Buttercream Board Ingredients:

  • 4 cups powdered sugarsifted
  • 1 cup unsalted butterroom temperature
  • ¼ cup heavy creamroom temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Redblack, and orange gel food coloring
  • Assorted cookies

Buttercream Board Instructions:

  1. To make the buttercream icing: Use a large mixing bowl and a hand mixer on low speed, beat butter, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt.
  2. Once combined, add powdered sugar. Once the mixer combines the ingredients, increase the speed to high and continue to mix until light and fluffy. (You may need to add an additional 1 teaspoon of heavy cream until you achieve your desired fluffiness. If the icing is too thin, gradually add 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar until you have reached your desired thickness.)
  3. Divide the icing, reserving ½ cup for black, ¼ cup for red, and 1 teaspoon for orange. The remainder will be white for the snowman—Color the icing appropriately. Fill piping bags and grab your charcuterie board or tray of choice.
  4. Next, take the white icing and design your snowman in the middle of the board. Pipe the black icing to make the eyes, nose, hat, and buttons. Finish by using the red to create a festive scarf for your snowman.
  5. Finally, add assorted cookies of your choice and dip them into this yummy buttercream board!
