Halloween Puppy Chow Recipe

This has got to be the world’s easiest Halloween snack that ever existed. Four ingredients and it costs less than $15 to make enough for a family of four. OR if you are like me and CANNOT USE SELF CONTROL, it is a perfect for a single person. This would be so cute to make for a school snack for a kids party at school! Just pack it up in a cute little plastic baggie and tie with an orange curly ribbon. How adorable would that be?! Too bad all my brilliant parenting ideas are wasted right now. Someday, friends. But today is not that day.

Halloween Puppy Chow Recipe

There you have it! The world’s easiest Halloween snack. I am actually probably going to bring some to my neighbors because I am a good friend like that. Plus I don’t know them outside of the fact that one time I had six huge packages some to my house in August but I was out-of-town so my neighbor had to sign for them and keep them in his living room for two weeks. I felt terrible and he was super salty about it. SO this will be my “sorry that I was not home to receive my packages plz stop giving me death glares every time I pass your door” gift. Happy Halloween neighbor!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and learned something new today! If you make this Halloween puppy chow recipe, be sure to tag me in a post so I can see how pretty they are! 

As always, you guys are the bomb. Thanks for making life so much fun for me!

  9. Molly Clifton | 28th Oct 16

    This sounds delicious and what a nice thought to give it to your neighbors! I don’t know what would happened if I couldn’t receive packages for two weeks. My neighbor would probably give me glares too haha #bloggerproblems

  24. Di | 29th Oct 16

    Well looking at the comments maybe I’m the only one out the loop and didn’t know what puppy chow was (aside from action dog food). I had to google it. I swear I’ve lived in the USA for 15 years but still find some new things!

    • Taylor Mobley | 29th Oct 16

      Hahah! Puppy chow is called TONS of different things, that is just what I always grew up calling it!!!!

  31. Megan mccoig | 31st Oct 16

    This is such a lovely idea to give your pets a Halloween dish. I’ve never used these brands but will look out for them!

  32. brittany | 31st Oct 16

    Why is puppy chow so good! My brother and I used to make it all the time! I don’t think my kids have ever tried it! I have to change that this year!

  33. Whitney S. | 1st Nov 16

    I love puppy chow, and really any kind of sweets. I especially love the Chex Mix Muddy Buddies. I can eat an entire bag in one sitting haha!

  34. Clarissa | 26th Sep 17

    I have a habit of making popcorn and then adding peanut M&Ms to the popcorn bowl….I think I may need to add your puppy chow to my popcorn bowl when it comes time for scary Halloween movies!

  35. Natalie | 26th Sep 17

    This is such a great idea! Can’t wait to try it out. Yum!

  36. Lauren | 26th Sep 17

    I like that it’s such an easy recipe. The colors of the candy corn and Reese’s Pieces are perfect for Halloween. I also like that it has candy corn. My husband loves that stuff but it can be a little blah on its own. Adding it with the other ingredients is a great way to enjoy this fall candy
