Use your own imagination and have fun with this group of dog holiday treat recipes! Give them as gifts or take them with you as a "hostess gift" when you are invited to a picnic or party.
Experiment with different shapes, colors and Dog Treat Icings to make the same batch of cookies look like you spent hours slaving over the stove, whipping up different kinds of treats.
Holiday dog cookies make great gifts for the neighborhood dogs and for the dogs in your family. And a batch of dog cookies goes a long way, especially if you use Wilton mini Christmas cookie cutters! Or, for larger dogs, you might use these 4” holiday cookie cutters.
Adding Dog Treat Icing or color to an everyday dog treat, can give it pizazz and make it festive and fun.
Take dog bones, for instance. Make your dog's favorite flavor, and then decorate the bones for a holiday! Dip them in a colored dog treat icing or decorate the dog bones with swirls and dots.
Take time to experiment ahead of the holidays, so that you will be able to pick your very favorite recipes, to make as gifts or to serve to your dog's guests.
And plan to make your yummy dog treats ahead of time--to avoid the last minute rush!
