Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow

When it comes to bringing something fun, festive and sweet to a party in the fall, I almost always default to cookies. But cookies – no matter how ridiculously delicious they may be – never get the same reaction that puppy chow gets.

Just the name alone elicits a reaction. Puppy chow. Those who haven’t heard of puppy chow scoff at the name. Those who have heard of puppy chow start drooling.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with puppy chow, I’m so sorry you’ve been missing out on one of life’s little treasures. But it’s not too late!

I revamped traditional puppy chow (made with chocolate and peanut butter) and created a fun fall version with pumpkin pie spice and Biscoff.

I think this puppy chow would also taste delicious with candy corn, orange and yellow Reese’s Pieces candies or pumpkin pie spiced pecans stirred into the mix.

If you decide to give it a go, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did in our house!

    Ha I’m a little late here, but this looks good! I’ve been on a bit of a pumpkin kick lately, including making your Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal–more banana-y and less pumpkin-y than I thought it would be, but still delicious. I’ve always made puppy chow with Crispix, so whenever I have it made with Chex it just doesn’t taste as fantastic to me. If you haven’t, try making normal puppy chow with Crispix! It’s better in my opinion. Also, I’m already looking forward to Christmas, so this has got me thinking of a peppermint/gingerbread/other Christmas flavor puppy chow? Hmmm.

    Hi Julie! I’m not sure if you read old comments ever but I just made this to take to work tomorrow and it is soooooo good. Thanks for another great recipe!
    P.S. if I don’t stop soon my coworkers won’t ever know this existed 🙂

      Hello…..I had never heard of Biscoff either but I looked on their website and not only will they ship it to you if there are no stores in your area that stock it, but if you go to their site and put in your state, they tell you what stores in your area stock it. Wal-Mart will even ship it to a particular store for you at no charge if that store does not regularly carry Biscoff spread. here in Illinois where I live, many stores carry it…Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Schnuck’s, Meijer, Fresh Market, Dominick’s…the list goes on and on. Do yourself a favor and go to their website, you’ll be glad that you did.

    Ok, I made this for Labor Day. I added a little bit more spice to the powdered sugar, but other than that, I made it exactly as per the recipe. OH MY GAWD!!! Addictive is putting it mildly – it is fabulous! I had never heard of Biscoff, but now I have all these other uses running through my head. MAKE THIS for a Halloween party, school party, steal some for yourself though. Since there is no peanut butter it is school safe 🙂 Thank you SO much!

    Great recipes! I think you should host another crock pot recipe challenge. My crock pot has finally returned into the weekly rotation and I get the feeling other people’s have too!
