Harvest Puppy Chow

A slight twist on the classic Puppy Chow. My preferred candy for this recipe is Reece's Pieces and Chewy Carmel Bits but add any flavor combination you like such as pretzels, M&M's, candy corn, or marshmallows….the possibilities are endless! This makes enough to feed a crowd and is a favorite for kids and adults.
