The Christmas Chocolate

I have to admit that every December I get totally addicted to falalala lifetime and other super cheesy Christmas movies.  All of them seem to be The Christmas _______(fill in the blank) or A (blank) for Christmas.  There are Christmas shoes, trees, miracles and people get Dad’s, boyfriends, grandparents and whatnot.  I have not seen a single candy oriented christmas movie.  I know that a Candy theme is not very romantic, but it is pretty darn true to life.


Now that we’re splitting Christmas between two families we get twice the stocking stuffers which means this year alone we received

  • Lindt Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar (2.5 servings)
  • Lindt Mint Dark Chocolate Bar (2.5 servings)
  • Terry’s Milk Chocolate Orange (4 servings)
  • Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange (4 servings)
  • 2 Boxes of Animal Crackers (4 servings)
  • 1 box Godiva chocolate (8 pieces)
  • 1 box Lindt truffles (16 truffles)
  • 2 sandwich bags miscellaneous holiday chocolates


I looked at all of this chocolate and was figuring out how to pack it in our luggage so it would be ok.  I should have known that this wasn’t a problem.  Dan had finished one box of animal crackers and a bag of holiday chocolates before we finished opening gifts. 


The other bag of chocolates and box of animal crackers were devoured on our drive from Rockville to Pittsburgh. (I only had three pieces of chocolates and the head off of each of the animal crackers) 


I bet you can guess where this story is going.  It is exactly one week from Christmas and the only chocolate we have left is a quarter of the milk chocolate orange.



I’m proud to say that I have not had very much of our chocolate stash.  Dan claims that he was rescuing me from chocolate jumping into my mouth.  What a gentleman!


What is your favorite stocking stuffer treat?  Do you save it or devour it immediately?
