Ensure all the Castello cheese is well chilled for easier slicing and cut it into the required shapes for bricks, shingles, windows and bushes. Place the Tre Stelle Original Cream Cheese into a bag for piping.
Using your preferred chalet structure (purchased separately), slather a good amount of Tre Stelle Original Cream Cheese onto your structure and smooth it out evenly with a spatula. The cream cheese will hold the other ingredients to the house.
Place the first row of Castello Gouda Slice shingles evenly on the roof, add the second row so that it slightly overlaps the first row, and repeat. Place the halved pepperoni slices on the lower roof one at a time and repeat to the top.
Prepare your windows by piping four small dots of cream cheese on a whole-wheat cracker and attaching four small squares of Castello Herbs & Spices Havarti Cheese to each. Place your Castello havarti bricks starting at the bottom centre and alternating as you move up to create the traditional brick pattern.
Pipe a thick line of Tre Stelle cream cheese along all four corners of the house and attach a breadstick to each. Pipe thin lines on the breadsticks and add thyme leaves.
Pipe a circle of cream cheese around the window and place almonds evenly. Pipe more cream cheese to resemble snow and decorate as shown. Finish the house by placing half of the Castello Taste Mexico cream cheese ring under the windows to serve as bushes.
Pipe a path to the front door and top with ground candied pecans, then have fun filling the space on the board with all your favourite charcuterie ingredients. Just before serving, grate everyone’s favourite cheddar cheese, the crunchy Castello Extra Mature Tickler, for the perfect snowfall effect.
