Fall Pumpkin Munch
Whether you want a fun snack mix for the week, potluck fall dessert, or a treat to give to loved ones, this recipe is a must. Even those who don’t love pumpkin will reach for one more bite of this snack mix. Puppy chow, muddy buddies, pumpkin munch.. no matter what you call this, it is exceptional.
How to Make
Full instructions and measurements are in the printable recipe card below.
Start by melting your chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in the microwave. You are more than welcome to use a double boiler if you prefer.
You will heat and stir until it is fully melted and nice and creamy. Every 20-30 seconds I just remove from the microwave, stir, and then reheat again. Once fully melted add pumpkin spice and vanilla and stir well.
Add in your cinnamon Chex, coat in chocolate, then add in powdered sugar to coat the Chex. Once you have done that, add in your Reese’s Pieces, and stir once more.
Then your fall pumpkin munch mix is ready!
What If I Can’t Find Cinnamon Chex
If you can’t find Cinnamon Chex you can buy online, and ship to your store. Or feel free to reach for a corn or rice Chex to replace. It will lose a little flavor from not having cinnamon but it will still taste really good since you have the pumpkin spice.
If you really like cinnamon go right ahead and add in 1/4 of a teaspoon when you add in the pumpkin spice.
