Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies

October is halfway over and today I am sharing pumpkin recipe #3 of 5. This weeks post also features a special blog hop at the end where you will find links to several other fall inspired recipes from some of my closest blogging friends. If you are looking for a new recipe to inspire you to start baking or cooking, I feel certain you will find at least one to try.

Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies

Like last week’s recipe, this week was another first for me. Believe it or not, I had never made muddy buddies before. Why? I have no idea. But I am starting to think I was better off that way, since I can’t seem to keep my hand out of the bowl.

This was such a quick and simple treat to make. It would be perfect to put in some fall treat bags to hand out at a party, snack on while watching a fall movie or bring with you to a bonfire or fall celebration.

There are SO many ways you can make your own variations of this easy mix. I threw some fall candy corn mix in mine, to make it a little prettier to photograph, but I have a whole list of other ideas that would also be amazing in this treat. 

Add-in Ideas:
*Fall M&M’s
*Heath bits
*Almonds or another nut you love
*Craisins or raisins
*Mini Chocolate Chips
*Fall Sprinkles
*Candy Corn

  1. Beth! It’s so Festive and pumpkin-y and all things PERFECT for Fall!! I love this and now I wish I had some in a baggy to take to work and munch on today!! Great job pretty mama!!

    1. You have never ate Muddy Buddies!!! Oh girl you have to fix that. Totally make the classic recipe. You will love it! So maybe do it for a party or just a half batch. This stuff is dangerous.

  2. This stuff is the best and I’d make it in a heart beat except then I’d eat it in a heart beat. I love your addition of fun seasonal candy!!!

  3. Yum!! I love that you mixed some Fall candy in with the chex mix. Looks super festive πŸ™‚

    1. I thought that was the easiest way to make it look festive. Plus I knew if I dumped fall M&M’s in there I would have ate them all out of it by now :P.

    1. See, most people around here call it puppy chow too. At least all growing up that is what it was called. This was definitely a fun variation on a classic treat.

  4. I pinned this and it’s so going down at my house! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for sharing! Found you via #happynowlinkup
