Witches Midnight Puppy Chow

Yield: 5

Spooky treats include our Witches Midnight Puppy Chow. Sweet, chocolaty with a hint of peanut butter and lots of candy corn. Perfect Halloween treat!


  • 3 cups Chex Cereal
  • 2 cups Count Dracula Cereal, with marshmallows
  • 1/4 (1/2 stick) Butter, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Spreadable Chocolate
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Butter, smooth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar, (we use Dixie Crystals)
  • Candy Corn
  • Halloween Sprinkles, (we use Sweets and Treats)


  1. Place the Check and Count Dracula cereals into a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan combine the butter, chocolate and peanut butter and cook over low heat. Cook until the butter is melted and combined with the chocolate and peanut butter. Stir frequently.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the butter and chocolate mixture over the cereals. Stir well to combine and thoroughly coat.
  5. Place into a large plastic zip-lock bag. Add the powdered sugar. Shake until the powdered sugar has coated the cereal mixture. Tip: the perfect job for kids!
  6. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the puppy chow on the baking sheets. Be sure to keep the mixture to one even layer to ensure even drying.
  7. Add the Halloween sprinkles, and candy corn.
  8. Let the puppy chow dry for about 4-6 hours. Once dry store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
