If you don’t want to make the homemade caramel bugles, you can just use plain bugles too. They also sell a caramel flavored bugles these days. But note – the store bought caramel flavored bugles can not even begin to compare to these homemade ones. Completely different flavor!

This is great for a snack to keep around the house, for Halloween parties or get together, gift giving, etc. One year, I packaged this trail mix up in clear bags that were shaped like a hand & gave it out at a Halloween party. So fun!
