Mmmmmm..chocolate. One of the most popular wedding favors out there for brides is to use some kind of candy. It's relatively inexpensive, well liked by nearly everyone, and you can wrap it up to where it looks totally cute. Perhaps the favorite (of mine anyway) are the chocolate wedding favors. Despite what you think, you don't have to spend a fortune to make chocolate wedding favors, its a great inexpensive wedding favor. On top of that, you can even lots of different things with chocolate wedding favors to spice it up and make it unique for your wedding. Here are some great ideas to make your own chocolate wedding favors.
1. Chocolate Rose Wedding Favors
If you haven't seen this done before, it's pretty charming. Grab some Hershey's kisses, wire, cellophane, green florist tape, and some silk leaves if you like. To make these chocolate wedding favors, take two kisses, put them bottom to bottom and stick a length of wire through them both. Then wrap them tightly in cellophane and secure with the florist tape, adding leaves to the middle of the wires as desired. This takes a lot of time, but they turn out cute if you keep everything looking the same. It may take you a couple of roses before you get the knack for it. But they can be placed in small baskets in the middle of each table as a cute addition to your table's centerpiece.
2. Chocolate Lollipop Wedding Favors
This chocolate wedding favor can be done quickly and easily, and they do turn out really cute. Simply go to a craft store and pick out a candy mold that you would like to use, and a bag of lollipop sticks as well (you can get a pack of a hundred or more for just a few dollars). Then, melt almond bark and add food coloring if you'd like a certain color, pour into mold, add the lollipop stick, and freeze for a few minutes until firm. Then, wrap each in cellophane and store in the refrigerator until time to serve. Or, if you prefer, you can find your own recipe for chocolate and use that instead, but almond bark is the easiest for me.
3. Chocolate Bar Wedding Favors
This is a really simple wedding favor. Go to the store and either get a bunch of mini chocolate bars such as a bag of assorted chocolate bars, or large full size chocolate bars. Then you can get on the internet and order wrappers in your wedding colors or with a special pre-printed note to your guests, remove the original wrapping and replace it with your special wrapper. Voila! Easy, right
4. Chocolate Candy Wedding Favors
This one is getting really popular. Instead of pre-packaging hundreds of little individual wedding favors, buy lots of types of chocolates, display them attractively in large bowls, and provide each guest with a small bag they can fill with their favorites and take home. All you'll need for this is large bowls for the candy, a scoop for each candy, small bags or boxes for the guests to use, and any other table decorations you like. Very simple, and you ensure that your guests get their favorite to take home.
Like I said, chocolate's great, and nearly everyone loves it. It's a great no hassle wedding favor that you can quickly make and store until your big day.
