Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow September 27, 2012

Yes…here it is again.  Another incredible puppy chow recipe!




Although I can’t take credit for creating the recipe, I take full credit for making, eating, and sharing it.  The creation came from THIS BLOG and the recipe came to me by way of a close friend!


Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow


1 10 oz bag of pumpkin spice kisses

6 cups Chex cereal

2 cups powdered sugar

Pumpkin pie spice to taste


Melt kisses in the microwave or double boiler.  I used the microwave, and the entire bag melted in about 2 minutes.  Pour melted kisses over 6 cups of Chex cereal, stirring to coat (I find a spatula works best).  Fold in powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice.





We pulled the recipe together in my mom’s kitchen this week and proceeded to eat a significant amount before bagging it up and sharing it!  Everyone who tried it, loved it!  Oh the possibilities…I wonder what other Hershey Kisses are out there for puppy chow!




Since the Chex box has 12 cups of cereal and this recipe only uses half, we had another 6 cups of Chex mix to use.  I found some vanilla almond bark and attempted to make a recipe similar to THIS ONE, but I didn’t really measure and used way too little butter.




The result was a puppy chow crumble.  We came up with a ton of funny names for this concoction, but I think peanut butter puppy crumble is most appropriate.  Despite its crushed up nature, it tasted delish.  We ate the big clumps, and I took the rest home to use in some other recipe of sorts.  I was thinking PB Puppy Chow Crumble Brownies.  But when I got home, the BOY had some other ideas.

The puppy crumble ball didn’t hold up too well, but the spoon idea was pure genius!

Luckily, the Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow was a HUGE success!  I’m heading out to Target for another bag of Pumpkin Spice Kisses immediately!  You will want to do the same!
