  Virginia-based Gearharts chocolates Fine chocolates has some irresistible treats for stocking stuffers, party favors or anytime indulgence.

For wine lovers, an excellent stocking stuffer is Pod and Vine, a box of four bonbons. The pod refers to the cacao; the vine is the wine that infuses the ganache.

It’s not just any wine: It’s Cabernet Franc from Virginia’s highly regarded Barboursville Vineyards.

Four boxed bonbons are $8.00 at GearhartsChocolates.com; nine pieces are $20.00.

We’re also fond of the Pistachio Toffee, eight pieces of buttery toffee with roasted pistachios, enrobed in bittersweet chocolate ($8.00).

For a full-size gift, another great gift is a Top Pick From Last Year, Chocolate Peanut Butter Pups. That’s pups, not cups: The pieces are decorated to look like dog heads.

The milk chocolate bonbons are filled with silky chocolate ganache, which is lightly infused with handmade peanut butter.

 

And they’re guilt-free: Five percent of sales of Peanut Butter Pups is donated to Companions for Heroes, a not-for-profit organization that matches rescue pets as companion animals to our nation’s wounded veterans.
A box of nine pieces is $22.00 at Gearharts’ online store.
