Top Five Edible Stocking Stuffers From Chocolate to Liquor

Who doesn't

like to receive sweet treats in their Christmas stockings? They  should taste right and embody Christmas cheer.

Classic Candy Canes

Admit it, once a year you like peeling

back the plastic wrapper and sucking on that red and white

peppermint stick.

Ferrero Rocher Chocolate

The spherical shape. The gold foil

wrapper. The little stamp of elegance. These luxurious Italian

chocolates, made by the producer of Nutella, are unmistakable treat. They can be found at most grocery stores and pharmacies, and are rather inexpensive.

Franchise Coffee Shop Gift Card

Without naming

names, you know that if you see a certain franchise coffee shop's

gift card in your stocking, you're going to use it in the next week.

It's a guilty pleasure for all of us. Go ahead. Place an order for a "grande" or "venti."

Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Preferably milk or

dark chocolate covered pretzels, but if white chocolate is more to

your liking, so be it. Chocolate-covered anything makes

for an excellent find on Christmas morning. Check out amazon.com for all sorts of chocolate-covered pretzel gift baskets for under $20.

Mini Liquor Bottles

If you're pining

for relief from the sights and sounds of festive,

familial Christmas cheer, nothing will satisfy your craving like liquor. For a discrete escape, keep the mini bottles

hidden in the stocking and tote it around the house. Just about any liquor you can think of can be found here.
