Pumpkin Spice Buddies

If you live in Utah, please come and take these away from me.  I am obsessed with muddy buddies, but this takes muddy buddies to a ‘whole nother level’.  I seriously just found the BEST fall snack ever invented.  They are so easy and addicting.  These are made with cinnamon chex mix and oh my.  These are good!  Make them and join me in my new addiction.

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 1 star
How I changed them:  I added about half as much of the chex they required because I felt like my chocolate wouldn’t cover them all.  I also added a little more powdered sugar.
Things that I would do differently next time: Nothing
Will I make these again?  Yes

    This recipe did not work for me. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’ve made it 2 times in the past 2 days. I tried adding alittle butter to the chips to make them a bit more smooth. I did it in the microwave and then in a double broiler. HELP

        White chocolate chips don’t melt the same as regular ones. It helps to add a little fat to them. Vegetable oil works best for me – usually about a tablespoon per bag. Hope this helps.

      I was having the same problem when I was making them. What I did was over the stove top, I added some whole milk as needed. It turned out great! I also had to add some extra white chocolate chips because it wasn’t enough to cover the cereal.
