Cinnamon apple pie muddy buddies, also known as puppy chow, are perfect for a fall party, after school snack, or anytime a sweet apple pie craving arises.

Can you feel it? Fall is right around the corner! Well, not necessarily for us central California folks but at least the craft stores are adorned with fall decor (and uh Christmas?) which basically means fall is on its way. Last year we had 100 degree weather through the end of October. Crossing my fingers that mother nature is nicer to us this year and blesses us with cooler temps and colorful leaves a littler earlier. I’ve been waiting to share fall crafts and recipes with you for a month and feel like its acceptable at this point, right? :)

I’m going to start by saying that I can’t be held accountable for any habits that may form after eating these dangerously addicting cinnamon apple pie muddy buddies. I love all of the muddy buddies recipes around and have been wanting to try an apple pie version for awhile now. To make this recipe I used the Apple Cinnamon Chex cereal, covered with white chocolate, then topped with powdered sugar and apple pie spice. It’s definitely a new fall favorite recipe around here!

Apple Pie Muddy Buddies


  1. 7-8 cups Cinnamon Apple Chex cereal
  2. 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or CandyQuick
  3. 1 - 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  4. 2 tsp apple pie spice


  1. Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave, stir until well combined.
  2. Pour half of the melted white chocolate and 1 tsp of apple pie spice onto the cereal, mix then pour the remaining chocolate and apple pie spice. Continue stirring until Chex cereal is evenly coated.
  3. Coat cereal with powdered sugar. I start with 1 cup of powdered sugar and slowly add another 1/2 cup if desired.
  4. Spread onto a wax paper lined baking sheet, allow cereal to set.
  5. Enjoy!

    {I didn’t link to the party because I know that is frowned upon in google and I didn’t want us both to take a hit. Sorry.}

    I found Apple pie spice at Wal-Mart. If you can’t find it you can make it yourself. It’s just 3 ingredients. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.

    Made a batch of these today and they are SO good. Super easy and fast. I kept a small bowl for the house and sent the rest to work with my other half. No way can I leave these around the house!
