This might be the cutest holiday cheese board you've ever seen

Looking for something different to do with your holiday cheese board? Why not infuse it with a bit of holiday spirit?

This adorable design which incorporates three Wisconsin cheeses along with seasonal accompaniments is easy to put together and is sure to make your holiday table merry and bright.

Cheese board: The tree

Prep time: 20 minutes

Servings: 6

1 blood orange
1 pound asparagus
6 ounces Wisconsin gouda cheese, sliced into wedges
6 ounces Wisconsin blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup red grapes
1 long breadstick cracker
6 ounces Wisconsin white cheddar, cubed
4 ounces prosciutto

Directions: Slice blood orange into rounds and then into small wedges. Arrange a few at the bottom of your board to create the tree skirt.

Use asparagus spears to create the tree outline. Arrange a few slices of gouda inside the tree outline to create the first layer. Add crumbled blue cheese layer above gouda, filling in corners.

Place breadstick slightly above blue cheese layer and arrange single row of grapes below. (Leave a bit of stem on the grapes to make them look like ornaments hanging from the breadstick.)

Arrange two rows of cubed white cheddar above breadstick. Gently fold prosciutto into thin layer above cheddar. Fill in the top of your tree outline with more gouda slices. Use additional blood orange wedges to create a star at the top of your tree.
