• We’re all familiar with charcuterie boards, right? You know, those gorgeous grazing boards topped with all the delicious savoury (and sometimes sweet) treats you could want? Well, it’s time for charcuterie to take a backseat as we usher in a new kind of board, one that, could potentially be less heavy on the pockets and just as delicious. Curious? Im talking about Tik Tok’s trending butter boards of course.


    A Butter Board IS THE MOST BRILLIANT IDEA I Have Ever Come Across 🤯 IB: @justine_snacks #butter #butterboard #fyp

    You’ve probably seen it pop up on your For You Page (FYP) already, but if you’re not familiar, don’t worry. By the end of this, you’ll be ready to jet off to Woolies to snatch up a Lurpak, chilli oil and some edible flowers.

    All you need is a wooden chopping board, a block of your favourite butter (at room temp), chilli oil, lemon zest, honey, nuts for crunch, edible flowers, and your choice of fresh bread. Start by laying down your parchment paper, then generously smear with room temperature butter, drizzle with chilli oil and honey, sprinkle with lemon zest and top with your choice of crushed nuts – I like them roasted. Lastly, decorate with your edible flowers and there you have it! A gorgeous snack board that took only moments to make. Once you’ve got the shot (yes, I know you’ll be taking pictures) serve with slices of your favourite, fresh bread.


    This Carnivore Butter Board was DELICIOUS! Whoever comes up with these ideas is a genius. It was so easy. #butterboard #butterboards #butter #carnivore #barbecue #fyp

    Don’t limit yourself. Play around. There are so many different variations to butter board toppings online (surprisingly, vegan options too) that could potentially unlock new snacking realms for you. Some people do go to extremes, though (no thanks, I won’t be smoking my butter with hickory pellets or black tea) but you do you!

    If you’re not a big butter fan, some people have come up with alternatives like yoghurt, or cream cheese.

    Ultimately, is the butter board worth the hype? I’d say so. This is a great alternative to forking out hundreds of rands on a charcuterie board. There’s less variety, of course, but who doesn’t love butter? There are few things greater than enjoying a freshly baked bread served with real butter. I’m all in.
