Recipe Notes

Before using peanut butter, always check the ingredient list to ensure xylitol isn’t included. Xylitol can be lethal when ingested by dogs. Buy a natural or organic peanut butter that contains only peanuts – the oil separates to the top of the jar, so you’ll have to stir it every time you use it.
