Food For Favors

There are a lot of ideas out there for food favors, everything from cookies to candy to more extreme ideas like Tabasco sauce (with the name of the bride and groom on it of course!)

For a new taste treat try marshmallows. No, not just any marshmallows like you'd use for s'mores. No these sweet treats are the creation of Jessica, the author and creative genius behind "How Sweet It Is" a blog for anyone who loves food, eating it, creating it, or hates the aftermath of working off the calories or cleaning the kitchen. Jessica has something for everyone. And not only that, her cooking is pure genius!

For your wedding favors Jessica has provided you with a recipe for homemade marshmallows. And not just any marshmallows. And not just any chocolate covered marshmallows. And not just any chocolate covered marshmallows with pretzels on top. But BEER flavored chocolate covered marshmallows! Ah! Now there's a wedding favor with a difference.  

Just bag those sweet eats up and add a pretty tag you make yourself or order from an Etsy artist. 

Jessica points out her inspiration for these incredible lightly tasting of beer and pretzels treat at the bottom of her blog. "Source: idea from an ad seen in Food and Wine, then a quick google search led me here; marshmallow recipe from smittenkitchen, subbing beer for water; flattening beer instructions from here." 

Don't want to have to go through the mess of making your own beer marshmallows and dipping them in chocolate and pretzels? You can buy them online at Truffle Truffle.  There's always an easy way out if you aren't a DIYer!
