Eight Little Bonbons - a Christmas story

Lets sit down by the fire and I'll tell you a story of Eight Little Bonbons.  

Once upon a time there were eight Little Bonbons        nestled in their cups Coated in Chocolate, topped with drizzles and nuts.   Along came Santa with a tall glass of milk  Who sat down beside them in his stockings of silk.

With no-one to tell him about what was what
He cut them all open to check out their guts
Although the cookie dough made him smile
The peanut butter sent him to the sleigh for another pile

He brought in more packages and sat down for another                The Chocolate Kahlua gave him a giggle to smother                         So he grabbed up the carrot cake and said with a smile               
"That will take me on at least another mile"
Those little bonbons stuck in his head                                         And surely that family must still be in bed                                         He came back 3 more times later that night                                       …

Poker night

Extra points if you know whose hand this is and what it is called.  All the poker chips and cards are fondant, the cake is spice cake with a pumpkin swiss meringue buttercream.
