Low Carb Puppy Chow for those on a Diet!

4 cups pork rinds, 1 1/2 ounces 
1/4 cup low carb chocolate chips 
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter 
1 tablespoon butter 
1/8 teaspoon vanilla 
1/4 cup granular Splenda


Chop the pork rinds into 1-inch pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Make sure not to include any crumbs. Put the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on 50% power until melted, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after half the time. Do not overcook or it might scorch. Stir until smooth then stir in the vanilla. Drizzle the chocolate mixture over the pork rinds a little at a time, gently tossing before drizzling with more chocolate. Be careful not to break up the pork rinds. Toss and stir until the pork rinds are completely coated or as well as possible. Spread them out on a wax paper lined baking sheet and dust with half of the Splenda. Turn each piece over and dust with the remaining Splenda. Chill until the chocolate has set completely and store in an airtight container. I put mine in the freezer to help it set up more quickly. You may want to store it in the refrigerator to keep the chocolate from getting sticky.
