    SHEENAP- butter helps improve the consistency of the chocolate, especially if you are doing this in the microwave.
    DENIMBLUE1955- maybe you shouldn't be looking for dog food recipes on a people-food website. let's hope people are smart enough to figure this out on their own.

    I suggest using a blender to mix the liquids and once you have them all blended let sit for 30 seconds to a minute. - 12/29/17

    Instead of the chocolate chips I use nutella. I microwave the peanut butter, nutella and a little butter in the microwave until melted then pour over the cereal. I use a mixture of cereals usually chex, fiber one "twigs", and bran flakes. I only use 1/2 cup powdered sugar then refrigerate. - 6/3/12

  • I had only rice chex (which is good with my blood type) and substituted Stevia in the Raw for powdered sugar, reduced the butter to 1/3 C, added cinnamon, and am pleased with the outome. Now to eat it in moderation... - 2/13/12
