    Can you just set it up in some ice coolers in a shady room until it’s time to distribute?  I love the idea.

    Obviously Rocky Road means something different to you than it does for me. Rocky Road here is a flavor of ice cream.

    Well we’re not having favours (they’re not really done in the UK) so I wouldn’t have them … but if it means a lot to you then I would do them the night before and leave them in the fridge and then if your venue has a fridge then put them in there in the morning. Although if your leaving them on plates or at place settings at the meal then be aware of the room getting a bit warm!

    Although shop made ones tend to be a bit more hardy as they temper the chocolate so it has a higher melting point, home made one that aren’t tempered may melt easier!

    hope I helped!

    i think some people skip favors because they don’t care for them or want to save $$. if that was your issue, i would say skip them because you don’t need them.  but if you have a great idea and want to do them, then i say take the PPs suggestion of keeping them cold until it is time to hand them  out.

    @CatyLady: ahh – sorry i didn’t spot where you were from! 

    Honestly I don’t think i have ever been to a wedding with them!so sorry about that – but the rest of my advice still stands – and I wouldn’t worry too much anyway – no one’ll be like “ooo – no favours – cheap skate!” I’m sure everyone’ll be too busy enjoying your wedding!

    Leicester weather in June

    19°C / 66°F

    9°C / 48°F

     

    If this information is correct, then the chocolate should be fine. We keep our homes about 20 degrees and chocolate left out at room temperature does not melt.

    It’s easy enough to find instructions online on how to temper the chocolate before you make the candy.

    I think it will be fine, maybe you can leave it in a cooler until you put it out or have someone put it out right before the reception.   (Could you send me some, it sounds yummy,JK)
