The products listed next would make great stocking fillers for the chocolate loving foodie.

First up we have the Dairy Milk Winter Gingerbread which as you may have guessed is gingerbread pieces in a Cadbury Dairy Milk bar. Then there is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate Robins with Daim pieces inside. Next is the Cadbury Mini Snow Balls which are delicious milk chocolate balls encased in crisp sugar shells dusted with icing sugar – they’re yummy and can also be using for decorating festive bakes. A favourite of mine is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Winter Wonderland Edition made up of mini white and milk chocolate tree-shaped chunks! So lovely. And for the little foodies there are two money boxes containing delicious Cadbury chocolate - one contains Cadbury Dairy Milk Freddo Faces and the other Cadbury Dairy Milk Button.
