Jessica made hot cocoa favors for her wedding with the outstanding total cost of 35 cents per favor. The final product shot was retaken, but don’t let it fool you – read on to check out Jessica’s tips on how to achieve this yummy favor for so little. So timely for fall weddings!
What you’ll need:
– 100, 12″ Disposable Decorating Bags (x3)
– Chocolate powder (x2 from Costco or Sam’s club)
– 75 teeny, tiny hair ties (x2)
– Marshmallows bags (x4)
– Twine (x1)
– Favor tags (optional: download printable tag)
Step 1: Cut decorating bags around 6.5″
Step 2: Fill bag with 2 tablespoons (or whatever your chocolate powder suggests) with chocolate.
Step 3: Use the teeny, tiny hair tie to close off the chocolate. (You may need to cut the access bag after tying it off. The picture below, for example, should be cut so there’s just about a 1/2 inch of bag showing after the hair tie.)
Step 4: Insert chocolate filled cone into another decorating bag; make sure seams line up.
Step 5: Scoop out a 1/4 cup of marshmallows and poor into decorating bag on top of the chocolate cone.
Step 6: Tie a piece of ribbon, yarn, or string above the marshmallows. You need to make this tight so the marshmallows don’t dry out. I tied it into two knots.
Step 7: After string is secure around bag, add your favor tag and tie it into a pretty bow.
Step 8: Repeat as many times as necessary.
And there you have it, a quick, easy, and affordable wedding favors that are perfect for fall and winter weddings!
