I had to explain to my husband what “puppy chow” was. I feel like the guilty party in this scenario -- how can he not know what puppy chow is? I said, “You know, Muddy Buddies!” and was still met with “huh?” I needed to remedy this immediately, but of course it was necessary to put a fall-inspired spin on this. The classic peanut butter chocolate combination is always perfect, but I’m obsessed with all things fall.

I used my favorite homemade pumpkin pie spice and Biscoff spread, along with Cinnamon Chex to create these insanely flavorful pumpkin pie muddy buddies. Makes me want to curl up with a blanket in front of a fire.

These come together in a matter of minutes... and will probably disappear just as quickly. All you do is melt the white chocolate and Biscoff spread, stir in the Chex cereal, shake them around in powdered sugar... and then eat! It really couldn’t be easier.

I’m going to start making every possible muddy buddy combination under the sun now. If you need me, I’ll be licking the powdered sugar off my fingers. Either that or shopping for a larger size of jeans.

wht is Biscoff spread

bluebonnetbaker.com @ Kelly

Hi Kelly,
Biscoff spread is also called speculoos spread or cookie butter. It has the consistency of peanut butter, but is made from blended gingerbread cookies. It's also one of the most delicious things ever. Biscoff is probably the most well known brand of this type of spread, because they also make the cookies. Hope that helps!
