Cakes, Favors & Gifts

Courtesy of Chocolate Gourmet

Don't let the name fool you. I found these chocolates, known as Ugly Truffles from Chocolate Gourmet, to be quite appetizing and presentable in their hand-rolled natural form. Chocolates don't need to be perfectly shaped to meet my approval and I think their imperfections make them seem that much more homemade. If nothing else, the assortment of cleverly named chocolates, such as homely hazelnut and morning after merlot, could serve as parting gifts to your wedding guests.

And if chocolates aren't your thing (they may not for an outdoor summer wedding favor) Chocolate Gourmet also produces Damn Good Cookies such as the yummy chubby wubby chocolate mini sandwich cookie and a rockabye raspberry sugar cookie with homemade raspberry preserves. The New York Times called them "cookies with a bit of swagger." —Beth Wilson
