Want to shower your guests with gifts of rich, delicious chocolate? Chocolate wedding favors are phenomenal wedding-party treats. Not only is chocolate irresistible to eat, it can also add elegant accents to your wedding reception tables. Chocolate can be served to your guests in many different ways. Besides its versatility, one of the best things about using chocolate as wedding favors is that you can make them yourself!
Chocolate covered strawberries are phenomenal wedding favors. Not only are they a combination of a delicious and juicy fruit and hard shell chocolate, they are beautiful when positioned on your wedding cake. I specifically requested that my cake have chocolate-covered strawberries cascading down the layers. There were plenty for each guest, and my cake was a three-layer cake. You can also opt for cherries dipped in chocolate as well.
You can dip just about anything in chocolate and it will taste delicious. Consider chocolate covered pretzels, peanuts, or raisins for wonderful edible wedding favors. Of course these can be wrapped in netting or placed in wedding favor boxes, but I personally think that small gift bags are a classy choice. Simply place wax paper in the bottom of the bags to prevent the treats from sticking. Place another piece of the wax paper to cover the tops.
Fall and winter weddings are great excuses to serve up a little hot cocoa. Purchase a few mugs and complete with a bag of cocoa mix, marshmallows, and a cinnamon stick for a cold-weather favorite. Tie hand-written tags around the handles of the mugs to personalize these wedding favors. Coffee and tea are also great substitutes for this gift of comfort and taste.
Who doesn’t love rich and smooth fudge? We all know someone who can make fantastic fudge, right? Our mother, grandmother, aunt, etc. If you do not feel comfortable attempting your own fudge wedding favors, ask someone to help out for this task. Wrap individual pieces of fudge in colored plastic wrap and tied with ribbon for festive morsels of goodness your guests can take home. The wrapped pieces of fudge can be stacked on glass serving platters for all to grab. Delicious!
For time-pressed wedding planners who want to use chocolate but do not have the time to make their own creations, consider ordering online. Many wedding favor websites dedicate much of their advertising to chocolate or other sweet treats like cookies. Also, Ghiradelli chocolates are nothing to shun – send each guest home with a bag of Ghiradelli chocolate and spread the joy!
