Mix it up this fall with this pumpkin flavored Chex puppy chow recipe! Five simple ingredients plus about 15 minutes are all you need to whip up a pumpkin pie treat everyone will love.
One my favorite snacks is Chex puppy chow or muddy buddy mix. I’m not sure where the different names came from but either way, it is an easy snack to make.
I love the traditional chocolate and peanut butter mix, but there are a lot of fun variations on this classic snack recipe.
Since fall is just around the corner, and pumpkin will soon be on everyone’s menu, a pumpkin pie flavored Chex puppy chow recipe was a must try.
Like most Chex puppy chow recipes, this pumpkin pie version is simple and quick to make. It only requires 5 ingredients and is ready in about 15 minutes.
Use any type of Chex cereal you prefer, but this version uses rice. You will also need pumpkin puree, Wilton white melting wafers, powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
I have a wonderful recipe for homemade pumpkin pie spice in case you don’t have any on hand.
You can use a microwave or a small pot on the stove to melt the wafers. I don’t own a microwave so I generally just melt things on low on the stove top.
Melt the wafers in a large pot to leave room to mix the cereal in right in the pot. Less dishes to do!
Once the cereal is coated in the pumpkin puree mix, add it to the large plastic storage bag with the powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice mix.
Again, make sure to use a nice large bag to leave space to mix. Seal it tight and shake it around to coat the cereal.
Just looking at the finished snack mix, it doesn’t really look like pumpkin. So add in a few fall colored sprinkles to get people wondering what flavor it is.
This is such a fun and unusual Chex puppy chow recipe that’s perfect for fall!
