I don’t know about you, but I always have at least one person on my Christmas gift list who is really hard to shop for. GODIVA is helping me this year with their GODIVA Gift Boxes you can find at Walmart. Yes, Walmart! I feel like I’m there at least once a week lately. Easy!
The 9-piece box contains that fabulous one-of-a-kind taste of GODIVA at a price that won’t break your Christmas shopping budget.
You turn down the holiday candy aisle at Walmart and the GODIVA 9-piece Gift Boxes shine brightly and boldly in their gold wrapping. Then the difficult part comes when you have to decide on a flavor. With that price, why not buy a bunch? This is GOOD chocolate.
This cupcake recipe idea uses the delectable assorted chocolate caramels.
