Perfect as a gift for your sweetheart
Share as a couples platter
Makes for a fun platter to surprise your kids to enjoy!
Slate Cheese Board
To build a King of Hearts and Queen of Hearts, I found that slate cheese boards are perfect for the look of a playing card. The slate cheese boards I used are 12" x 18". Slate cheese boards are easy to find like on Amazon or home good shops.
King and Queen of Hearts Shopping List
You will need to purchase a few items ahead of time to build your platter/s.
The supplies below are to make the couples platter, however you can make an individual platter for your sweetheart if you wish!
Board - 2 x Slate Cheese boards 12" x 18" to build the couples King and Queen of Hearts
Supplies - 2 x Cream Placemats, King and Queen crown cookie cutters, Heart cookie cutter, Paper doilies, Jumbo playing cards
Cheese - Brie wheel, Pepper Jack cheese slices
Meats - Dry Salami
Crackers - Valley Lavash Heart crackers,
Bakery - Vanilla and Chocolate Pizzelle
Fruits - Strawberries, Raspberries
Dried Goods & Sweets - M & M's Fun Size Hearts, M & M's Milk Chocolate, Dried Rose Petals
Thoroughly wash your fruit before you begin and let them dry.
Make 3 Strawberry Flowers - You will find how to make 'Strawberry Flowers' in my Food Prep section of my blog
Cookie cutters: Prepare the Brie Heart by pushing a heart shaped cookie cutter through the Brie. You will be using both the wheel and heart cut out on your platter.
Make Pepper Jack cheese slice crowns and hearts. Pepper Jack cheese has a nice red pepper flake and adds a bit of spiciness!
Lay your cream placemat down where you wish to set up your platter/s. Place your slate cheese board on top. The cream placemat acts as a frame for your platter.
Place your slate boards side-by-side if you are making both of them.
Place your paper doilies in the center of your slate cheese board.
Use the images as your guide!
Step 1: Open the M&M's fun package and separate the hearts and place them at either end of the board.
Step 2: Add Vanilla Pizzelle on the Queen of Hearts board and the Chocolate Pizzelle on the King of Hearts board.
Step 3: Place the heart Brie on the Queen of Hearts board and the wheel of Brie with the heart cut out on the King of Hearts board
Step 4: Place Valley Lavash Heart crackers around your paper doilies.
Step 5: Place your Queen and King Pepper Jack crowns on your board. Like a playing card, make sure one crown is facing upward while the other is facing downward.
Step 6: Queen of Hearts: Add Strawberry flowers
Step 7: King of Hearts: Fill the heart cut out with raspberries
Step 9: Take 6 x salami rounds by folding them in 1/2, then 1/4. Gather together all 6 salami folds and place them around the Brie heart and Brie wheel.
Step 9: Turn over the plastic M&M's hearts containers and fill them with M&M's chocolates.

Step 10: As a final touch sprinkle dried rose petals on your Brie hearts!
