Christmas is just around the corner, and your extended family and friends may already be rolling into town to celebrate the holidays with your household. You may have been a little preoccupied trying to find each of them the perfect gift, getting the house in order and planning a delicious holiday menu only to remember they will probably be hungry before then! And we all know there's nothing like a cheese board to please a crowd.

We were inspired by one of our favorite Instagram accounts, @TheBakerMama, and her absolutely adorable charcuterie boards, apps, desserts and more to make a cheese board similar to the viral appetizer of hers we shared earlier this month. Enter our Candy Cane Beet & Goat Cheese Board for ensuring happy bellies within minutes of assembly.

All you need is goat cheese, cooked beets (you can buy them pre-sliced, if desired), candied pecans, honey and whole-grain bread slices for serving. You can even make your own candied pecans, swapping them out for walnuts here, which would make a great treat to keep on hand throughout the long weekend.

We arranged the sliced beets in a candy cane shape, then topped with our crumbled goat cheese, chopped pecans and honey and served with some sliced whole-grain bread rounds. It's so easy, you have no excuse not to make this delicious app for the holidays!
