Do you love peanut butter?  So many people do! Every Tuesday on my facebook page this fall, I have hosted a “theme” day.  I leave it up to my readers, via social media, to pick the “guest of honor.” This week it was Peanut Butter.  It’s funny, the days I have these theme parties, I usually crave that item.  Today is no different.  That is where the idea of this Peanut Butter Puppy chow was born!

Some of the batch I added candy corn, like you see above.  Something about that candy corn and the peanut…mmmm, it’s just so perfect. (think Pay Day bar)

Some of it I used just the Peanut Butter M & M’s like you see here below.

Anyway you make it, if you like peanut butter… or more like peanut butter cookies, you are going to swoon!

I ended up doing BOTH options for the stuff I made for my kids. Between the cereal, the peanut butter, the candy corn and M & Ms there are dry roasted salted peanuts covered, too!

It’s AHmazing.

Yes, it’s okay if that person is YOU!
