A giant block of chocolate, you say? Well, not quite, but close. Here at Little Wed Hen HQ we’re unable to resist anything containing even the faintest trace of cocoa, so when we saw these fabulous hot chocolate wedding favours from the talented Bri from Rotated Designs we got in touch right away to find out how we could make some of our own.
While admittedly it’s highly possible that these chocolate-filled delights will be consumed before getting to the wedding venue, we think it’s safe to say that they’ll go down a treat.
In the below Bri takes us through the favour-making process.
Hot chocolate “ice-cream cone” wedding favours
- Some 12″ (25cm) disposable decorating bags (2 per favour)
- Hot chocolate mix
- Chocolate chips
- Small, clear, rubber hair ties
- M&Ms, or any other red chocolates or lollies (optional)
What to do:
1) Pour 1/2 cup (120 mL) of hot chocolate into a decorating bag. Cut the bag about 2 inches (6 cm) from the top of the hot chocolate mix. Tie the bag with a small rubber band.
2) Put the hot chocolate bag that you just tied off into another decorating bag, making sure the seams of the bags line up.
3) Pour 3 tablespoons (1.5 fl oz) of chocolate chips into the second bag on top of the hot chocolate cone. Pour 1/3 cup (80 mL) of marshmallows on top of the chocolate chips.
4) Optional: Add red M&M’s (I used 5) or another red lolly to form a cherry on top!
Bri adds: When I made my favors, it was for an early January wedding. There were giant holiday bags of M&Ms available with just red and green M&Ms. This made buying in bulk and separating out the colors much easier.
5) Tie the top decorating bag with another rubber band and trim to your liking. Make sure this bag is as airtight as possible to prevent the marshmallows from drying out.
6) Add a favour tag using ribbon or twine thanking your guests for being part of your day.
Bri has also been kind enough to do an interview with us, so stay tuned for a feature on her fabulous wedding invitations!
