{Recipe Recap} Puppy Party Treats

I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to have a theme party so a “sip and see” for Monte was the perfect opportunity to get a little creative with some treats.


I made some Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats and used a cookie cutter I bought just for the occasion to make them fit my theme.


These things were gone in no time.  I will definitely be making them again.  Wonder if they’ll taste as good as squares…


Next up was some Peanut Butter Butterscotch Puppy Chow made with a bag of butterscotch chips, a cup of peanut butter, and half a stick of butter.  This stuff was VERY sweet.  That’s not a complaint, just an observation.  I really liked the flavor, but Shawn said he prefers original Puppy Chow.


And finally, my favorite treat – the Kibble Cake.


Pretty convincing, huh?


I bought a new dog bowl from Walmart for the cake to go in.  I baked a yellow cake, part of the batter in a regular cake pan and the other part in a Dutch oven so I could get the round shape I needed.


I used this frosting recipe, which was good, but it ended up being too crusty for my purposes because the cocoa pebbles didn’t stick to it as well as I needed.


What do you think, Monte?  Does this bowl of dog food look like something you’d like to eat?


I can’t take credit for the idea of the cake as I saw something similar on the interweb.  But I had to figure out how to make it look believable and I think I succeeded.


Ah, the weekend’s upon us!  It’s been a long week, and I am looking forward to the weekend.  Fingers crossed that Monte continues his habit of not making any noise in the morning and letting us wake up on our own on Sunday.

What a cute cake -- so realistic!

BTW, cocoa puff ice cream balls were a favorite treat of mine as a child.

That cake is so cute! Wish you would have come up with this before Chase's scooby doo party last year, it would have made a great treat for that :). Awesome job!
