We all know Pumpkin and Fall go together like Minnie and Mickey. It’s a match made in heaven!
I was brainstorming a new Fall recipe to share with you that wasn’t a typical pumpkin recipe. Pumpkin waffles and pancakes are delicious, don’t get me wrong, I just wanted to change it up a bit which is why this pumpkin puppy chow was created.
After 3 batches of puppy chow, I finally came up with the winning recipe. And by the way, I am not mad it took me 3 rounds since now I have a plethora of puppy chow 😉
My boyfriend is allergic to all nuts and has NEVER tried puppy chow before, which is why this recipe is made with soy nut butter. (I used the WOW butter).
I figured he’s 27 and never tried puppy chow I must make it with soy butter! However, it’s traditionally made with peanut butter, so whatever you choose with this recipe it will still be delicious.
Whether you’re going to a party or really just craving chocolate + pumpkin – you’ve gotta try this recipe! Hope you enjoy!
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and chocolates. Then mix in the soy butter, pumpkin puree and vanilla. Mix well.
Pour chex in a large bowl. Then pour chocolate mixture over rice chex and mix together. Move this mixture into a large ziplock baggie and pour in powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Close bag and shake it up! Be sure all rice chex is coated well. Enjoy!!
Any nut butter may be used in place of soy nut butter! Peanut butter is a popular choice.
