Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow



Everyone eats their chow in the leaves...right??
October is the time for pumpkin spice. There is something about pumpkin spice flavored anything that makes me feel so darn COZY!
Hence Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow for when I had the girls over to carve and decorate pumpkins {glamkins}.


Ingredients
-16 oz box of chex (about 10-11 cups)
-12oz bag of white chocolate chips
-1/2c cookie butter (The key ingredient--I used Trader Joe's)
-2 tbsp butter
-3 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
If you don't have pumpkin spice you can use 1 3/4 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg)
-1 1/2c confectioner's sugar
-M&Ms or other festive garnishes
-paper bag

1. Melt chocolate, cookie butter, and butter in a saucepan.
2. Add the pumpkin spice.
3. Toss the chex into the large paper bag and pour in half of the    melty-mixture.
4. Shake, shake, shake.
5. Pour in the rest of the mixture.
6. Shake it all up until the chex are fully coated then let the      mixture cool for a bit.
7. Add the confectioner's sugar and shake until you have lovely      powdered snackies.
8. Lay the covered goodies out on wax paper to fully cool and        dust them with a bit more powder. {This last step is my secret to         keep them pretty and white and not gooey.}
9. Add M&Ms


Then begin to eat by the handful.
