Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow

Growing up, one of my friends’ mothers made the most addictive puppy chow at Christmas. I mean, that stuff was so good and sugary. So naturally, I came home telling my mother all about it and asking her to make some. She gave me the strangest, sort of horrified look. Then, it hit me. . . . she thought I was talking about puppy chow – as in, dog food. I quickly explained that ‘No your daughter hasn’t developed a love for dog food.’

She was very relieved. Whether she was more relieved over the fact that she wouldn’t have to make a dish with dog food or that her daughter hadn’t been indulging in some extreme eating, I’m not sure.

That brings us to pumpkin spice puppy chow.
