This Peppermint Bugles recipe is like puppy chow with Bugles instead of Chex. Holiday desserts like this are easy to make and can be put into jars for gifts.
Did you have a good a weekend? Ours was busy but very nice. Vanessa and Zack came shopping with me on Saturday. There were a bunch of stores I had to stop at. While we were at one of the stores, the kids were trying out a machine that tells you what kind of shoe inserts you need. They had to take their shoes off to do the test. I looked down at the floor and saw that Zack was wearing a pair of my gray canvas hightops! I couldn’t believe it.
Me: Zack, those are my shoes! Why are you wearing them?
Zack: (laughs) Because I like them…can I have them?
Me: No! (laughs) You can’t have them! I wear those shoes.
Zack: They are actually Christine’s shoes and they are boy’s shoes anyway.
Me: No, Christine gave them to me because they didn’t fit her anymore and I don’t care that they are boy’s shoes! I like them.
So, my baby is big enough to wear my shoes! Where did the time go?
We spent the evening at our friend’s house and I brought along these Peppermint Bugles to share. There were super easy to mix up between shopping and leaving again for the evening.
Melt a package of vanilla CandiQuik and mix in some peppermint extract. Pour it over a bag of original Bugles and stir to coat.
Add peppermint crunch baking chips and mix them in.
Coat the mixture with powdered sugar like you do when making puppy chow.
Pour onto a piece of waxed paper to allow the vanilla candy coating to set up. Break up any large chunks.
So easy to make and everyone loved it. This was my first time coating Bugles and I can’t wait to make some more flavors!
