My Fiance and I have taken on the task of DIYing our favors. We are making 4 chocolate truffles for each two person set. So there will be four (at least) at each table. Anyone coming alone will have the luxury of getting their very own box! In any case, We made a batch on Friday to test everything out. I am attaching the pictures, please tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions (do they look sloppy??).
We’re also doing a white or dark choco fleur de lis in each box.
(I can never get that image link to work… does it not work with Firefox?)

I think they look BETTER because they are homemade. I get a little skeptical about perfect truffles… yours are beautiful and made with love. I would be so happy to get these favors.

Thanks! If it turns out well, and my Fiance and I don’t kill eachother in the process (it can be stressful because the coating has to be kept within a range of about 3 degrees), I am going to try and post a DIY Tutorial. Plus, with thisbatch we did some experimenting as far as technique. I bet by the end of our 7 batches we will have some good tips.
The recipe I use is from Alton Brown. I just tweek the add-in. He calls for Brandy, we put rum and cayenne pepper in this batch. We are going to do some with almond extract, some with raspberry liqueur and I am thinking about trying to make centers that are similar to Peanut Butter cups. I was also thinking about doing a batch with white choco coating and a lemon butter filling (for those who don’t like chocolate).
I am excited but also a bit intimidated! I know if we can actually DO it people will love it, but its a lot of work.

Not only do those truffles look delicious, but the box and the paper pom on top is so cute too! You both did a fabulous job! If I were attending a wedding, I’d LOVE to have my own box of chocolates. How about a calligraphy type banner overhead where they are displayed with that famous quote from Forrest Gump?
