  1. Donut Bar: Whether you decide to stack them high or create a wall, guests will want to dive into your donut display. With chocolate frosted, sprinkles, glazed and a variety of other flavors, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. A fun display like this, will have you saying you "Donut" want the night to end ;)

2. Chocolate Bar: For all you chocoholics out there this dessert bar is a must. Create a spread of all your favorites since you simply can't choose one. Provide little bags for your guests to fill up on their favored chocolaty treats. With various candies, brownies, truffles, and more even Willy Wonka would be jealous of your setup. You can even create printable candy bar wrappers to customize the bars which also make for a great wedding favor.

It doesn't have to stop at classic chocolate chip, go for a combo of crowd favorites such as double-chocolate, snickerdoodle, white-chocolate macadamia nut, and peanut butter.
