Thanksgiving Snacking: Candy Corn Puppy Chow

I eat constantly on Thanksgiving day:

  • a nibble of a carrot while chopping,
  • black olives served on the ends of my daughter’s fingers, and even
  • a spray (or seven) of air-pressurized whipped cream directly into my pie hole…

Whether we’re hosting or not, it seems the snack table is just too good to pass up. And this Candy Corn Puppy Chow recipe should be on that table.

How to Make This Fun Fall Chex™ Mix Snack 

Before we get started, line a baking tray with parchment paper, get a big bowl and a top-sealing plastic bag.

  1. Place 1/3 cup of yellow candy melts in a microwave-safe container and melt per package instructions.
  2. Add 2 cups Chex™ cereal into a bowl and add the melted yellow candy. Stir until all cereal is coated.
  3. Place the sugar into a seal-top bag, add the yellow sugar sprinkles and the candy-coated cereal. Seal the bag and shake well. Lay it all out on a baking sheet to set.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the candy corn – yes, melt the candy corn. ;)
  5. Repeat steps 1-3 for the white candy melts, however, only coat the candy-coated cereal with the powdered sugar (no color).
  6. Allow the Muddy Buddies to dry completely before combining. Add candy corn for garnish and serve.

This can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days.
