We got truffles from a chocolatier up in the Twin Cities and they are absolutely fabulous! My plan before this had been to have favors be some sort of chocolate in a little box and I was thinking of some sort of truffle with M&M’s as well. Again, these are FABULOUS!! So, when I told my mom again what my plan was, she thought I was crazy to have M&M’s as well (expense being her reason), but it got me thinking.
So, my question is this:
A: would just a single chocolate truffle be enough for a wedding favor?
B: would adding in M&M’s take away from the richness of the truffle?
a bonus question: if anyone out there has done truffles as a favor, did you put anything else with it and if so, what?

I love truffles- what a yummy favor! I think it would be cute if you did the one truffel in some type of clear wapper and then tied a bow that goes with your colors!

We are having boxed chocolates – actually a chocolate coated almond toffee and truffles that are locally made. I also love the m&ms, but first of all they are crazy expensive, and secondly we are having much, much better chocolate boxed as favors.
If we weren’t actually having entire little boxes of chocolates, I probably would get the m&ms, if only to put in bowls on the tables – you know, the way there are normally little mints or Jordan almonds or something. Not as a favor per se, but just for people to snack on.

I’d go quality over quanitity on this one and use the truffels only. A single boxed/packaged truffle can have a lot of impact and as others have mentioned on favor posts…chocolate is appreciated.

We did one truffle per guest, and each was in its own little gold box. Then again, I did spend days cutting ribbon to fit each little box (and trimming the monogram sticker that went on it!), so it wasn’t all that simple!
Honestly, i think one truffle per per person was fine. The m&ms would just be a costly addition that takes away from the truffley goodness! Can you believe how much m&ms are when custom or in different colors?

A: where did you get them??? I’m in the cities too!
B: one in a little box seems great to me. Mmmm, yummie!

Sweeney2Be, we’re looking at Legacy Chocolates for the truffles. My parents got a sample box from them at the Food & Wine experience and they are to die for! I especially loved the raspberry chocolate truffle, however they don’t have it listed on their website, so I’m not sure what’s up with that!
They are on Marshall Ave in St. Paul and they also have a shop in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

This is a good question, alli. I think the truffles and the m&ms would be too much together. However, I’m thinking just one truffle in a box may look weird. Has anyone given favors as two to a box?
