Chocolate Smiles hand dips these Rice Krispy Treats in chocolate then decorates each face.

We normally roll out our Five Faves on Mondays, but with a lot of people wrapping up their holiday shopping this weekend we wanted to post our Five Favorite local stocking stuffers now! 

Chocolate-covered Rick Krispy treats (Chocolate Smiles in Cary) - We fell in love with these little snowmen during our gift guide post about local chocolatiers. For $4.50, these little guys are available in milk, dark and white chocolate. And they are super tasty.

iPhone wallets and PBR-inspired Beer koozies (Holly Aiken in Raleigh) - These wallets are stylish and a perfect fit for your iPhone. They cost $24 each. The koozies go for $6 each.

BBQ lollipops and Moonshine Crunch (Southern Season in Chapel Hill) - These items are tasty and fun. The lollipops can be found in BBQ and BBQ Bacon flavors in the candy section of the store. A few feet away, the Moonshine Crunch is a great blend of peanuts, mini pretzels and crispy squares dipped in white chocolate. 


Palsie's Popcorn (Raleigh) - You really can't go wrong with any of the flavors here, but we suggest checking out the mac and cheese, eggnog and barbecue. 

N.C. Education Lottery instant scratch tickets - Scratch and hope to win a few bucks to use in the new year!
