Wedding favors that are edible usually all have one thing in common – they are sugary and sweet. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, but some brides may want to branch out and try different ideas on edible wedding favors. Pretzels are manufactured in different shapes and sizes and can be a cornerstone in finding a creative path to great guest wedding favors.
Make Your Own Snack Mix:
Add flair to your pretzel wedding favors by combining them with other items such as peanuts, almonds, cheese crackers, veggie crackers, raisins, or peanut butter chips. With a light dusting of garlic powder or whatever you prefer, you have a gourmet snack for your wedding guests.
Snack mix can be displayed two ways – individually for each guest using a favor bag or box or community-style in which snack mix is served openly in big bowls or platters.
Chocolate or Yogurt Covered Pretzels (or both):
Salty and sweet, who doesn’t love these lavish snacks? If you are making these yourself, you can make them up to three days before your wedding as long as they are sealed properly. To make the chocolate stiff, refrigerate after dipping the pretzels in melted chocolate. If making yogurt covered pretzels, dip in confectioners sugar and yogurt and place in warm oven for three to four hours until hardened. These are especially fantastic wedding favors for a black and white style wedding or throw some colored sprinkles on for a spring wedding.
Reverse it: Stripe your chocolate pretzels with melted white chocolate or pour chocolate syrup on your yogurt covered pretzels. Either idea will be sure to impress your wedding crowd.
The light and airiness of a soft pretzel is a treat one must taste to truly understand. Soft pretzels come in several varieties including salted or unsalted, butter, cinnamon, and cheese. Considered an unusual wedding favor, the pretzel is an edible treat that is adaptable for any type of wedding. Many bakeries place orders to bake soft pretzels, or they could be homemade. Soft pretzels can also be filled with a fruit filling for a pastry-like quality. Bakery pretzels are best when served warm, so they should not be brought to the tables until the guests are seated.
