If you love a good Muddy Buddy Mix (some people call it Puppy Chow), you’ll love this super tasty Halloween Muddy Buddies Mix.
It’s already that time of the year again. The leaves are beginning to change color and the temperatures are dropping, even in Texas. I walked outside yesterday and the cool air hit my face. It was an immediate reminder that my favorite season was over, and too soon I would be dealing with the cold winter weather that I dread every single year.
But before I have to deal with gloves, puffy jackets and knee-high boots, I get to enjoy the wonderful fall weather and this Halloween Muddy Buddies Mix. Because – Halloween!

With all the Halloween merchandise on store shelves, I haven’t been able to stop the need for gettin’ busy in the kitchen (oh, not that way – gah!). In the last couple of weeks I’ve made Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats and Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’m lovin’ all these fun, festive treats.
Halloween Muddy Buddies Mix
When I make special treats for my children, I excitedly look forward to their reactions. Their reactions are a big driving force for me. I adore seeing them excited, and to see their little faces light up with joy. When they walked into the kitchen and saw two big pans of Halloween Muddy Buddies Mix waiting for them, it was all I needed to get me through the rest of the day.
Making a Halloween treat that uses candy corn as one of the ingredients is high up on my list since two out of my three children absolutely love candy corn. I could do without it, but since it’s one of their favorite festive treats, I include it where I can. And I love how colorful they are! Perfect for fall and Halloween.
I’ll go ahead and warn you now that this recipe makes a pretty big batch of mouthwatering goodness. Like a seriously big batch. But it’s perfect for sharing. Give some to your neighbors, child’s teacher, friends, etc. It’s best for me that I get it out of my house as soon as I can because it’s very possible that I’ll munch on it until my stomach hurts.
Hey! Why don’t you pin this really quick to your favorite Halloween board on Pinterest so that you’ll be able to find it when the mood strikes to make some yummy Puppy Chow for Halloween.
Not that I know from experience though – thank goodness!
Halloween Muddy Buddy Mix Recipe
