Santa Hat Snack Mix

Here's a fun recipe for a cute holiday snack mix, complete with Santa hats!  I gave these to all the staff I work with at my school, Ben's coworkers and our neighbors.

I got my idea from here.  I loved the Santa hats in her recipe but I wanted to change up the mix.

To start I melted a bowl of red chocolate melty discs.

Once the chocolate was ready i dipped the Bugles in it and scooped them out with a fork.

After letting them dry I dipped the bottoms in the chocolate again and then dipped them in white sprinkles.  Lastly, adding a mini marshmallow to the top to complete the hat.  Lay them on wax paper to dry.

Just one bag of Bugles made all this!  The bag felt so light when I bought it, so I bought 3 more, oops!  Guess I'll have to find something else to make with Bugles!

The hats turned out super cute and so tasty!

Next I made my own snack mix using store bought chex mix and caramel corn.  I needed a lot since I was making 30 jars, in the end I still had enough extra for a bowl to take to a party.

I bought the cute little jars at the Dollar Tree (I know you're all surprised).  Then I filled the jars up layer by layer sprinkling the M&Ms in so they wouldn't all sink to the bottom.

This snack mix was quite the hit!

I apologize for a lot of missing pictures, especially in older posts. I was using PhotoBucket to host my pictures, but they've changed their rules and no longer allow links to them.
