Teacher Gift Part 2 (Santa Hats)

Santa Chow!!!

I don't remember exactly how I found THIS post, but when I saw it, I KNEW I HAD to make them!!!

Her  How-To called for the candy melts, but I used almond bark and tinted it because that's what I had
(If you know me and there is an option of buying something or being a tight-wad  frugal, I tend to lean on the cheaper side!)

Here we Go!! Let's make us some SANTA HATS!!!

Almond Bark and Red Icing tint (NOT FOOD COLORING, THAT HAS WATER IN IT) or buy the RED candy melts, BUGLES( Caramel or Chocolate Peanut Butter), MINI MARSHMALLOWS, WHITE SPRINKLES(nonpareils)

Melt your almond bark and tint with the red
(When I was melting the almond bark, I added some Crisco so that it wasn't so thick!)

Dip the BUGLES into the melted almond bark and lay out onto waxed paper for about 10 minutes, until they 'set'

Have your marshmallows and nonperils ready

Re-dip the tip in your melted almond bark and stick a marshmallow on
then re-dip the open end in almond bark and dip it in the sprinkles
Lay out on waxed paper to dry

Easy-Peasy! Right?

Bag them up with the Puppy Chow! and give away as SANTA CHOW!

Visiting from for the love of blogs fun post. This is totally adorable. What a fun way to jazz up puppy chow to make it feel like a more interesting gift.
