You all know how much I love snack mix! So, of course I had to share with you this fun idea for a Christmas snack mix. This Santa hat snack mix is easy to make but looks like you put a lot of time and effort into making it. Not only is it a fun dish to bring to your next holiday party, it also makes a great gift!
This cute snack mix is extra simple when you mix the Bugle Santa hats with pre-items, which is what I did. Check out the tutorial for the Santa hats below, them mix them with some Chex Mix Muddy Buddies and Christmas M&Ms.
To make the Santa hat snack mix, start with regular Bugles and some red candy melts. Melt the candy according to the package’s directions, then dip the Bugles into the melted candy. I used a fork to mix them around to make sure both sides are coated. Then, set them on a cooling rack to dry.
While you’re waiting for the candy to harden, prepare a bowl filled with white nonpareils. Then grab a handful of mini marshmallows. You may also need to remelt your candy melts if the leftover melts in the bowl have hardened.
Now it’s time to assemble your Santa hats. First, dip the wide end in your melted red candies, then dip it into your bowl of nonpareils. Flip the Bugle over and dip the small end in your melted candy, then press a mini marshmallow on the top. Place the hats back on the cooling rack to allow the candy to set again.
To make my Santa hat snack mix, I mixed my Bugle Santa hats with a bag of Chex Mix Muddy Buddies and a bag of red, white, and green M&Ms. If you’re up for making some homemade snack mix, check out this recipe from Chex.
