Inspired by Cookies & Cups, via Grace Wuensche, to make a Santa Party Mix:
The Santa hats are a little time consuming, but they're very easy to make. In fact, the hardest part was actually finding Bugles for the hats since my local stores don't seem to stock them a lot. I had to have a little extra help from an elf to locate them. For the snack mix, I used pretzels, Rice Chex, almonds, and Whoppers instead of the original recipe since we have to keep ours peanut-free. It would have been more colorful if we could have used M&Ms, but even the plain ones are processed with peanuts, so they're a no-no for us. I really miss Hershey's Kissables because they were a tasty and safe alternative to M&Ms, but they're no longer made. Regardless, the mix was a big hit!
