This Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow is everything we hoped it would be and more. Perfectly crunchy, deliciously sweet, and packed with plenty of pumpkin pie spice. The best part about this recipe just might be how incredibly simple it is to make. No need to turn on the oven, you’ll dirty hardly any dishes, and it’s ready to eat within minutes! It can be mixed up in a large bowl, or my preferred method is to pour everything into a clean brown paper bag. When using the bag, you can fold the top over and shake it all together without turning your kitchen into a mess of powdered sugar. Just toss the bag when you’re finished for an easy-breezy cleanup!
