Butter boards are the new charcuterie boards according to TikTik – and fair enough

butter boards

Another day, another social media food trend we are itching to try.

Since TikTok’s inception, the food section of the app has pretty much been our go-to for trendy recipes that just have to be tried to be believed (hello whipped coffee and feta pasta!).

And this latest one is no different.

Say hello to butter boards – like a charcuterie board, but, you know, with butter.

Butter Boards have taken over TikTok due to recipe creator Justine Doiron, aka @justine_ snacks. In a TikTok video from earlier this month, Justine explained that she “wants to make butter boards the next charcuterie boards” as she showcases what the appetizer looks like. Justine explains that the concept came from chef Joshua McFadden.

In her now-viral video, Justine goes into a bit more detail, and kicks things off by “swirling softened unsalted butter” onto a wooden snack tray board.

Next, she adds a “generous amount of lemon zest and sea salt” to the butter – YUM. And then, she adds some fig preserve dollops all over the butter, fresh slices of figs, hot drizzles of honey, and crushed walnuts for a crunchy, which she says “feels really communal.”

Essentially, the idea is to spread butter onto a board, add all of your favorite toppings, and scoop it all up again with bread.

Sounds like pretty much heaven? I know.
