Or maybe your groom made himself Lego cuff-links. Regardless, you're thinking to yourself, "Self, what's the DIY perfect wedding favor to go with these Legos?" Answer: Chocolate Legos! OBT member Shandriz made these for her wedding, simply by pouring melted chocolate into a Lego ice tray. So easy! So DIY! So very Lego!

You can also get lego cake/jelly trays as well 🙂 Reply I am totally stealing this ever-so-perfect idea!! (Weekend agenda: 1: Purchase thank you cards; 2: Trip to Downtown Disney's Lego Store!) Reply Genius! Reply I can't help but brag about my hubby's 1st anniversay gift to me a few years ago: he took one of our wedding photos and made it into a lego mosaic (photo here: http://pixinbrix.com/images/example1-large.jpg — looks kind of funny close up but step back and there we are)! He didn't build it (because he knew I'd want to help do that), but created a blueprint and bought all of the bricks. We then put it together paint-by-numbers style. It was possibly the Best Gift Ever. Reply I might have to make some of these Lego chocolates for my husband… Maybe I can even do colors! Reply This is so genius and amazing. Reply When I saw these on Shandriz's page I just HAD to show my FH. Reply Sweet! I think this is my favorite favor yet. I also HAD to show my FH too! Reply That's awesome! My fiance and I love LEGOs (we have a side table made out of them in our den) and this would be a great thing to incorporate into our "anything we like goes" wedding. Also, to commenter Cathy, that's an AWESOME anniversary gift and bonus points to him for knowing you'd want to help put it together. I might steal that idea, too! Reply When the link said "Lego Cuff Links", I was expecting the little blocks. Using actual Lego people for cuff links is an AWESOME idea. Essentially, anything that involves Legos is awesome, so I love the idea of chocolate Legos, Jello Legos, Lego pictures… all of it! Reply Very cute! Cheeky, but not cheesy. Love it. Reply I made lego cufflinks out of the little squares. . . in our wedding colors! super easy. I'll find a picture somewhere. yep. nerds. Reply For those doing a lego theme– or who just like legos– I should also mention that along with the chocolate legos we purchased legs, torsos, accessories and heads of a bunch of little lego people and let everyone put together their own and it went over REALLY well, especially considering how traditional his half of the family is. Reply U are a Lego genius!!! Reply For the commenter who said "Maybe I can even do color!", there are a few easy ways. In order of increasing difficulty: 1) Use candy melt, available at your local craft stores in the cake and candy section. It's fake chocolate, but it's sweet and brightly colored. You can also flavor it with candy flavorings. It's supremely easy to use; just melt and pour. 2) Temper white chocolate, and add in candy color, available online and sometimes in that same craft store. You can look up tempering instructions online. You won't be able to get dark colors, but brights and pastels are easy. 3) Coat the insides of the molds or the outsides of the finished product with colored cocoa butter, available online in hundreds of colors. I like the stuff from http://www.chefrubber.com. It's laborious to use, but has a glorious color selection. Also, if your legos turn strangely to powder, you're having heat issues. Fill the molds halfway, wait for them to set, then fill in the other half. Learned that one the hard way… Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
