Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow Mix

I can always count on for seasonal goodies inspiration... like Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow! What the heck is Puppy Chow you ask?! Puppy Chow is rice Chex cereal covered in melted chocolate, then dusted with powdered sugar. It's DELICIOUS! Since Hershey Kisses come in so many different seasonal flavors, like pumpkin spice, you can melt them down and use them to coat the Chex instead of regular chocolate.

Let me tell you... this Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow stuff is very sweet! So I decided to add in some pretzels, dark chocolate M&M's, and a bag of fall candy corn mix to break up the sweetness. I found the perfect balance of sweet and salty, crunchy and chewy with!!!! Be careful, this stuff is seriously addicting.

Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow Mix
  • 9 cups rice Chex cereal (I used wheat Chex)
  • 1 bag of pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses
  • 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 bag fall candy corn mix
  • 3 cups pretzels
  • 1 cup dark chocolate M&Ms

First, pour cereal into a large bowl. Pour powdered sugar in a large gallon size zip-lock bag.

Second, using a double broiler method, melt your Hershey Kisses, stirring constantly. The kisses will reach a nice creamy consistency.

Third, pour your melted kisses over your cereal and mix to coat. Once you feel your Chex are covered, dump into a bag with your powdered sugar and shake (or just pour in powdered sugar and stir).


Lay out in a single layer on parchment paper to dry.

Once dry, add candy corn, pretzels, and M&M's. Store mix in an air-tight container until ready to serve.


Great for fall parties or giveaway treats. Enjoy!
