Santa Hats and Mix

(also known as “ohsure, i’ve got PLENTY of time for these shenanigans, the day before christmas eve”)

suuuuure, lemme drop my kiddo off for a short day of kindergarten and then go get supplies before i have to go back and get her.  because i’ve got NOTHING else going on.

so the hats – they are bugles dipped in red chocolate, white nonpareils with a marshmallow poked on the point.  flippin ADORABLE.

and quite tasty.

then in another bowl i mixed pretzels, corn chex, peanuts, craisins, and more bugles… just whatever was kicking around.  i melted some white chocolate and put it in the bowl and stirred it around.  after it dried on a cookie sheet, i broke up the mix and added the santa hats and holiday m&ms.  adorable and delicious.

aww, yeah.

i put a nice portion in some baggies and we’ll share them with some friendies tomorrow… if it lasts that long!

i got the info and the hairbrained idea right here last night, and i couldn’t think of anything else til i actually made them.  what an awesome and super cute idea!

    Absolutely so darn cute and I can imagine how good they are with the salt, sugar and crunch combination. I’ll have to remember that for next Christmas.

    The hats are stinking cute…but VERY HARD TO ‘ASSEMBLE!
    I attempted this recipe more than once because it is so cute!
    After the third attempt, I gave up on the hats.
    This recipe is only for those who have lots of patience, and know the basics to making candy..
