Homemade Red, White, And Blue Chocolate Star Wedding Favors

It's July 4th, which is making me think of red, white, and blue wedding favors. They can be really festive if you're having a July 4th wedding. And, if you've been around here a while, you know I'm a big fan of edible wedding favors. So, of course, I think these red, white, and blue chocolate star wedding favors are perfect.

You can make them at home yourself whenever you have time, then save them until your wedding day.

I made them using a star-shaped silicone mold. If you're making these for your wedding, I would recommend picking up multiple molds. It would take you a really long time to make enough for all your guests if you could only make a couple at a time.

Now, small aside: I'm making them red, white, and blue in this tutorial because I'm posting this on July 4th. Honestly, you can make them any colors you want.

Using the garlic grater side of a cheese grater, shave the blue then red candy melts into the cavities of the star-shaped mold.

You don't want to completely fill the bottom with shavings. You do want to see the white through some of it.

And don't worry if you end up getting some of the shavings on the side. They'll add to the character of these.

Melt the white chocolate chips in a microwavable-safe bowl. I suggest regular chocolate chips for this instead of white candy melts. Personally,  I don't love the taste of candy melts (although they have gotten better recently), so I vote for white chocolate chips instead.

Melt them for 30 seconds, then stir. Put them back in the microwave for another 30 seconds, then stir. Continue this until the chocolate chips are completely melted.

Spoon a dollop of melted white chocolate into each star-shaped cavity in the mold. Don't overfill them because then the bottom of these won't sit flat. You're putting them in a plastic bag, so it's not the biggest deal if they're not perfectly flat, but I really am a perfectionist when it comes to anything wedding.

Bounce the silicone mold on your countertop a few times. That will flatten out the melted white chocolate.

If you're like me and you were messy when you were shaving the red and blue candy melts, the extra shavings along the top of the mold will fall into your chocolate when you're bouncing the mold. I think it's okay but if you're even more of a perfectionist than I am, you'll want to wipe the mold off before scooping the white chocolate.

Put them in the fridge to cool completely before popping them out of the mold. They'll come out so easily and without any real effort. Put them in a bag to sit in your fridge until you're ready to package them.

When you are, cut thin, long strips of red and blue card stock. Fold them back and forth, like an accordion. Then, cut them every two or so inches to create paper shred (or you could just purchase paper shred if you don't feel like making it).

Add the paper shred to the bottom of a plastic treat bag.

Put two or three red, white, and blue chocolate stars into the bag. Tie it with a white ribbon.

Place one at each guest's seat at your wedding.
