I've been brainstorming some ideas for wedding favors that are affordable and where I won't have so much leftover and I got to thinking....Hot chocolate bombs/sticks!
Our wedding will be in December and was thinking about what we can give guests to enjoy while they wait for any last-minute photos and we got to thinking about making those. It's cold, and when it's cold, people like to drink hot chocolate! AND if there is a LOT left over, I know of a certain bride who just LOVES hot chocolate
Though, concern from friends is saying that they might melt or will have to be kept in the fridge for a LONG amount of time. Also, suggestions to make Hot Chocolate ornaments might be better.
I am SLIGHTLY against the ornaments because they really wouldn't fit with the theme of my wedding. Yes, the wedding is in December, BUT it's a constellation theme. If it was a Christmas or Winter theme, I could see us doing that, but after having to compete for my birthday between two holidays (my birthday is New Year's Eve) I don't really want any Christmas-themed stuff in my wedding.
So, my main question(s) is for those who had made or used Hot Chocolate bombs/Sticks,
How did you store them?
How long can they be on a table before melting?
Any other advice you can give for using those as favors?
