DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the lard and peanut butter together, either on the stove or in the microwave.
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the melted fats.
  • The original recipe suggests pouring into a square pan about 2 inches deep, or spreading onto tree limbs. I just put it into ziplock containers and scoop it out as needed to fill a screen type of feeder (See photos). I use my cookie scoop to take it out, but then mash and break up the scoops, because otherwise the squirrels can come and take a whole scoop at once, way too easily! I don't know if it would hold up well in cake form, as I haven't tried that, but it defintely doesn't melt or make a gloppy mess.
