A deliciously spiced, super easy treat that is perfect for gatherings or to simply get those little hands in the kitchen!
Today I’m sharing a super simple recipe with you guys for the tastiest little snack – Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies! Is it too early for pumpkin? I’m trying to introduce it slowly so I don’t shock you guys since I have a full-blown pumpkin recipe coming next week, hehe. Muddy buddies are also referred to as puppy chow – not to be confused with actual puppy chow. These are not for dogs.. I feel like I have to clarify that because I had a reader yell at me once for feeding these to my dog. Clearly she didn’t read the post. Anyways, moving on.. fair warning: these are addicting!
These muddy buddies start with one of my favorite cereals, Rice Chex (how boring am I?), and are covered in a mixture of orange candy melts (you could just use the same amount of regular white chocolate if you’d like) with a little bit of pumpkin pie spice mixed in and then they are coated in a sugary, pumpkin pie spice mixture. I mixed in some cute little marshmallow creme pumpkins to make a perfect Fall/Halloween-themed snack. Perfect for any parties you have coming up!
This is pretty much the easiest snack to create in the history of snacks. Such a great way to get your kids in the kitchen and let me tell you, they are going to love this! All you need is 10 minutes from start to finish and you can create this tasty treat. I hope you enjoy!
