            1. Simplify your life with seasonal dessert cheese boards. Simply pair Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese with fruit-based desserts in spring and summer, harvest flavors of apples and pumpkin in autumn, and luxurious chocolate offerings for the holidays. Decorate dessert cheese boards with seasonal accents like fresh herbs, small pumpkins or evergreen sprigs. When guests can serve themselves, you have more time to socialize.

            2. Establish your own casually elegant style. By offering a selection of desserts, you can easily please a crowd. The sweet cream flavor and velvety texture of Crave Brothers Mascarpone invites creativity. Add small portions of mousse or parfaits to the dessert board, with a few nibbles like mini cookies or candied walnuts. Lemon Mascarpone Tarts or Mascarpone Filled Strawberries round out the selection.

            3. Draw on seasonal fresh ingredients for inspiration.  For example, for spring and summer entertaining, follow the fruit.  Make desserts such as Berry Kabobs with Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella. They’re served on skewers with fresh blackberries and strawberries, fresh mint leaves and cherry-size Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Ciliegine.

            4. Create fun fall gatherings with memorable desserts. Seasonal dessert cheese boards are ideal for football parties or Thanksgiving celebrations. Offer fall flavors like Pumpkin Tiramisu Parfaits made with Crave Brothers Mascarpone, and apple slices with Sweet and Savory Apple Cheesy Dip. The dip blends apple butter, grated sharp cheddar cheese and Crave Brothers Mascarpone. Add dried fruit, spiced pecans, and biscotti to the cheese board to complete your dessert course.

            5. Serve up bite-sized holiday luxury. For holiday entertaining, consider rich desserts made with Crave Brothers Mascarpone. Irish Crème Dessert Cups or combinations like Berries and Crave Brothers Mascarpone Chocolate Truffles are specialties to see you through the season.
