A Sweet Favor Idea

I was thumbing through Crate & Barrel’s 2008 Gift Guide the other day and saw these delightful chocolate-filled cookie cutters.

What a cute favor idea! Cookie cutter favors are nothing new, but filling them with chocolate is a great way to give your guests a little something extra, especially since not everyone will necessarily use the cookie cutter once they take it home. Just pop the chocolate out of the cutter and enjoy.

These are obviously holiday-themed, but cookie cutters come in a large enough variety to suit any wedding theme. Check out Off the Beaten Path for an impressive selection of over 800 cutters. I’ve never attempted to fill cookie cutters with chocolate before, but I imagine it’s relatively simple. I found this recipe for chocolate lollipops on that I’m sure could be adapted.

You could also go a step further and embellish the chocolate with a variety of edible decorations, as with these cookie cutters from Uncommon Goods.

The sky’s the limit, so have fun with it!
