Chocolate!  Is there any way that you can have someone wait to put them out until right before the reception so you don’t have to worry about melting?

It looks like we’re leaning towards giving Andes mint chocolates, which are the best of both worlds! You can make little personalized wraps for them and put them in a cute favor box.

I own a chocolate business so here’s my two cents.  If you are doing an outdoor wedding, forgo the chocolate favors.  Chocolate completely melts at body temperature (98.6) but will soften at temperatures in the 80s.  White chocolate has the highest temperature tolerance.

Even if you keep the chocolate in air conditioning, or a cooler, when you bring the chocolate out into warm temperatures the chocolate will “sweat”.  The condensation will discolor the chocolate or cause it to bloom (form sugar crystals) when the condensation evaporates.

I have a strict “no shipping” policy above 80 degrees.  I just can’t guarantee the quality of my product above this temperature.

@MrsWall2B: haha sorry! We love Andes. How are you giving them out? I haven’t figured out how I want to present them yet.

@arenyth: I was going to suggest Andes also!! They are one of my favorite candies – chocolate & mint = best candy combination ever!
