Giving bottled maple syrup as favors at a fall wedding is always a big hit! But what about trying something a bit different? Still edible favors. Still using maple syrup, but this time to flavor the most scrumptious DIY goodies! Wondering what these might be? Well, to get you started, here are four delicious options for maple-flavored favors featured on some great food blogs. Each link includes a recipe, so you can easily make these treats yourself!
See What You Can Make Using Maple Syrup
- Give something yummy and healthy, like these maple walnut biscotti! We discovered these on All Day I Dream About Food and they certainly sound tempting, with ingredients like almond flour, maple extract (to keep the carbs low), and walnut pieces enhanced with toasted walnut oil! Drizzle with a sweet glaze, allow this to set, package, and give!
- Maple-flavored pecans, anyone? Yes, that’s what these are, courtesy of Serious Eats. But this is an extra-special treat prepared by soaking pecans in a brine mixture flavored with maple syrup, bourbon and fresh rosemary! As the post declares, the result is wonderfully crunchy nuts with a woodsy herbaceous flavor. Package them in mini jam jars and tie on a thank-you tag each.
- Cookies in the shape of maple leaves are such a sweet way to celebrate the season! The site where we found these, Sweet Pea’s Kitchen, describes them oh so temptingly: “maple cream filling sandwiched between two delicious maple flavored cookies.” Arrange these in vintage-style tins or on dainty saucers found at thrift stores—and these containers become great wedding keepsakes for your guests once the cookies are all gone!
- Love the glistening glaze of these caramel apples, featured on Leite’s Culinaria! Apparently, the secret lies in the combination of three kinds of syrup (including maple of course, and dark molasses), butter, and heavy cream. Have some for guests to enjoy at the wedding, plus others for them to take home as favors.
