Candy Corn Puppy Chow Party Mix

I know what you’re thinking. Is this a treat for dogs? No! Puppy Chow is an addicting sweet treat made with peanut butter, chocolate, and Chex Cereal. It’s quick, easy, and incredible full proof. Anyone can do it!


To make it special for Halloween, I added Candy Corn to the mixture. If you want the Candy Corn to pop more, just add it to the Chex Cereal mixture after it’s coated in powdered sugar.

Feel free to play around with this recipe to add any types of candy you like. Change it up to make it work for any other holiday – think Candy Canes for Christmas, and Sweet Hearts for Valentines Day!

Ingredients
  • 8 cups Chex Cereal
  • 3 cups Candy Corn
  • 3 cups White Chocolate, Chopped or Chips
  • 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • Small Treat Baggies
  • ribbon
Directions

Place the Chex Cereal and Candy Corn in a large bowl and set aside until ready to use.

Add the white chocolate, peanut butter, and butter in a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the mixture is completely melted and smooth. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the mixture over the Chex Cereal and Candy Corn. Using clean hands or large tongs, toss the mixture until the Chex Cereal is completely coated.

Place 2 cups of Powdered Sugar in a large Ziploc bag and the other 2 cups in a different Ziploc bag. Pour half of the Chex Cereal mixture in each bag and tightly close each bag. Shake each bag until the mixture is completely coated in powdered sugar.

If you are using the small treat baggies, place a small scoopful of the “puppy chow” in each baggie. Tie each baggie with a ribbon.

Tip: This Candy Corn “Puppy Chow” last up to 2 weeks in a sealed container/bag.
