I had to start with this pumpkin puppy chow….which I can’t seem to stop eating, help!

Step 4: Place the powdered sugar in a gallon zip lock, add Chex cereal, then shake until covered OR place the Chex cereal in a strainer and place strainer over a larger bowl. Pour powdered sugar over the Chex cereal then begin to shake the strainer over the bowl. The powder sugar will begin to cover the Chex cereal and excess will fall into the bowl underneath. You may need to repeat a few times until all Chex cereal has been covered and all excess powdered sugar is in the mixing bowl.

I also tossed in a few pumpkin sprinkles, because well you know how I feel about sprinkles! And these cute little pumpkin cupcake liners came from Target, they made the perfect little serving bowls.

Seriously I can’t stop eating these things! Somebody better take them away…Such a perfect fall twist on a classic treat.
