It’s Fall.. Find the LIFE of the Party {Link-up}

Yay!!! Today is the first day of the It’s Fall link up and I’m so excited to see what you all have to share with me today.  I know that I’m going to be inspired!  Today’s theme is LIFE and the next two weeks are STYLE and BABIES (of the 2-legged or 4-legged variety). It's Fall Dates
Everyone knows that the LIFE of every party is around the table.  It doesn’t matter what season it is, everyone gathers around the table.  That’s just the way it is and I’m totally okay with that.  Here is a fun and festive party mix for you to share with your friends this fall season :-)From the Kitchen of Darby HawleyPumpkin Spice Puppy Chow
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup (half stick) butter
1/2 cup peanut butter or cookie butter (from Trader Joe’s)
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (if you don’t have this don’t buy it; I will tell you how to make this)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
9 cups corn chex cereal
1 cup powdered sugar

  1. Heat chocolate chips and butter together in this microwave until melted. Stir in peanut/cookie butter, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.
    1. To make your own pumpkin spice: mix together 2 tbs cinnamon, 1 tbs ground ginger, 2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ground cloves
  2. Place the cereal in a large mixing bowl, and pour the hot chocolate mixture on top. Gently toss to combine until the cereal is evenly coated.  Divide the cereal into two even batches and place each batch into a ziplock bag.
  3. Add half of the powdered sugar to each ziplock bag. Seal, and gently toss to combine until the cereal is coated. Add extra powdered sugar if needed.  Dig in!
