13 1/2 oz
box (about 7-8 cups) cinnamon chex
12 oz
orange candy melts or pure white chocolate
3 tsp
ground cinnamon, divided
1 1/2 tsp
pumpkin pie spice
1 c
confectioners' sugar
2 c
mallowcreme pumpkins candy*


1Pour the cereal into a large bowl. Set aside.
2In 20 second increments, melt the candy melts or white chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl.
3Stir after each increment until melted and completely smooth.
4Stir in 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and the pumpkin pie spice until combined.
5Pour mixture over cereal and toss gently to coat each square. Be gentle, the squares break easily.
6Pour the confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into a large zipped-top bag.
7Add the coated cereal and shake until each piece is coated.
8Pour back into a large bowl and discard excess confectioners' sugar.
9Toss in the mallowcreme pumpkins. Use 1 - 2 cups, whatever amount you prefer.
10Cover and store puppy chow for up to 2 weeks.
11*Instead of mallowcreme pumpkins, try adding 1 cup of Pumpkin Spice M&Ms or Candy Corn M&Ms, 1 cup of Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses, 1 cup of cinnamon chips, 1/2 cup of orange sprinkles, or even 1 cup of salty pumpkin seeds (which will cut the sweetness of the snack mix).
