated guest – and delight the kids – whilst delivering a perfect Instagram photo opp for the teens. 

And it’s so easy to make – you can build it with your favourite treats. 

Using Elato Artisanal Ice Cream’s three flavours – Triple Vanilla, Cold Brew Decaf Café Latte, or the vegan Dark Chocolate Truffle – as the central ingredients, a bag of ice from the nearest servo, the board can be as creative or colourful as you like. 

Teage Ezard, award winning and passionate Australian Chef, says the Elato Ice Cream Charcuterie Board is an inspiring concept. 

“I love creativity and I love brands with style. It’s like a dance on a plate,” he says. 

“Lots of movement, lots of joyfulness and plenty of the best clean label ingredients. What a wonderful, innovative and inventive way to serve ice cream and make an impact.” 

Designed by style guru Phillip Carr for Elato Ice Cream, the Elato Charcuterie Board takes literally minutes to put together and party hosts can compile their own creations days in advance and take the boards out of the freezer straight onto the table without any fuss.

Prep Time30 minsTotal Time30 mins

 1 Bag of crushed ice
 Corinthians wafers from Woolworths
 Elato ice cream (including ice-cream balls on spoons or in edible cups from Godiva Chocolate)
 Chocolate dipped coffee beans
 Green grapes with White Chocolate Melts, coloured with Queen Rainbow Food Colours with Dollar Sweets Stars
 Fresh or frozen bananas, dipped on chocolate
 Fresh or frozen raspberries
 Fresh or frozen blueberries
 Fresh or frozen strawberries
 Jumbo marshmallows dipped in chocolate, covered with Dollar Sweets Stars
 Mini Choc Mud cupcakes or any cake or biscuit you love
 Dr. Oetker Edible Decorations Giant Stars
 100 g any type of chocolate
 2 tbsp Coconut oil
 Waffle Cones
 Pink Pattaya (Red Dragon Fruit)

1

Prepare all your items in advance so they’ll be ready and easy to simply lay on a bed of ice. Use a platter, board or tray with a little depth to it for the ice which looks great and of course, will help to keep the ice cream and accompaniments firm and appetising for longer.

2

To make the chocolate dip, combine broken chocolate pieces and coconut oil in a microwave safe cup or bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds on high, remove, and stir. Return to the microwave for 30 seconds on high, remove and stir. If not fully melted, return for 30 seconds. Dip your frozen fruit or frozen marshmallows into the melt.

3

Skewers are ideal for summer charcuterie boards. Fruit skewers in particular look great and allow for easy pick-up and dipping. Also, colour blocking is always effective on a charcuterie board and skewers offer a great way to colour block.

4

Choose a theme to please your guests – brightly coloured cake pops, snakes and frogs work a treat for kids and drunken chocolate-covered fruits for adults are sure to please.

5

Be sure to include fresh or frozen berries that aren’t chocolate-covered for those who want a healthier option and as a great complement to the ice cream.

6

Think outside the box: even salty items are a great accompaniment to ice cream. Crunchy textures work well with the softness and smoothness of ice cream. Salted pretzels, caramelised and salted nuts, chopped-up dried fruits, granola or even broken left-over biccies from the pantry are great. A simple coulis to pour on top of the ice cream is also a crowd pleaser.
