Pumpkin Puppy Chow Recipe

I found the Kisses AND the M&Ms at Target.  But I found them in the Halloween section and not the candy row.  So maybe call ahead and see if your grocery store has them in stock.

    Couldn’t find the autumn kisses and used the caramel kisses instead. They had fall wrappers on them so they could work, right? Caramel and chocolate are hard to melt and keep melted to mix the chex mix with them. It did work well overall with the m&m’s added (I had my 10yod separate the yellow/red/orange from the bag and the brown ones for the Frankie cupcakes.) and the candy corn.
    thanks for the recipes!

    How do I remove all social media and add on app icons from this page? At one point I had a bar of the same or similar set vertically on the left, top of the web page horizontally, and another horizontal in the body of the page. I actually have to move the image around just the see what you wrote.
    Thank you for a frolic.
