Homemade Gift: Santa Party Mix

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
I saw the idea for making this trail mix last year via Craft Gossip.  It's so cute.  I died.  Then I asked my dog to resusitate me, and I got to work.  The original link is here.  We made this for the office last year.  Heather had these super cute pails from the Target Dollar spot (I've seen people make pails like this, but it was certainly easier to buy).  I actually anticipated this would be a lot more difficult that it actually was! 
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.

I'm Tonia Anderson by name, I am from the States, Suffolk county to be precise. I am here today to testify of the good works LORD ZAKUZA has done in my life, I never knew great men still exist until I found him. I have been suffering from heart break for the past 3 years, my partner who I invested on cheated on me with my best friend on my matrimonial bed, I was yet to recover from this terrible shock until I meant LORD ZAKUZA, a friend of mine directed me to him , I doubted him at first but as things went further, I had to give him my trust and did exactly as he told me to do. Ever since then, I have been happy all my life and my love life with my partner has been so wonderful. You can also need his help and here's his contact information.

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
