A Hot Chocolate Favor
So it's getting chilly at night these days. The time has changed, the days are shorter, and you've probably switched to flannel sheets like we have. I know, I live in California, but we still get cold here.
If you're getting married this winter, you may be considering a winter theme. Maybe you're just thinking about the comfort of your guests on a chilly winter night. Whatever the case, why not help your guests get cozy after the affair with favors of organic and fair trade hot chocolate?
I love hot chocolate, hot chocolate with marshmallows, even Mexican hot chocolate. With a few cookies for dipping and a movie to watch, I'm set for the night.
There are a few companies out there providing hot chocolate made with organic and (so very important) fair-trade cocoa, but one caught my eye because of their willingness to share with their cocoa growers: Deansbeans.com
. Now, their hot cocoa mix is not only well-intentioned, it's also very affordable. Half of their profits are returned to the growers!
I'm not sure how it tastes, but I'm hoping to try it and get back to you. Dean, if you're reading this, I'd love to taste a cup!
The Gorgeous and Green Events
wedding or party favor suggestion would be to find some small recycled paper bags and twist ties and measure out a serving of the mix for each guest. Here I cut out some snowflakes from leftover white fabric I had and attached it to the front and used reused ribbons to accent.
You could even go one step further and put it in a glass jar with some marshmallows so they can see the mouth-watering treat. You could personalize it with a cute tag with your guest's name on one side and the cocoa directions on the other. And don't forget to tell them it's not only organic, but fair-trade!
