Who doesn’t love chocolate? Well, there may be a few people out there who aren’t crazy over this scrumptious concoction, but most women and men definitely have a weakness for this tasty treat. Plus, the latest news is that a little dark chocolate can be good for your health.
Why are we talking about chocolate so much? Well, because chocolate is a wonderful choice for your wedding favors. For one, you can choose chocolates that match your budget. You can spend a little or a lot. Plus, you can even carry that chocolate theme through other parts of your wedding, including your cake and even your invitations. Imagine sending out decadent invitations such as the Celebration Jacket, Celebration Pocket, and Keepsake Jacket.
Regardless of why you want to choose chocolate, here are some ideas for some tasty and lovely chocolate wedding favors.
Chocolate Wedding Favors: Do-It-Yourself Ideas
Take a trip to your local cooking shop and you’ll probably find a large selection of candy molds, even some that would be perfect for either a traditional wedding theme or something more unique (palm trees or fish for a beach wedding, for example). The molds are inexpensive and can be reused to match multiple batches. Purchase some chocolate chips or bars of chocolate to melt and pour into the molds. Freeze them solid. Right before your wedding, place a few of the chocolates in a decorative bag and tie with a ribbon for a perfect party favor.
Similarly, you can make chocolate lollipops using the same method. The only difference is that you’ll want to choose special molds that have a place for the stick. For best results, pour the melted chocolate over the stick into the mold then freeze.
