Perfect Party Favors

By Sarah Lagrotteria

Aren’t these beautiful? My Aunt Nancy hosted a party for our out-of-town guests the night before our wedding at her beautiful apartment in downtown Chicago. She asked Angus and I to choose our favorite chocolate truffle flavors from Vosges Chocolates.  The two-truffle boxes were perfect party favors.

We chose the Gianduia truffle made of milk chocolate and hazelnut praline, my all-time fave flavor combo for anything sweet…

and Jazz, a dark chocolate truffle with ground chicory coffee.

So so good.

The best part?  Nancy had the Vosges signature purple boxes personalized with a line from the Philip Larkin poem that was being read at our ceremony the next day.

We keep the remaining boxes–empty since I finished off the truffles on the honeymoon– in a little compote in our kitchen cupboard.  Such a great reminder of a wonderful night!
