Actually, if you made the candies just before shipping and sealed them securely, I don't think you should have a problem with any of the ingredients.

For the more "chancy" ingredients (obviously nothing frozen/refrigerated), you might want to use Priority Mail but I've shipped all kinds of candies/cookies all over the U.S. and Europe with no problem.

Although it sounds awesome, unfortunately I have no liqueur and I have already reached my budget on baking groceries....
Great idea though!
