Before I made the hats, I took pretzels, chex, and nuts, and drizzled the top with melted chocolate, and then toss them to coat. I added M&M's, and then I went to work on the Santa hats.
The original site suggested using a bugel that already had a coating so they are sturdier. I grabbed caramel bugels, white sprinkles, marshmallows, and red melting chocolate.
I melted the red chocolate 40 seconds at time, stirring, and then heating until it was runny.
I then popped the bugels it, and tapped the excess chocolate off with a fork.
I sent my chocolate coated bugels on wax paper, and pressed a marshmallow to the top.
When the hats dried, I redipped the bigger end in the chocolate (I had to reheat mine a little), and then I dipped the bottom in sprinkles.
I let them dry, and then tossed them with the rest of my mix.
I bagged them up, and called it a day.
