The perfect fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving snack: Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies!
What are muddy buddies?
I’ve heard Muddy Buddies called by many different names including: puppy chow, monkey munch, monkey buddies, and Chex mix.
Muddy Buddies are any form of Chex Cereal covered in some sort of chocolate, powdered sugar and other flavors.
Often times have candy and other toppings mixed in.
No matter the name, Muddy Buddies are a perfect snack for movie nights, parties or a day at the park or beach!
Ok, who are we kidding, they are perfect to eat anywhere or everywhere.

How to make Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies:
I love how easy it is to make these Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies.
I was able to whip up a batch of these for my kids in a matter of minutes, and they were gone just as quickly.
Start by measuring out 6 cups of Cinnamon Chex Cereal and pouring it into a large mixing bowl.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and powdered sugar.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 cups of white chocolate chips with a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, remove from the microwave and stir until the chocolate is smooth.
Pour the melted white chocolate over the Chex Cereal and gently fold until all of the cereal is evenly coated.
Pour the powdered sugar and spice mixture over the cereal and gently mix until all of the cereal is evenly coated.
Sprinkle a little more pumpkin pie spice on top for garnish and serve.
