'recipe for chocolate crackles'

i love it!! i heard this on the midnight abc news here. what they are after
doing is ensuring that chocolate crackles are made of Kellogg products.
evidently, horror of horror some dreadful people are using non Kellogg
products to make chocolate crackles!!

peace & love
