Pumpkin Oreo Muddy Buddies

These Oreo-packed muddy buddies get a seasonal twist with pumpkin spice morsels!

An easy recipe for Pumpkin Oreo Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)

I don’t know if you’ve sensed this about me, but I have been chomping at the bit to get Halloween-y! I’ve been trying to stay seasonally appropriate and focus more on football themed treats or even just generic Fall flavors. But the truth is that I am DYING to start posting Halloween this year!

Which is funny, because I’ve never been much of a Halloween person before. But for some reason, my brain keeps swirling around delicious ideas centered on mummies and ghosts and jack-o-lanterns.

Which must be why I took an old non-Halloween recipe from a few years ago and gave it a facelift involving spiders and candy pumpkins. 🎃

Actually, the real reason I’m re-posting these pumpkin spiced muddy buddies is because I wanted to reconfigure the recipe a little bit. And while I was working on that, I figured new pictures were in order.

The original recipe I posted 4 years ago (how has it already been that long???) used Pumpkin Hershey Kisses melted down and coating the Chex cereal and crumbled Oreos.

While I still love the flavor of Pumpkin Hershey Kisses, I felt like this recipe could be improved by switching them out for Nestle’s Pumpkin Morsels (they look like chocolate chips, only orange!). Mostly because it’s just so much easier to pour out a bag of morsels than it is to individually unwrap all of those Hershey Kisses!

I also decided to crumble the Oreos, instead of leaving large chunks of cookies. Not a major change, but I did end up liking it better that way.

The black widow spiders and candy pumpkins are totally optional. But I was craving Halloween, so they happened. 😋

Enjoy!
