there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

hey mambo, mambo italiano: wedding favor or everyday treat

i walked by these pretty italian treats in whole foods yesterday and remembered watching good ol' giada de laurentiis use them in several recipes.
i went back to my archives and found the following recipe for chocolate amaretti cake. how scrumptious does that sound?

not only are these treats delicious dipped in your favorite coffee or better yet crumbled on top of some creamy gelato, BUT they are simply delicious all on their own.

i love the idea of incorporating these beautifully wrapped cookies into a wedding favor. you could throw a few of these pastel beauties into a clear cellophane bag, wrap with a ribbon and voila! you've got yourself a pretty, edible wedding favor.

check out the fantastic packaging below! i'm thinking about buying a canister just to add a little something italiano to our kitchen.
