I decided to add some delicious fall flavor to one of my favorite snacks to make… Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow.
Do you call it Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow? In my house, we call it Muddy Buddies most of the time. Kinda like we all call lip balm Chap Stick and we all call facial tissue Kleenex. It’s not just my house right?!
PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING.
I’m pretty sure that even two years ago pumpkin spice was limited to drinks at Starbucks and maybe a few other desserts. But now you can go into any grocery store and find just about anything you can think of comes in a pumpkin spice variety this time of year.
I’m not really complaining. I love pumpkin spice. I just think that maybe it’s better if we limit it so that it’s still special, ya know?
I made another video for you! Watch it below or you can scroll on down to see the step by step photos. By the way, if you like the videos (and believe me, I am still learning a lot about videos so please bear with me!) it would be great if you would subscribe to my Youtube Channel!!
How to make Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow:
You need 8 cups of cinnamon chex cereal. (This post is NOT SPONSORED.) Set aside.
Next, you need 1 cup milk chocolate chips….
1/4 cup softened butter…
And 1/2 cup peanut butter. Melt in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
Remove from microwave and stir until well blended.
Now you need your cereal for a minute, add 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice to the chex cereal.
Then, pour the melted chocolate & butter over the cereal, mix well.
Grab a gallon zipper bag, add 2 cups of powdered sugar to the bag.
Add the cereal mixture to the gallon bag.
Zip the bag up…and start tossing around like crazy. Ok, don’t be crazy unless you like making messes that you have to cleanup. Just toss the CLOSED bag around to coat the cereal mixture in powdered sugar.
After several minutes, open the bag to take a peak at the cereal….
Add a bit more powdered sugar (about 1/2 cup).
ZIP THE BAG and give it a few more tosses.
VOILA!!! Serve and ENJOY!! Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. After about 3 days the cereal will start to get stale.
