Frozen peanut butter treats for dogs

One of my friends told me that dogs love peanut butter.  So I whipped up a batch of frozen peanut butter treats for Nikki.  Frozen so that on hot days, it’ll help Nikki keep cool.

What you’ll need.

  1. Smooth peanut butter – light
        I used about 200 grams.
  2. An ice cube tray
        I used a flexible Ikea “Plastis” silicon tray.
  3. Plastic freezer bags.
  4. Some small dry dog food
       The dry dog food helps stretch out the peanut mix.
  5. A round mixing bowl.
        I used a square bowl below, which made it hard to get all the mixture out.

Making the peanut butter treats

  1. Put the peanut butter into a warm bowl, with the dry dog food.
        The warm bowl makes it easier to mix the peanut butter.
        A friend has suggested added some water as well, as this would it
        even easier to mix and set.

  3. Place the tray into 2 freezer bags. ie. double-bag the tray.
        This will stop peanut butter smells from going though your refrigerator.
  4. Place into the freezer, and leave for at least 12 hours.
  5. Optional step.  Allow your dog to clean the peanut butter mix off your fingers.
  6. 12 hours later, the peanut butter treats are done!
