It’s almost Halloween!

Halloween is one of my favorite days of the entire year!

One thing I don’t like though?

Candy Corn.

Yuck!!!!

But I know people who love this combination of corn syrup and flavor.

So, today’s recipe is for them!

Well… it’s for our Pups!! LOL

Homemade Candy Corn Dog Treats

Ingredients:

For Treat:

  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup chicken or beef stock

For Icing:

  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1-2 Tbsps. water
  • Food coloring

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, mix by hand, until thoroughly combined. If it feels too sticky add a bit more flour or if too dry add more stock.
  3. Divide dough in half, or fourth’s if you want smaller cookies.
  4. Roll each piece of dough into a circle about ½” thick.
  5. Use a butter knife to slice dough in half, cut it in half again, and then cut each ¼ in half to make 8 triangles.  Repeat with each batch of remaining dough.
  6. Use a paintbrush to decorate your doggie treats.
  7. Place on a greased baking sheet or parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool, place in an airtight container at room temperature.
  10. To make candy corn icing:
  11. Combine flour with the water- 1 Tbsp. at a time until it forms the consistency of thick paint.

This is one of those special treats your dog will love to enjoy every year.  And, while it may look like candy corn, there’s nothing sugary about this treat.

Your dog may think it’s sweet of you to treat them though… LOL

Enjoy your Halloween!!
