Cookie cereal filled with a chocolate center mixed with mini chocolate covered pretzel santa hats.
I’m not going to lie. This snack mix takes a little patience. If you have kids make them do the cookie sandwiches. I sat in my kitchen alone and it took F-O-R-E-V-E-R! I usually do everything pretty slowly though so I can’t say it will take you just as long.
You may not know this about me but I’m seriously the slowest person in the kitchen. I like to think of myself as a perfectionist so I have to make sure every dough ball is the same size and perfectly round. Every sprinkle must be placed perfectly. I think you get the point. I own a pair of twelve inch tweezers just for positioning sprinkles and other small things.
Being a perfectionist is really cool at times. Other times it can be really terrible. We recently just started buying organizers for our kitchen so you know, it can be more organized. BUT when I try to take the time to organize it takes forever because everything has to be perfect.
Once something is perfectly organized and someone comes along and messes it up… that’s when I get really frustrated. It’s almost easier to leave things a mess or unorganized because it doesn’t bother me as much. Weird, I know?!
This santa snack mix is super cute to leave out on christmas eve. I love that it’s no bake so the tiny humans can help every step along the way. This would even be a super cute treat to bring to a school party. The kids would love munching on this incredible snack mix. If I were Santa Claus I wouldn’t mind finding a bowl full of this on Christmas Eve 😉
