The Cutest Party Mix I've Ever Seen!

When I saw this the other day on one of my favorite baking blogs Cookies and Cups,  I just knew I had to try it!  I actually had trouble falling asleep that night because I was so excited to get the stuff to make it.  I know...get a life, right?!

You can read how to make the mix if you want at Cookies and Cups.  I couldn't find the little balls for the brim of Santa's hat, so I just dipped them in white chocolate.  The hats are caramel bugels dipped in red chocolate.

Here's how mine turned out.  Not as nice as Cookies and Cups...but they're the experts!

I made some for Santa too!

We're busy over here...getting the last little bit done.
Still no snow...but I hear there's a chance for us on Christmas Eve!
Two more day until Christmas!

you are much more patient that I, I don't know if I could hand dip all of those hats, but boy does it look adorable!

These are adorable!!! I have to try it :-) I am hoping no snow for Christmas Eve as we will be traveling, but i did hear we could get a storm Christmas Day, that would be nice we wouldn't have anywhere to be this year but home :-)

Happy holidays!!

I can always count on you, kerri, for the cutest ideas ever ... the filled gingerbread man hostess/teacher gifts from the other day, the reindeer dust, the "thankful turkey" teacher gifts, where does your genius ever end?! It's the cutest party mix ever!!

Merry Christmas!

That is too cute!

I think yours looks better! I can't believe how much work that looks like, though! Too bad they don't make red/white candy corns. That's what i thought the hats were made out of.

I also made frango fudge and drizzled green candy melts over them... to die for!! I might have to make them again for New Years!! ;) I need to make your truffles still!! ;)
