Are you dreaming of all things pumpkin yet? Just me? :) If you have been around here any length of time, you know that I am obsessed with all things pumpkin. Fall is by far my favorite season when it comes to food ... isn't it everyone's?!

I picked up some Pumpkin Spice flavored Wilton Candy melts awhile back and really had no idea what to do with them. As I was doing my weekly grocery shopping over the weekend, it dawned on me - Muddy Buddies!! I haven't made them in ages - and I loved the idea of making them pumpkin flavored! Some of y'all might call these "puppy chow" - I've heard both terms used. No matter what you call them, they are delicious! This Fall version - Pumpkin Spice Muddy buddies - is easy to make and is utterly delicious! It's the perfect way to snack this season! :)

Side note: If you're looking for a homemade pumpkin butter, my bloggy friend Deb, over at Cooking on the Front Burner has an awesome one! Click HERE to see Deb's Pumpkin Butter recipe!
