Wedding favours can come in all shapes, sizes and forms. I have probably seen hundreds if not thousands of ideas, which I found helpful yet tricky when it came finding something personal and unique for our wedding. I have seen s’mores or marshmallow toasting kits a few times at weddings I’ve featured and always loved the idea. So when we plumped for our campsite venue with huge fire pit taking centre stage, it seemed the perfect choice.
Now I have created a fair few DIY Tutorials for the blog including wedding favour DIYs. But it’s another thing to actually make 100 or so. It really is a labour of love. These s’mores are really simple to put together and make for a lovely keep sake for your guests. The kids at our reception loved roasting and eating the marshmallows and many of our nearest and dearest said they enjoyed them at home.
I thought today I would show you the process of making our marshmallow roasting kits in case you were thinking of doing the same for your own celebration.
Top Tip. Be sure to tell your venue about your plans, our fire was so hot that it was tricky to roast our marshmallows. But the venue did actually have roasting poles we could have used.
What You Need
→ Skewers (we displayed ours in a jar on the table)
→ Cellophane bags
→ Stickers & Pen
→ Candle/Fire for toasting
As I am coeliac our ingredients were gluten free. We sourced many of our items via eBay and Amazon.
I’d recommend before beginning sitting down together with a little production line for pure efficiency. It’s a good idea to experiment with the look of the stack you are creating before settling on the order too.
Open up your bag and place the biscuits in the bottom in a neat arrangement.
We then placed 4 chocolate squares on to the biscuit base of the package.
Pop your marshmallow on top.
As carefully as possible, fold your bag to secure your treats.
Stick down the bag with your pre drawn labels. I chose kraft paper hearts with a hand illustrated monogram I drew on each label.
Be sure to safely store until the big day. We left ours as late as possible to ensure freshness.
You could pop yours on your place settings or display like we did in a barrel we borrowed from Fleur De Lace with a rustic sign she made for us.
