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

What is your favorite candy bar? One of my absolute favorites is Snickers The best way to watch a movie is with a bucket of popcorn, so at your next movie marathon or dorm room movie night, make your friends some Snickers popcorn!

Ingredients:snickers-caramel-popcorn2-500x500

  • 8 quarts of popped corn
  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 2 cups of packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup of light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of salted peanuts
  • 30 “fun size” Snickers bars, chopped
  • 3 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. In a saucepan over medium heat, boil the butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the baking soda. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir it so that it covers all of the corn. Spread some wax paper onto the counter and then pour the coated corn onto the wax paper. Sprinkle the peanuts on top and then transfer it into a roasting pan and bake for 1 hour, stirring it every 15 minutes. When you remove it from the oven, stir in the chopped Snickers and put it back in the oven for about 3 minutes. Remove the popcorn from the pan and then spread it onto the wax paper to cool. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of it, and then store it in a container until you and your friends are ready to devour it!

XOXO, Chels
