DIY | chocolate tasting favor jars

Share this project

How cute are these!!?? I love these little glass favor jars that are sold at Michael’s in the wedding section. I kept staring at them for weeks thinking about what I was going to create and while I was making some mini-cupcakes – it hit me. If the mini-cupcake liners could fit in these glass jars, I could do chocolate tasting! Another thing that I LOVE is chocolate tasting – so I am loving this favor – as I am sure any party guests will. So here we go: do-it-yourself mini-glass jars as chocolate tasting wedding (or bridal shower) favors:

  • Mini-glass favor jars 
  • mini-cupcake liners (I got mine from my favorite Etsy seller, Cupcake Social)
  • small circle labels (the labels are from Paper-Source)
  • your top three favorite chocolate bars!

supplies for chocolate tasting wedding favors

First, wash your hands. Next, start by cutting up all your chocolates…

…make sure to keep your flavors separate. Using a large serrated knife works best for cutting chocolate.

Figure out what chocolate you want your guests to taste first… second and third. Usually lightest in color like white or milk to the darkest in color like my 85% dark chocolate. Pick your favorites.

With your first cup, gently push it all the way to the bottom of the jar. Then insert the appropriate chocolate.

Keep doing the same with each layer. Making sure you are adding them gently.

I chose to put the lighter cupcake liner in between the two darker colors purely for looks, it had nothing to do with the type of chocolate that was to be tasted.

When you have all three chocolate inside, close up the jar. The glass jar works so perfectly for chocolate tasting since the glass will keep the chocolate nice and fresh.

Next is applying your labels. You can download this layout that I created {here}. The labels are from Paper-Source, they are the 1.25″ round address labels – 48 come on one sheet. If you download my template all you have to do is put the labels in your printer and hit print. But you could also create your own!

That’s it! Pretty easy… but so darn cute!
