Gimme Sâ€™more! Entertain wedding guests with a gourmet version of the sweet marshmallow treat
written by Daisy Bainum
It only seems fitting that a couple who met at camp would find success with a campfire goodie. So it goes for Haypenny Confections founders Danielle and Tanner Loveless. The pair fell for each other one summer at a camp in their native Utah, and afterward spent a good part of their courtship making flavored marshmallows and concocting honey graham crackers from scratch. After their wedding in the Holy City last May, the Lovelesses moved here to begin their marriage and to start a food venture, too.
Haypennyâ€™s reinvention of the classic treatâ€”a graham cracker, chocolate, and roasted marshmallow â€śsandwichâ€ťâ€”begins with homemade scalloped-edged graham cracker discs and includes â€™mallows ranging from vanilla to champagne-strawberry, bourbon-praline, Boone Hall Farmsâ€™ strawberry, and much more.
Besides selling ready-made kits, Haypenny sets up sâ€™mores bars at events, too. Opt for a staffed bar and fire pit or purchase the fixinâ€™s for a DIY approach. No matter the setup, Danielle says itâ€™s all about interacting. â€śThe social experience of roasting marshmallows is an important part of our company that we want to share with couples,â€ť she says.
All products are made to order days before serving so order in advance. For more information, call (843) 732-1555 or visit www.HayPennyConfections.com.
