Fall Wedding Favor Ideas with an Artisan Flair!

Edible fall favors beyond the usual! Think sophisticated and scrumptious with an artisan flair.

1 – Artisan “apple pie caramels” – This is actually a featured recipe from an entire book on Artisan Caramels by Sandy Arevalo, reviewed by OMG Goodies. So you have a whole bookful to choose from!

2 – Pecan pie macarons with salted butter caramel sauce – Can you imagine all these in macarons? You must check out the recipe for this decadent yet delicate confection by Tartelette.

3 – Pumpkin bread – Imagine surprising each guest with his or her own mini loaf of pumpkin bread to take home. Try this special recipe from Alexandra Cooks…it’s her mom’s!

4 – Caramel lollipops – These delightful free-form lollipops from The Kitchn are infused with Thanksgiving-inspired flavors and hide a pecan or cranberry in each one!

5- Sweet potato and beet chips with garlic rosemary salt – What a gorgeous (and yummy) favor idea! Follow the recipe by Giada de Laurentiis, from Food Network, then package in clear cello bags with fall trimmings.

6 – Gingerbread spiced nuts – That well-loved aroma of gingerbread will fill the autumn air with this spiced-up mix of pecans and walnuts by Aggie’s Kitchen.

7 – Maple cinnamon meringue cookies with toasted almonds – Believe it or not, these meringues are sugar-free! As Gourmande in the Kitchen describes them, it’s maple syrup and cinnamon that add a rich warm flavor while toasted chopped almonds add crunch.

8 – Fabulous fig bars – A hearty, chewy treat featured on Food Hero, filled with old-fashioned rolled oats, walnuts and dried figs.

9 – Mooncakes – The Mid-Autumn Festival is a major occasion for the Chinese, and gives you the perfect excuse to treat guests to a surprise treat: mooncakes! Two Red Bowls shares a recipe you can try.

10 – Fall harvest cookies – Great tips from Blondie’s Sugar Art for icing and hand painting your basic sugar cookies for a fall theme.

11 – Glazed pears – Love this presentation of a true fall favorite by Amy Atlas, via Pepper Design Blog. Sort of like giving out candied apples, using pears instead!

12 – Homemade torrone – How tempting is this traditional Italian-style torrone from The Vintage Mixer with a recipe that is literally ‘short and sweet’ – just honey, egg whites, and nuts.
