How to make charcuterie cones

Charcuterie cones are a new food trend - adorable hand-held cones filled that look like little bouquets, and the perfect way to enjoy your typical grazing board ingredients without touching the same ingredients as everyone else!

If you own a mobile device and spend any time of social media you've seen charcuterie cones (aka charcuterie cups or the corona cone)

Last year my individual charcuterie boards became popular and I've been making them ever since. But, instead of serving individual boards, these are served in individual servings - typically paper cones. And are a great way to serve yummy food in an adorable way.

What to include in charcuterie cones:

Tools you need to make charcuterie cones:

  • Paper cones - my favorites are linked below
  • Bamboo stick for giving height to short items - like olives, pickles, fruit
  • Something to help cones stand up, like a cone holder or mason jar - my favorites are linked below!

How to assemble a charcuterie cone for the best visual appeal:

Start by using some pretty paper to make a cone. Simply folding parchment paper works just fine if you don't have a premade cone option.

Next, add your tallest items like tall crackers, breadsticks, biscotti, or bread.

Add hard cheeses in various shapes and sizes. Cheese that's too soft will dampen your cone.

Add seasonal fresh fruit, vegetable, or pickled food of choice. Use skewers to add height if needed, so they don't get lost in the cone.

Add in your cured meat of choice. A salami rose would be a beautiful addition. In this cone, I added summer sausage for the winter season.
