{RECIPE} Peanut Butter and Carob Christmas Dog Treats

"Chocolate" and peanut butter? Doggone irresistible! These treats swap the chocolate for dog-friendly carob as a delicious adaptation of our smooth roll-and-cut peanut butter recipe. This dough handles well for roll-and-cut treats, but if you're looking for a quick and easy alternative, you can use fork flattened balls or go for our simple no-rolling treat method.

{RECIPE} Layered Strawberry Christmas Gummy Dog Treats

These strawberry layered gelatin gummy treats are healthy and deliciously festive looking, but  they're also begging to be made with watermelon, don't you think? Maybe when it's in season later this summer. It would be a great summer party recipe to adapt for human kids too. I must confess that (watermelon cuteness not withstanding), if I was remaking these festive coloured gummies, I might skip the layering and just make separate coloured gummy shapes to save some effort since strong colours in layers like this can start to bleed into the white after a few days or when frozen/thawed so the layers in these are prettiest when fresh...not that the dogs care...hehe.  Not into gummies?  We have a baked marbled red, white, and green strawberry mint treat recipe coming up soon, so stay tuned for more delicious ideas!
