Step 1

In a medium glass bowl, heat the butterscotch chips for 1 minute at 70% power. Stir well. Add the peanut butter, and microwave for an additional 10 seconds. Stir well until completely smooth and creamy.

Step 2

Pour the chow mein noodles into a large bowl, and add the butterscotch mixture, reserving approximately 1 tablespoon. Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.

Step 3

Line a cutting board or baking sheet with wax paper. Drop the butterscotch/chow mein noodles by rounded tablespoon onto the wax paper, and flatten slightly. These will be the brim of the hat.

Step 6

Once the butterscotch has set, wrap the Fruit Roll-Up around the base of the Bugle Corn Snack. You can either fold the Fruit Roll-Up over to make it a thicker band, or wrap one layer around the base. This will be the band of the hat.

Step 7

On the same piece of wax paper roll out the Fruit by the Foot. Cut into small squares, and then make small slits around the square to resemble a patch. Place the patch on the Bugles, and press lightly to get them to attach. Refrigerate again for about 3 minutes, and serve.
