These awesome Pumpkin Pie Muddy Buddies are similar to puppy chow but take on a seasonal twist thanks to pumpkin pie spice and Biscoff spread.

Have you tried Biscoff yet? It’s a creamy spread, similar to peanut butter in texture, but it’s made of biscoff cookies, in fact, you may know it as cookie butter. Biscoff cookies are a shortbread cookie that’s mildly spiced, sort of  like a speculoos cookie or gingersnap.

I love to use Biscoff spread in a variety of ways: Biscoff PopcornBiscoff GranolaBiscoff No Bake CookiesCaramel Biscoff BlondiesBiscoff Pancakes, and so on. Once you buy a jar, you’ll discover all sorts of ways to use it, other than eating out of the jar with a spoon.

The addition of Biscoff gives so much great flavor to these muddy buddies but the pumpkin pie spice really drives the fall flavor home. You can make your own pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves or buy it already made at the grocery store. Use Cinnamon Chex if you can find it at the grocery store, for even more cinnamon spice.

I know you all need something to snack on while you’re making that big Thanksgiving dinner — this is just the thing. It would be perfect as a special treat in lunch boxes, too.

Best part is that the puppy chow is SO easy to make. So, so, so easy!

While you’re melting white chocolate and Biscoff in the microwave, you throw some powdered sugar into a zip-top bag. Once the white chocolate is melted, stir in pumpkin pie spice. Add Chex cereal and stir until the cereal is good and coated in white chocolate.

The last thing left to do is pour that coated cereal into the zip-top bag with the powdered sugar. Shake, shake, shake….eat, eat, eat.

Try and resist this stuff. Just try.
