Edible Santa Hat Craft!

Christmas is indeed over but we needed to share this crafty recipe with you from one of  our favorite cousins, Molly Kenney! This would also be a festive New Years snack.

Here is what you’ll need:

Red Melting disks
Mini marshmallows
White sprinkles

Melt the candy melts, along with a tablespoon of shortening (to help thin the melted candy), in 30 second intervals on half power in your microwave until melted. Immediately start dipping.

Let them set up for 10 minutes or so on parchment or wax paper.

When they are set, remelt the red candy disk (if necessary) and dip just the bottoms (the large part of the Bugle) into the white sprinkles.

Flip them over and dip the top in the melted candy and press a mini marshmallow on top.

And voila…cute little  Santa hats!

To get the mixture Molly used, you can use:

3 cups mini pretzels
1/2 cup craisins
1 cup salted dry roasted peanuts
2 cups Rice Chex
2 cups holiday colored M&M’s
Thanks for sharing Molly! XOXO
