Fall Snack: Pumpkin Spice Muddy Buddies

Summer has come to an end, and as much as I miss the consistent sun and heat, I absolutely love fall in the Pacific Northwest. The leaves have already started changing colors in Seattle, and there is that familiar crisp freshness in the air signaling the beginning of autumn.

The end of summer season also marks the last of three posts I'm writing in collaboration with Adams Peanut Butter. I love that Adams is a local brand and was started by a football coach from Tacoma, WA in 1916 - happy 100 years of success and pure peanut butter goodness! I've had so much fun being their summer ambassador, as they encouraged me to enjoy the beautiful PNW outdoors. I started off with a post about my summer picnic (that feels so long ago!) and then my summer hike.

I wanted to create this post and add a little touch of fall to one of my favorite childhood snacks: muddy buddies with, of course, pumpkin spice! As a plus, the recipe is super easy - see below!

Recipe:
  1. 9 cups of chex mix
  2. 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  3. 1/2 cup Adams Organic Creamy Peanut Butter

Directions: Pour the cereal in a large bowl. Melt the butter, chocolate, and peanut butter. Add vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal. Stir. Scoop into plastic bag. Add powdered sugar and pumpkin spice. Shake shake shake!

That's it! I just made muddy buddies a couple days ago and the entire bag is almost gone. I hope you enjoy and happy fall!

(Btw, my off-the-shoulder gingham top is from Shein and floral apron is from Anthropologie.)
