Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and it should not only be special but also unforgettably perfect.

There are a few deliciously decadent desserts that are so beautiful and impressive that your guests will not stop talking about them for decades to come. The simple and cheap deserts that look like and taste a million bucks are the best ones to focus on. Not only will these desserts knock your guests socks off they are so simple to make it can be a great way to get your wedding party involved in the event planning in the days before the big event. The best part it will also save you a ton of money.

Not only is this a great way to serve your guests and keep your budget in tact it is also a great way to incorporate the wedding colors. Wedding colors are a great way to theme your wedding the more you can incorporate the wedding colors the more your big day will look like a million bucks. Keeping in the same colors is a big challenge but there are many affordable ways to do just that.

Dark Chocolate Pretzels

1 bag Dark Chocolate

1 bag Pretzel Sticks

1 bag mini pretzels 

1 package dark chocolate chips

1/2 package almond bark

food coloring in wedding colors

wax paper

serving trays

plastic wrap

Pastry bag and smallest tip for decorating

Melt dark chocolate in a double broiler stirring until smooth. Once the dark chocolate is melted completely with no lumps dip your pretzels in the dark chocolate and lay them out on sheets of wax paper to letting them cool.

Next melt your almond bark until smooth. Once all the lumps are out remove from heat and add your food coloring mix well to make one or more wedding colors. If you need two color simply split the batch of almond bark into two bowl them color working quickly before the almond bark cools.

Using your pastry bag and small tip fill bag with almond bark. Using your pastry bag drizzle your color across your pretzels to decorate or make a tick tack toe design or any you would like have fun with this. They will look and taste like a million bucks.

Once they cool completely you can place them into beautiful serving trays and cover with plastic wrap until the big event. I would only make these two days ahead but they will keep well longer than that.

Chocolate Covered Peanut butter Balls


12 oz creamy peanut butter

1 package 16 oz powder sugar

1 stick butter softened

1 package 12 oz semisweet chocolate

1 tsp vanilla or to taste

wax paper

plastic wrap

serving trays

Tooth picks

Melon baller

Pastry bag

Almond bark

Food coloring



Mix the powdered sugar, butter and vanilla with the peanut butter mix well. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler until smooth. Using your melon baller scoop out peanut butter just to the top of the melon baller. Form the peanut butter mixture into a perfect ball and lay out on wax sheets and place on your serving tray in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to chill. Using your tooth picks to pick up peanut butter balls dip them slowly in melted chocolate slowly spin around to cover completely. Using a new tooth pick for each peanut butter ball will help keep the chocolate from clumping up. Once you have the peanut butter balls dipped place them back on wax paper sheet to cool.

Next melt your almond bark until smooth. Once all the lumps are out remove from heat and add your food coloring mix well to make one or more wedding colors. If you need two color simply split the batch of almond bark into two bowl them color working quickly before the almond bark cools.
