As artfully arranged cheese and charcuterie grazing boards https://www.instagram.com/p/B4tGWiAB6DR/ grew in popularity, the new trend for crafting these bites into do-it-yourself structures mimicking gingerbread houses for the holidays soon followed.

"TREND ALERT! Tag someone that needs to know about the Charcuterie Chalet!!

This savory take on the traditional gingerbread house is all the rage this year. I’ve rounded up some great examples from around the web and will be making my own soon.

So are we into this trend or no?!?l #charcuteriechalet

I’m loving the pretzel windows and the mozzarella ball snowmen in particular.
