Giving chocolates as gifts is almost like stating the obvious! Everyone loves these rich, decadent treats. So when you opt for chocolates as edible wedding favors, you can be sure your guests will be delighted!
The challenge with something so popular, though, is how to narrow down the choices. Commercial chocolates are everywhere, in all sorts of packaging, and at every price range and quality level. Our suggestion, then? Make your own chocolate favors, based on some special ingredient, memory, or meaning! These 4 options we share here, then, range from home-baked goodness to gourmet glam. Which one is you as a couple?
Chocolate Inspirations for your Favors
- Are you a hot fudge sauce kind of couple? Then, this homemade version from Juneberry Lane is just the favor for you to give! The yummy recipe included comes in basic rich chocolate, plus Mexican (with cinnamon) and Mocha (with instant coffee) variations. And the sweet packaging is from My Own Labels’ holiday series.
- Cake pops, of course, have been a major wedding and party trend for months now. So you could DIY a chocolate version for favors. A bride whose wedding cake pops were featured on United With Love graciously shares her own recipe for making the 3 flavors they gave out: red velvet, peanut butter brownie, and lemon raspberry—with pretty coatings to match!
- Perhaps you’d like to treat guests to something extra special? Consider these dark chocolate truffles infused with roses, found on Delicious Shots! And yes, you can tell your guests that these actually contain dried roses and rose water. Fancy! We can just imagine the gorgeous packaging you can use to present these, too.
- Who doesn’t love truly fudgy, chewy brownies?! So, you can’t go wrong if you opt to give them as favors—as charmingly gift wrapped as these ones we found on Marketplace Weddings. Search online for a recipe as scrumptious as the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies by Browneyed Baker included in this post. Or to give your gifts added meaning, dig up a family heirloom recipe for brownies and tuck a recipe card into each favor box!
