If you read our recent post on chocolate alternatives to wedding cake, you’ll love this one. Continue bucking tradition with unique chocolate wedding favors.
Wedding favors date back to Renaissance-era Europe, when couples would give their guests small trinkets, love knots, or bonbonnières as a gesture of gratitude for attending the wedding. Today, the tradition continues, but more couples are opting for something a bit more unique than sugared almonds.
Edible wedding favors are still a favorite. In this post, we suggest chocolate alternatives that are easy to take home, a bit unexpected, and sure to delight your guests.
1. Chocolate truffles
A delicious bite all on their own, or as part of a small favor box, chocolate truffles pack a punch. Chef Nicole is constantly creating new flavor combinations, so you can easily find some that represent your tastes, background, or story as a couple:
You can even choose truffles that represent your shared interests. Wine-lovers will enjoy the aptly-named wine collection. If you’re a quirky couple, you might like the childhood collection, and if you share an adventurous streak, dare your guests with the insect collection!
2. Hot cocoa & marshmallows
Whether it’s nostalgia or simply appreciation for the child inside of all of us, dessert bars with s’mores and other childhood treats are becoming increasingly popular at weddings. Encourage guests to take the fun home with individual packets of hot cocoa and marshmallows to go!
3. Chocolate bark
Prefer things a little rougher around the edges? Consider chocolate bark. You can easily package these in favor bags with your monogram or table settings on them.
For a more rustic feel, you might display these directly on the table. Scatter them around for beautiful yet edible decor. They’re more functional and eco-friendly (and certainly more scrumptious) than flower petals or confetti!
