DIY Hot Cocoa Wedding Favor

For a winter themed wedding, we suggest finding a wedding favor that matches the season. We always enjoy when brides send their guests home at the end of the night with a sweet treat, and this DIY project helps with just that task! Whether you choose a tried-and-true family recipe, or find a recipe online, this favor will be a personal touch that your guests will love.

Here’s what you’ll need:


  1. Find a favorite hot cocoa recipe that can be made ahead of time (without the liquid, of course!), and print it on a recipe card. You can even coordinate your recipe card with your wedding invitations by using enclosure cards.
  2. Layer the ingredients in a clean Mason jar – this is a fun place to play with colors, by separating the sugar and cocoa powder.
  3. Secure the lid of the jar, and attach the colored craft paper circle to the top for an added pop of color. Attach the gift tag stickers to the front of the jar.
  4. Punch a hole in the recipe card, then loop a ribbon through the hole. Tie the ribbon around the neck of the jar to complete the gift.

Your guests will love this personalized treat, especially during the cold winter season.
