My book club resumed last week and since we rock it potluck style, I needed to whip something quick after work. Unfortunately, it was right before we headed out of town so our cupboards were pretty bare. Lucky for me though, I had enough staples to create this festive little snack! [Sidenote: Candy Corn Chow is just a modified Puppy Chow. Easy peasy.]
What you need for Candy Corn Chow:
Ok, here's how easy it is:
Add 1 cup of peanut butter and 2 Tbsp of butter to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir in about 1 tsp of vanilla. Pour the combination over 6 cups of Chex and mix gently.
Once the Chex are fully coated with delicious PB, it's on to Step 2.
I use a paper grocery bag to coat the Chex with Powdered Sugar. Pour 1 cup of powdered sugar into the bag, add the pb-coated chex, roll the bag and shake well. Each piece should be covered completely. I don't normally add cinnamon to puppy chow, but my festive fall version demanded it. Sprinkle cinnamon liberally over the entire batch. Mix in a bag of candy corn and devour.
That's it. Modified Puppy Chow or as I like to call it: Candy Corn Chow.
P.S. My dad loved this stuff. We were booze cruisin' and leaf peepin' this weekend and he made everyone try the Chow. That's how I know it's good. Trust the dad.
