Santa Hat Chex Mix

Santa Chex Mix

{Feel free to play around with the ingredients and make it your own!}
3 cups mini pretzels
1/2 cup craisins
1 cup salted dry roasted peanuts
2 cups Rice Chex
2 cups holiday colored M&M’s
8 oz. white chocolate for melting
Santa Hats (see directions below)
Put all your ingredients, EXCEPT M&M’s and santa hats, in a large bowl.  Melt your white chocolate according to package directions and drizzle over the pretzel mix. Stir until evenly coated with chocolate.  Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. When chocolate is set, sprinkle M&M’s and Santa hats over the mix.
How to make the Santa Hats:

What you will need:
Caramel Bugles
Red melting disks (you can find this at the craft store)
Mini Marshmallows
White nonpareils

Melt the candy melts according to directions on package.  I added a little shortening to help thin the melted candy – about 1-2 Tablespoons. 

Dip the bugles and set them on parchment paper to set up.  Re-dip the bottoms of the bugle “hats” and dip into the white sprinkles. Flip to the other side, re-dip the top of the hat and press on a mini marshmallow.
