This idea was a Pinterest find from here. I thought it was just so happy looking and the Santa hats are definitely unique! Apparently, Bugles aren't sold in this part of Canada any more so I made a little trip down to Point Roberts to pick up a couple of bags while I was out that way.

Santa Hats (peanut butter chocolate Bugles, red candy melts, mini marshmallows, white candy melts, white sparking sugar)
I didn't coat the pretzels and Corn Chex with white candy coating, as suggested in the original. I figured it was all sweet enough.
To make the Santa Hats, I held the tip of the Bugle and dipped them in the melted red candy coating.
I'll be serving this mix at my cookie exchange party tomorrow night but I saved some little bags for the boys and for a colleague who shared childhood bugle memories with me!
And this fun Santa party mix is the final installment of my holiday treat week posts!
