Puppy chow, or muddy buddies, snack mix gets a festive twist with pumpkin spice Hershey kisses, Rice Chex cereal, and Pumpkin Pie Spice. Be warned – this stuff is dangerously good!
I don’t think I know a single person who doesn’t love puppy chow (AKA Muddy Buddies or “trash”, whatever you might call it). And if you happen to be one of those people who doesn’t like it, don’t even tell me. I don’t want to know that I live in a world with people who don’t like this stuff.
Halloween is coming up in a few weeks and I love that it somehow makes it acceptable for me to make treats and sweets all month long. For instance, this pumpkin spice puppy chow…and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies….and pumpkin cinnamon rolls…..and homemade donuts….yeah, I’m definitely gonna get fat if I keep this up.
This is the first year I’ve heard of the Pumpkin Spice Hershey’s kisses, but apparently they have been around for a few years. I found mine at my local grocery store but have done my research and see that there are Walmarts that sell them, as well as Target. They are only seasonal and they are my new favorite Hershey’s kisses. You must try them!
This is great just the way it is, but would even make for a perfect mix with some peanuts, pretzels, candy corn and/or M&Ms with it. You can really get creative with this. If you’re serving it at a party or the likes and making it ahead of time, I recommend keeping it at room temperature so the sugar doesn’t get all “funny”. I made it for a baby shower and everyone loved it!
Now I just have to be careful not to eat this all in one sitting the next time I make it. These little devils are addicting! Have a wonderful weekend…
