S'mores are a staple of outdoor weddings in any season, but especially in the fall when the weather gets chilly and a bonfire is apropos. You're cooking them up over a bonfire, adding them to your sweets table, and even making them into cakes! But a perfect way to provide a dessert AND a takeaway gift is an easy-to-make s'mores wedding favor.
Here's how to make them super easily with a few staples from Michaels Weddings™…
What you'll need
- Clear favor bags or boxes (I used Wilton® Favor Kit from Michaels Weddings™)
- Large marshmallows
- Chocolate bars of your choice
- Graham crackers or cookies (I used Digestive biscuits to fit the round favor bag shape)
- Tags (I used Martha Stewart Copper Solid Paper Tags from Michaels Weddings™)
Optional, but fun:
- Votive candles for heating marshmallows (I used Ashland® Basic Elements™ Glass Votive Candles from Michaels Weddings™)
- A match holder (I used Celebrate It™ Occasions™ Glass Snap-Top Favor Jars from Michaels Weddings™)
- Signage (I used Brown Plank Clip Mini Frame by Studio Décor® from Michaels Weddings™)
Feel free to get creative with the ingredients: use white chocolate, caramel-filled chocolate, spicy chocolate, sandwich cookies, chocolate chip cookies, or whatever you like!
Step one: Layer ingredients in favor bag
This favor will make two s'mores. Starting with two graham crackers or biscuits, add on a layer of chocolate blocks, then four large marshmallows, then another layer of chocolate, and lastly, two more graham crackers or biscuits.
Step two: add a tag and matches
Hand-write, print out, or purchase some pre-made favor tags. Using some twine or ribbon, lace the tag and a couple of long matches around the favor bag to secure it. Tie it in a tight bow so that it's easily opened but not coming undone.
Step three: include a sign, candle, and more matches
For display and for making s'mores at the wedding itself, feel free to add some signage, a votive candle, and a few more matches to beef up the favor. Then you're done! This was a pretty traditional s'mores combination of flavors, but you could go pretty wild. What kind of s'mores would you gift?
