By now, everyone should know what I’m talking about when I say puppy chow, puppy food, or muddy buddies. It’s really simple to make, and seems to come around more frequently during the holiday season. Today, I decided to make some, and put a Halloween spin on it!
4 cups Chex, Crispix, or any other similar cereal (I used Whole Foods Wheat Waffles)
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup peanut butter
1 tbsp butter or margarine
½ tsp vanilla
Powdered sugar (approximately 1 cup)
2/3 cup candy corn
1 cup pumpkin spice chocolate chips
1. In a microwavable bowl, combine butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. Heat, uncovered, in microwave for 1 minute, remove, and stir until softened. Heat for an additional 15 seconds for any more time needed to soften.
2. Once chocolate/peanut butter mixture is melted, add in vanilla and stir.
3. In a large separate bowl, add 4 cups of cereal and pour in melted mixture and fold together with a spatula until cereal is evenly coated.
4. Once chocolate/peanut butter mixture is combined with cereal, slowly add in powdered sugar, and stir until there is a dusting coating all cereal squares. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes so chocolate mixture can cool.
Seal and store in airtight container for up to a week.
Have an awesome weekend,
