Puppy chow is probably on my list of top 10 favorite foods. Not even kidding. I cannot stop myself when there is a bowl of it in front of me. It just magically disappears. Since fall is upon us and everything is now pumpkin flavored, what sounds better than pumpkin flavored puppy chow? Not much. Not much at all. Here is how to make pumpkin spice puppy chow!

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 cups candy pumpkins

Pour the Chex cereal into a bowl and put to the side. Melt the candy melts for 20 seconds, stir, melt, and stir until they are melted. Stir 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the cloves, allspice and nutmeg in to the candy melts until it is combined. Pour this mixture onto the cereal and stir gently to coat all of the squares. Be super gentle! Pour the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon into a large Ziploc baggie. Pour in the coated squares and shake until they are all coated in sugar. Pour in the pumpkins and toss some more. Store it in an air tight container, or just eat them all right then and there! No judgments here.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Once fall hits…BAM, pumpkin spice everything! I’m constantly dreaming about pumpkin spice lattes or pumpkin desserts. Now, we all know that the smell and taste of pumpkin spice is one of the best things about the fall, but what about using it for your skin?! I’ve got an amazing body scrub to bring together beauty and our favorite fall flavor.Chelsea Crockett- pumpkin puree

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup sea salt
  • ¼ cup coffee grounds
  • ¼ cup jojoba oil
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin

All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and start scrubbing! That’s it! Jojoba oil is extremely nourishing and can help repair even the driest of skin, while the salt and coffee grounds will help smooth out skin. Oh, and did I mention your body will smell like a pumpkin spice latte?! Hope you enjoy!

XOXO,
