Default Dark chocolate malt

There's no "chocolate" in dark chocolate malt, right?

Just wanna make sure because I want to make spent grain dog biscuits and dogs can't have chocolate.

Anyone?

In small amounts,it just gives color. In larger amounts,they say it gives a chocolate like flavor. But yes,no actual chocolate is in it.

That always blew my mind how we can eat all the chocolate we want and just get fat, but for dogs it acts as a thermogenic and they'll either lose weight or die.

It blows my mind that people know this and still feed their dogs chocolate "cause he likes it!". Ugh idiots!

"spent grain dog biscuit"

Okay, I'll bite. Is that an original idea or just something I've missed? Do they like them? I've a saint and lab and they will eat anything, so 'like' is a bit of a relative term,
I have to chase both away from the rabbit poo...

Here's the recipe I've used. Its just grains, peanut butter, eggs, and flour. My dog seems to enjoy them as much as her regular milk bones. Just make sure you cook them long enough so that you get all the moisture out.

I made those once, shared them with 3 different dogs. They all loved them. Depending on your grainbill, spent grain cookies (for humans) can also be tasty.
