Santa Hat Party Mix

For the Santa Hats:
Red melting discs
Mini marshmallows
White sprinkles (nonpareils)

1.Melt the red discs in a double broiler (or microwave). Dip the bugles in the candy and set to dry on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Pour the nonpareils in a bowl. When the candy coating is set, dip the top point of the bugle into the red coating and place a mini marshmallow on the tip. Dip the bottom of the "hat" back in the melted candy, then dip in the sprinkles. Place back on a cookie sheet to set up.

For the chex mix:
1 1/2 C rice chex
1 1/2 C corn chex
2 C mini pretzels
1 C salted dry roasted peanuts
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1 to 2 C red and green chocolate m&m's
White chocolate for melting (or white candy discs)

1.Pour all of your ingredients except the m&m's on a large baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the mix. Stir mix and coat with chocolate. After it is dry, add the m&m's.And place Santa hats on top. Be careful not to break the hats.


  1. Love! Wish I would have made more. I ran out of white sprinkles. I think they could just be dipped in white candy melts though for the rim of the hat.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. That is so cute and clever. Love it!!
