Warning. This post might have you lick your computer screen. Christmas is not Christmas without chocolate overflowing on our treat table. In my case it is almost empty again. Everyone in my family loves chocolate especially the three vultures. Normally I would not give it to my youngest daughter but she has to have what her big sister is having. There is not way around it. The one chocolate store they all love to go and visit is the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Store. The place that always makes my mouth drool. Check out their Christmas collection because there is something there for everyone.
Need ideas for Stocking Stuffers? Check out the traditional Christmas Balls ($7oz of milk chocolate) that tastes so good that you could never have only one. My girls have been begging me for another one then again for another. I had to limit them to three each. They are hovering over me to see if I wave and give them more. This package is great for sharing among co-workers, class mates, or all to yourself if you don't want to share.
If you want to jazz it up a bit, the Christmas Tree (3.4 oz, milk, white, or dark) is also a great idea. This tasty solid chocolate shaped into a tree is perfect to include as a decorative piece to attach on the present. The recipient won't be incline to share like the Christmas Balls. However this is much better than a bow.
A great mini gift idea or another stocking stuffer would be the Chocolate Pretzel Pack. It contains 6 Pretzel dipped in chocolate and rolled in candy cane bits. This is a great Christmas gift idea who likes sweet, salty, and peppermint taste. Perfect to give to someone like a school bus driver, school secretary, and even to the lunchroom teacher.
If you are looking for something cute and is the "bomb", try treating someone to the Candy Cane Santa Bomb as another stocking stuffer idea. It is very hard to describe it but I will try my best. It is shaped into a ball, almost like a truffle and inside contains with candy cane bits inside. It taste so good and I wish I had more. Make sure you purchase a few since they are hard to resist. You can't have just one.
You can't forget those who celebrate Chanukah because Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory made this 4oz hollow milk chocolate Driedle just for the occasion. This treat should be included in their driedle game. It would be a great prize I bet everyone wants to get their hands on this chocolate.
Sometimes giving someone the same box of chocolate might be redundant. Image if a teacher with 30 kids give her chocolates and it might be all the same/similar. So here is some great ideas I think the receiver will enjoy.
The 11oz Clusters Christmas Tree (white chocolate drizzled over milk) would be a nice little gift to give or to keep at home. I think it could be a great center piece at a Christmas party if it lasted long enough for the evening. Guests will be breaking a piece of it off throughout the night and it will be gone before you know it. It is that good. The top is shredded coconut mixed with chocolate. The rest of the body is solid milk chocolate with a hint of dried cranberries. This did not barely last a day so purchase plenty because they will be eaten before you know it. If someone received this all wrapped up, they would not have guessed it was chocolate.
Candy Cane Bark has become a tradition for me. I seem to purchase this for many years. My daughter loves eating chocolate and candy canes and loves to eat these together. Who could say no to a large bar of milk chocolate with a layer of crumbled candy canes? Another chocolate treat my daughter kept on eating. I think I have 6"1 male mouse who also has been nibbling it away and he thinks I would not notice.
If you have someone who is nut crazy like me, I bet the 18oz Nut & Brittle Tray would be the perfect gift you might be looking for. My whole family including my mom and brother loves nuts and chocolate. This tray consist of 6.5" small tray of 6oz deluxe brittle, 6oz bag of mixed nuts, 5.5 oz chocolate covered almond clusters and 3 pieces of chocolate foiled bells. It was all good. After a few days there is barely anything left. I know a few people in my life would love to have this. This would also be great to serve at a Christmas party. Purchase enough for the evening and all you have to do is unwrap it. Your are all set, don't even need to find a plate because it comes with a tray to use to display the goodies.
Rocky has gift packs that starts at C$29.99 that has a combination of items the receiver will enjoy.
The final verdict is that my family and I absolutely adored every chocolate that came to my house. It was the hardest to pick and choose when selecting which one to sample. Since my family and I devoured them in record time I have no choice but to restock with more Rocky Mountain chocolates. Hop over to Rocky Mountain chocolate factory store and there is so much selection that you will sure not be disappointed and there is a possibility that you might pick up something for yourself.
There is a Christmas promotion that ends December 25th that inside in selected 14oz boxed chocolate might contain a Rocky Card value between $10 to $100. Good Luck!
The infamous Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory would like to offer two of my lucky readers a $25 gift card each to their store. That is chocolate heaven.
This contest will run from November 27th to December 25th, 2013 (midnight EST). Winners, You have 72 hours to reply. You must be 18+ Canadians Only. Good Luck!
