My Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bugles are perfect for your holiday treat list!  Caramel, chocolate, and salty Bugles look like mini cornucopias!



7 ounces Bugles corn snacks (about half a bag)

1/2 cup Dulce de Leche (homemade or premade)

1/4 pound Dark Chocolate (melting wafers)

Sprinkles and Pumpkin Candies (for garnish)


Stuff the Bugles

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Lay your Bugles out in a single layer with plenty of space around them.*

Fill the Bugles with the dulce de leche using piping bags, Ziploc bags, or a tiny spoon, and place on the baking sheet.

Dip your stuffed Bugles in chocolate to seal

While you are filling your Bugles, melt your dark chocolate.*

Once your Bugles are stuffed and the chocolate is melted, dip your Bugles into the chocolate to seal in the dulce de leche.

Let cool for a few minutes and then add your sprinkles or pumpkin candies.*

If you want you can put the baking sheet with all the dipped Bugles in the fridge to speed up the setting time.

When all the chocolate is set, store in an airtight bag or container for a few days.*


*You want the Bugles that are wide open on the end so you can stuff more dulce de leche in them.  You might only find about half the Bugles in the bag are open.  Save the other ones for eating plain or chop them up into breadcrumbs.

*I placed my dulce de leche in a frosting piping bag, twisted the end up, and then put the bag in a glass of hot water.  A crockpot works great for this and keeps it from burning.  If you microwave it use half power so you don’t burn it.

*I melted my chocolate in a plastic food storage container in a crockpot with a little water set on low.

*The pumpkin sprinkles are fun but feel free to use any fall-related candies or just fall-colored sprinkles.

*After a few days, the dulce de leche tends to make the Bugles a little soggy after a few days so you might want to make them closer to the time you are planning on serving them.
