Begin my prepping arranging all of your ingredients. I like to begin by laying all my cups out, slicing any cheese I am using, then slicing any fruit last.
Once everything is prepped, you can begin to fill the cups. I like to put heavier items (like nuts, seeds, dried fruit and grapes on the bottom) then add in crackers, cheese, meats and any others ingredients on the top. Depending on your cups size, I will add 2 tbsp of nuts/seeds/dried fruit, 2 pieces of meat, 2-3 crackers, 4-6 pieces of cheese, 5 grapes, berries or sliced fruit, then a couple extras like a baby carrot, black olives. I also like to roll or fold meat to save on space, and make the Charcuterie Cups more visually appealing. The above ingredients are meant to be equally divided among 12 cups.
Additionally, I like to incorporate large toothpicks to hold things like cheese balls, black olives and mini pickles. This helps separate items and keep things less muddled and separate. A lot of the prep will depend on what ingredients you want to add and what your guests enjoy. This is a rough outline and I encourage you to get creative and add in different things if you wish.
