Halloween Puppy Chow Ingredients.

Essentially Halloween puppy chow is just regular puppy chow mixed with bugles, Reese’s pieces, M&M’s, candy corn, white chocolate covered pretzels, and candy eyes. But you are not restricted to those ingredients. I used peanut butter M&M’s and I added even more peanut butter flavor by using peanut butter Chex – all the peanut butter!

But, I think this would also be a great way to use up any chocolate leftover Halloween candy. Or maybe you want to change things up and add your candy to a different flavor of puppy chow. What about s’mores puppy chow, churro puppy chow, or you could even try cake batter puppy chow. The latter may lend itself to the non-chocolate candies lie Skittles.

I sent the majority of the batch with Bob to work, but when I asked how his coworkers enjoyed it he informed me that he did not share any of it. Guess it must be good if he refuses to share a gallon bag-full of Halloween puppy chow!
