Open the packaging for all of your charcuterie components so that they are easily accessible while building your charcuterie cups.

  1. Spread out your cups – the short plastic cups work well to hold plenty of goodies and also look impressive. Fill the bottom of each cup with a few almonds (these are nice and dry so they won’t mind the other components resting in them and they also weight down the bottom of the cup a bit.)

  2. Add your tall components (in this case, the cheese twists.) The cheese twists will frame the back of the cup. Add crackers to the cup also.

  3. Fold pieces of salami into fourths and poke onto a food pick. Line up 4-5 pieces of salami on each pick (or whatever fits). Tuck the salami picks into the charcuterie cup.

  4. Cut the brie into eight wedges. Place a wedge of cheese and some berries or grapes onto a pick. Make cheese/fruit picks and add them to the charcuterie cups.

  5. Make olive picks and add them to the cups.

  6. Finish the cups by placing an herb sprig toward the back of the cup. Fill empty space with more grapes, berries, and nuts.
