Litterbox Cookies

There are two flavored cookies in this recipe: chocolate and gingerbread. The cookies are dense and not very sweet, but this is necessary for keeping their

shapes during baking. If you use white flour or sugar they may be tastier but they won't look like...umm...the "contents" of a litterbox!
Chocolate ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup (1 and 1/3 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • Grape-Nuts cereal
Gingerbread ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2/3 cup(1 and 1/3 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 2 and 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • spices--ginger, cinnamon, and cloves to taste (1/2 tsp each)
  • Grape-Nuts cereal
Mix-ins:
  • coconut
  • chocolate chips
  • butterscotch chips
  • peanut butter chips

Microwave the honey until it bubbles (about 1 minute). Add the butter and the molasses, if any. Add the egg, mix well, then mix in all of the other ingredients. Add mix-ins of your choice to some or all of the batter.

Chill 1 hour in the freezer or several hours in the fridge. Roll dough logs of random length and the diameter of cat "poops". Roll logs in grape-nuts and bake at 350 degrees till done (10 to 15 minutes).

Serve in a disposable cat litter box on a bed of grapenuts, with a cat litter scoop. I hear you get lovely effects by decorating the box and scoop with melted chocolate or pudding!

NOTE: This recipe worked especially well at my Halloween party where the table was already decorated with plastic flies!
