Happy Saturday Friends!
It is that time of year again, it’s fall which means 2 things: it’s barely 2 degrees cooler and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, actually more like Pumpkin Spice everything is back.
I’m not gonna lie to you guys, I am a fan of the PSL. I don’t even know why really, maybe because it makes me feel basic and I like that…but I just like it! Judge all you want.
So in the spirit of Pumpkin Spice coming back into our lives and our Starbucks, I’ve come up with a recipe with some pumpkin spice that will take over your life.
Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow!
I got the original recipe from Ingrid, Missglamorazzi’s Holiday Puppy Chow Video and Brit+Co’s Recipe for Pumpkin Seed Puppy Chow, with a little deletions and insertions myself.
ps check out Brit+Co for more Halloween recipes, decor and costume ideas!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1 tsbp Pumpkin Spice
(I used pumpkin pie spice that I found in a store but you can make your own with 2 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp ground ginger, 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1 1/2 tsp all spice, and 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg)
Materials/Utensils you’ll need:
Let’s get started! *I say with a mouth full of this stuff because it is so good*
Next, put your white chocolate, peanut butter and butter/oil in a bowl.
As I said before how much butter you use will depend on what type of peanut butter you use. I used Skippy, which has kind of a lot of oil, so I used a small slab, maybe like 1/2 tbsp of butter? As you microwave it and see that it is not as liquidy as you want, you can try to add some more butter or milk.
Finally, your chocolate/peanut butter mixture should be cool but still smooth and liquidy
This is where everything will start to come together!
Pour your chocolate and peanut butter mixture over your cereal and mix that up until all the cereal is coated. You want to really careful with the cereal and not crush them. It’s kind of inevitable that some cereal will break but just try to be gentle with it and fold the chocolate mixture in.
After that is all good and mixed, is the fun part!!
This would be the time to add in your sprinkles if you want.
Next just pour your other half of your powered sugar that was in the separate bowl in. Having it already mixed and ready to go in a separate bowl just helps everything mix a little better and you won’t have pieces that are more spiced than others because well that wouldn’t taste too good.
After you have everything in your bag, close it up leaving some extra air in there and give it a good shake!
You want to shake it up until everything is coated with the sugar. I judge it by seeing if all the pieces of cereal are separated then I know that I am good.
You just made Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow!
Wasn’t that so easy? I tested this recipe out a few days ago and I still have a lot left, so this one bag will definitely last a long time.
This will definitely be a hit at any Halloween or Fall themed party or dinner you go to!
This is also something that would be really good to put in decorative baggies and give out to friends or maybe even trick-or-treaters?
I would love if I got this in my candy bag!
Let me know if you try it out and how it tastes!
