As a guest, which of the following would you rather have as a favor.
Cookies! I love cookies though, so maybe I'm biased.
I voted Home-made chocolate truffles.
BUT - I've never tried homemade ones and have no idea if I'd like them.
I think cookies would be universally preferred... but, if you make killer truffles, I'd swoon (I've just never had any homemade truffles that I swoon over!) :)
Truffles. I don't like everyones cookies, truffles you can't go wrong with!
Agreed, I haven't tried making any yet but I'd definitely test out a bunch of recipes before I committed to it. My mom and I are pretty killer bakers, we'll be making my wedding cake. She's been doing it for friends, family, acquaintances for the better part of 20 years and most guests say it's the best wedding cake they've ever had. :)
I don't think you can go wrong with cookies or truffles :) Are you just doing them in little bags or like a cookie/truffle buffet?
Looove me some chocolate covered pretzels!
chocolate covered pretzels!
I have a friend who makes homemade chocolate truffles and they are DIVINE!!!!
Omg... all three....
@Brooklyn55: Thanks! I'd do them in little boxes or bags depending and probably do two of each for each guest. :)
@Sunnyday278: Oohhh...you wouldn't happen to know where her recipe is from would you?
@UltrasoundTech: Haha that's pretty much my thoughts on truffles! :)
What a great idea.. my vote is for cookies, who doesn't love those?
I voted truffles! We are giving truffles as our wedding favor...so I might be a bit biased ;)
Hahaha! I agree with all those that said all 3!
I don't eat any of those things, but asked my FI and he said "home-made chocolate truffles!". :)
Tough choice, but, I think truffles!
I picked truffles.They are both yummy and classy..
Woo! Chocolate covered pretzels!!! I actually suggested that to my sister for when she gets married. Cheap and easy to make plus they taste awesome!
@Puppy Love: Truffles or cookies.
I make truffles every Xmas as gifts,everyone in my family loves them but I loathe making them. So messy and if you have a lot to make,quite time consuming. I would live them as a gift though.
I would vote either truffles or pretzels. I would be a bit nervous about the cookies getting stale, but if you've got that figured out all three could work! yum!
Truffles! They don't have to be homemade... I will love them anyway!
I voted truffles, as they'll last longer, so you don't have to do a last minute rush. though all of them would be lovely.
@Puppy Love: Making truffles is super easy. It's just heavy cream with chocolate melted into it. People love my truffles. I roll them in cocoa powder, Heath bits, chopped almonds, or chopped peanuts. The almond and Heath versions are most popular. While it is easy, it's is annoying trying to get all the balls to be similar sizes and it's expensive; heavy cream and chocolate are pricey. I would say stick to the tried and true homemade cookie.
@bunnyharriet: I agree with you about how annoying it is to try and get all the balls the same size and I find that after I've made a few the chocolate softens to easily and it gets more difficult.
I've been thinking and there must be an easier way. I wonder if using a melon baller would help. I'm going to try it then next time. All this talk of truffles us making me crave them,I think I'll make some for Valentines day :)
Found this video and I'm definetly going to try a melon baller next time.
@Lindarella: I've tried and the melon baller didn't make it much easier, and you have to scrap the mixture out of it. I find rolling the truffle "dough" into a log and cutting each piece the same size makes it easier since you have about the small amount of dough in each sliced piece. Another idea is to roll the truffle out and use a cookie cutter. I have a star shaped cookie cutter which is quite small. I don't leave the truffles in a star shape; the idea is to use something that will get you uniform pieces and then you roll them into a ball.
I would love chocolate pretzel sticks (: Yummy! My second choice would be Truffles.
@bunnyharriet: Great tips,thank you :) Its trial and error I guess.
@Puppy Love: Let us know what you decide :)
I would eat any of these! Do you want to put the favors at each place setting? If you don't have your heart set on doing that, you could always prepare some of each treat and display the favors and have people take what they want.
Ohhhh do I only get to pick one.....I'll take all 3! My vote would be the chocolate covered pretzels b/c I love the sweet and salty combo!
Chocolate covered pretzel sticks! Love the contrast of sweet and salty :)
I feel like one of the few people in the world who doesn't love truffles. That being said, I picked cookies. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing something like this as the thank you favor at our small destination wedding this fall. The CD sleeves are a perfect (and cheap!) way to tie in my SO's love of music too :)
Chocolate covered pretzels!!! Mmmm
